NEW DELHI: Activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan today disapproved Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's use of language against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Pakistani JIT visit, and termed it as "political short-sightedness".            

"Despite grave problems with PM, it is absurd for AK to call him an ISI/Pak agent. Politically shortsighted. Cant beat BJP in patriotic jingoism (sic)," Bhushan, Swaraj Abhiyan founder and former AAP leader, tweeted.        

Kejriwal had yesterday said that Modi's "invitation" to the Pakistani Joint Investigation Team, which included an ISI official, to probe the Pathankot attack amounted to giving a "clean chit" to the spy agency for the attack and demanded that he tender an "apology" for the "monumental" foreign policy failure.           

His minister Kapil Mishra went a step further tweeting, "Do we have a ISI agent as PM now?? Its very serious the way PM is surrendering to anti India forces?"
