PM Narendra Modi, party praise Sushma Swaraj's speech at the UN general assembly

Narendra Modi praised external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj for her speech at the UN general assembly, saying she articulated effectively on a range of issues.
Swaraj, in a sharp rebuke to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif's "tirade" on Kashmir, said those accusing others of rights violations must introspect. Her speech came at a time when BJP has been under pressure from the opposition post the Uri attack to live up to its tough rhetoric against Pakistan. 

 After Sushma's censure of Pakistan for fomenting terror and perpetrating the "worst form of state oppression" in Balochistan, Modi tweeted, "Congrats to EAM @SushmaSwaraj for a firm, effective & fine articulation of a wide range of global issues at UNGA." Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan also applauded Swaraj saying she had given a "clear and tough" message on the issue of terrorism. 

"Sushmaji was unambiguous while seeking the world community's support in isolating countries like Pakistan, which has been audaciously supporting terrorists," said BJP spokesperson Shrikant Sharma. Swaraj had talked of nations where UN-designated terrorists roam freely and deliver "poisonous sermons of hate", an apparent reference to Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar. She also made a strong pitch for isolating such nations. 

Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tweeted, "Sushma Swaraj made it clear that there will be no compromise on J&K." BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said Swaraj had highlighted that India was a responsible nation. "India has exposed Pakistan's double standards on a global stage and we should expect the world takes cognisance of our concerns and forces Pakistan to shun the policy of shielding and grooming terror," Kohli said.
