Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif congratulates PM Narendra Modi for his historic third term

Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, on Monday, congratulated his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for reelecting as Prime Minister of India for the third consecutive term. “Felicitations to @narendramodi on taking oath as the Prime Minister of India,” PM Shehbaz wrote on X.
His message for PM Modi came a day after concluding a five-days visit to China where he met Chinese President Xi Jinping and pleaded for more investment in Islamabad.

Notably, in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, the BJP party-led alliance secured 293 seats out of 543. The majority mark in the lower house is 272. But, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) which fought elections with BJP, declared Modi as their leader. Subsequently, Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India on Sunday.
