On Monday, Trump claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him to mediate in resolving the Kashmir issue with Pakistan.

As he met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House, Trump offered to be the "mediator" on the Kashmir issue and even said he has received a request to do so from Modi during a recent meeting with him.

The government vehemently denied Trump's claim on late Monday night and also in both the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday.

She quietly passed it on Tiwari, who started reading the transcript. Tewari said the remarks made by Trump were serious in nature and the Prime Minister should personally clarify on the issue. Similar demand was made by TMC's Saugata Roy and DMK's T R Baalu.
