Ned Price, a spokesman for the US State Department, declined to comment on Congressman Rahul Gandhi’s criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy. In fact, when Ned Price was asked about Rahul Gandhi’s claim that PM Modi’s ineffective policies have brought China and Pakistan closer than ever, he replied, “I will definitely not support these comments.” He stated that this is a Pakistani and Chinese issue that should be handled by those two countries.
On Wednesday, Rahul made a statement in the Lok Sabha.
During a debate in the Lok Sabha on the Motion of Thanks on President Ram Nath Kovind’s address, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi claimed that the Modi government’s wrong policies had brought Pakistan and China together. He went on to say that the situation we’re in is no different. This is a serious threat to India’s national security. What path have you taken us on? In addition, Rahul claimed that India had no guests for the Republic Day celebrations this year because it is completely isolated and surrounded. PM Modi, he said, should ask himself why he is unable to attract guests on Republic Day. Sri Lanka, Nepal, Burma, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and China surround us. Everywhere we go, we are surrounded. Our adversaries are aware of our position.
S. Jaishankar, the Minister of External Affairs, refutes Rahul Gandhi’s claim.
External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar rejected Rahul Gandhi’s claim in the Lok Sabha, saying, “Rahul Gandhi alleged in the Lok Sabha that Pakistan and China have become united because of this government.” Here are a few historical takeaways: Pakistan illegally handed over the Shaksgam Valley to China in 1963. In the 1970s, China built the Karakoram Highway via PoK. On the other hand, in response to Rahul Gandhi’s claim that he did not receive guests at the Republic Day celebrations, he said that Rahul Gandhi does not realise that the Corona period is currently underway.
