While it demanded an apology from BJP chief Amit Shah for "having distributed certificates of sincerity to Pakistan", it took a swipe at PM Modi saying he was "nose led" repeatedly by the Pakistani establishment into situations which led to national embarrassment.

"From day one, we had asked what convinced the Prime Minister or assured him that the understanding reached between his NSA Ajit Doval and the Pakistani NSA former ISI General Naseer Janjua convinced him that the entire establishment of Pakistan endorsed the talks and the peace process. He and his government have been silent.

"First it happened post-Ufa when there was an attack in Udhampur, then Gurdaspur, then after his dramatic visit to Lahore and Raiwind to Nawaz Sharif's residence, in five days, we had the attack in Pathankot. What Prime Minister has claimed and his government as diplomatic triumph has turned out to be a diplomatic disaster," senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma Sharma told reporters.

Congress' communication department chief Randeep Surjewala said "reports in Pakistani media quoting leaked contents of Pakistani Joint Investigation Team report on Pathankot terror attack have once again exposed the doubled-faced policy of Pakistan in dealing with terrorism."

He said "it is now clear that neither has Modiji's rhetoric of 56 inches chest or showing red eyes to Pakistan and China paid off nor has his sudden visit to Pakistan and attending feasts and marriage parties with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had any effect."
