Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today termed as a "good humanitarian gesture" Pakistan's decision to allow Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his wife.
"It is a good humanitarian gesture," she said at a press conference here when asked about Islamabad's decision.
Sitharaman said she learnt about Pakistan's decision from the media. "I don't know what is the position on allowing his wife to visit him, but it is a good gesture. It will boost Jadhav's morale in jail."
The Union minister is in Gujarat to campaign for the BJP for the next month's Assembly polls.
