Jaishankar attacks Rahul Gandhi over foreign policy

Jaishankar attacks Rahul Gandhi over foreign policy

New Delhi, Jul 17(UNI) External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday sharply attacked senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi after he accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of constant blunders and indiscretions that have fundamentally weakened India.

The EAM Minister took to twitter to respond him and reminded Mr Gandhi that he appeared to have glossed over Pakistan in his video message.

'And #Pakistan (that you skipped) surely notes the difference between Balakot & Uri on the one hand, and Sharm-el-Sheikh, Havana & 26/11 on the other. Ask yourself,' Mr Jaishankar said in a series of tweets.

'Since 2014, the PM's constant blunders and indiscretions have fundamentally weakened India and left us vulnerable. Empty words don't suffice in the world of geopolitics,' Mr Gandhi tweeted this morning, along with a video of him discussing the border tension between India and China.

Mr Jaishankar said that India’s major relationship are stronger.

'Our major partnerships are stronger and international standing higher. Witness regular summits and informal meetings with the US, Russia, Europe and Japan. India engages China on more equal terms politically... Ask the analysts,' he said in a tweet.

'We speak our mind more openly now. On CPEC, on BRI, on South China Sea, on UN sanctioned terrorists, etc... Ask the media,' he tweeted, referring to the so-called China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the Belt and Road Initiative.

India has right from the start protested against China's CPEC push as the corridor passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

'Difficult ties with Maldives, after India watched President Nasheed being toppled in 2012, now stand transformed... Ask our businesses,' Mr Jaishankar further tweeted.

'Nepal after 17 years is getting Prime Ministerial visits. And a swathe of developmental projects: power, fuel, housing, hospital, roads, etc... Ask their citizens,' he added.
