Was PM Modi really going to visit Pakistan?
A few days ago, a senior Pakistani journalist had claimed that in 2020-21 such a situation had developed that relations between India and Pakistan would have normalised. Pakistani journalist Javed Chaudhary said in his audio column, ‘India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi was going to visit Pakistan in April 2021. During this he could meet the then PM Imran Khan. There was also a possibility that the Kashmir dispute would have been resolved during this period but Imran backed out at the last moment. Shah Mehmood Qureshi told him that if he did this, people would say that you have done a deal for Kashmir. However, these claims have not been confirmed from anywhere.
