The Union minister alleged that the Congress could stoop to any level for "vote-bank" politics.

The Indian government on Monday (October 21) criticised Pakistan’s move of unilaterally stopping postal mail service between the two neighbouring countries, which it said was in breach of international norms.

Speaking on the sidelines of an event in New Delhi, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Pakistan resorted to the move without giving India any prior notice, reported news agency PTI.

“Pakistan’s decision is directly in contravention of international postal union norms. But Pakistan is Pakistan,” Prasad, who is the Minister for Communications and IT, was quoted as saying.

“Without any prior notice or information, (Pakistan) has stopped sending postal department’s letter to India,” he added.
