The Shiv Sena has launched a veiled attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Paris on Monday. Sena leader Sanjay Raut said that there could be no bigger example of tolerance than the Prime Minister choosing to meet Sharif.

..& language of spreading terrorism is spoken,I don't think there can be a bigger example of tolerance:Sanjay Raut on PM Modi-PM Sharif meet- ANI (@ANI_news) December 1, 2015
The Shiv Sena had also raised heckles on the revelations made by arrested Border Security Force head constable Abdul Rasheed about an alleged ISI mole in the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
Modi and Sharif held a informal meeting on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris. After the meeting, Sharif is reported to have said, "It was a good meeting, done in a cordial environment".
Back home however, the Opposition has not taken very kindly to the PM's gesture. Opposition leaders said there should be a political consensus in the country before talks like these take place abroad.
"We were not aware of Modi ji meeting Nawaz Sharif; I believe there should be a political consensus in the country before these talks take place," former law minister Ashwini Kumar told ANI.
