Responding to a letter written by Modi to Prime Minister

Responding to a letter written by Modi to Prime Minister

Manmohan Singh, the PMO dubbed as "unsubstantiated allegations" its contents about discussions with Pakistan on the Sir Creek issue. Expressing apprehensions just ahead of Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik's visit to India on December 14 to discuss a range of bilateral issues, Modi, in his letter to the Prime Minister, said Sir Creek, a marshy land in Gujarat, should "not be handed over to Pakistan" and talks on this issue should be stopped. Union Minister and Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said it is "very mischievous" on the part of the Chief Minister to "stoop to such level of politics". "There is no question of giving the land to Pakistan and there is no such proposal," he said. He added that in a bid to take advantage in elections, Modi is trying to resort to "all sorts of lies".
