Pak media terms Modi’s victory ‘emphatic mandate’

Saturday, 25 May 2019 | PTI | Islamabad

Prime Minister Narendra Modi winning a second five-year term drew a mixed response from the Pakistani media, with some calling it an “emphatic mandate” based on national security while others terming it a “global trend” of right-wing populists sweeping to victory.

Dawn newspaper in a front page report wrote that Modi won an “emphatic mandate” in the general elections that saw him pitching national security as an “invincible talisman”.

The News International termed Modi’s win as “dramatic” but added that it only was a reflection of a global trend.
