In a Twitter post, the premier wrote, “When leaders in Israel & India show a moral bankruptcy in their readiness to annex occupied West Bank & IOK in defiance of international law, UNSC resolutions & their own Constitution for votes, don’t their people feel a sense of outrage & wonder how far they will go simply to win an election?”

Israel is voting today in its most closely-fought general election in years, as its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of the right-wing Likud Party, seeks a fifth term in office.

Indians will head to the polls from Thursday until May 19, which will decide if Narendra Modi will run the country for another five years. Modi’s main rival is opposition leader Rahul Gandhi.

The BJP has made a new pledge to scrap a law that gives special privileges – such as preventing outsiders from buying property – to residents of Indian-occupied Kashmir.

Modi’s party also said it was committed to building a grand Hindu temple in place of a Muslim mosque demolished by Hindu mobs in the city of Ayodhya in 1992.
