BJP welcomes Sharif’s decision, calls it a ‘new beginning’

BJP on Saturday expressed delight at the decision of Nawaz Sharif to attend the oath taking ceremony of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister.
“This is a delightful piece of news that Pakistan Prime Minister has accepted Narendra Modi’s invitation…this is the beginning of a new relationship. It is good news,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said here.
He said Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar are India’s neighbours. “And neighbours cannot be changed,” he said.

Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted welcoming the decision of Sharif to attend the swearing-in.
“Very glad to hear Pakistan PM has accepted invite, shows that he can prevail over forces inimical to good relations with India,” he said.
But at the same time he said he can’t help feel sorry for others taking oath or attending the ceremony “because the only photo op that will matter now will be the Modi-Sharif handshake.”
