News24 Poll: Nation welcomes PM Modi’s decision of boycotting SAARC summit

New Delhi: Ever since the cowardly attack of Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri, the tension is palpable between both the neighboring states, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi deciding against visiting Islamabad for SAARC summit.

 

When we questioned our audience in a News24 poll on Twitter, 91% people responded that they welcome the prime minister’s decision.

With India's decision to pull out from the summit on Tuesday, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Bhutan, too followed the suit. Now, the November 9-10 summit automatically stands postponed or cancelled.


On September 24, Prime Minister Modi gave a strong message to Pakistan from Kozhikode saying that India will not forget the sacrifices of 18 soldiers killed in the Uri terror attack and will work to isolate Pakistan globally for exporting terror.
