TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ The BJP reacts to Rahul Gandhi’s tweet slamming the BJP’s diplomatic failure with China on Masood Azhar. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad addressed the media after China blocked India’s bid to designate JeM Chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist in UNSC 1267 list and asked, “Would the Congress party adopt a different voice even in the case of a cruel killer & a global terrorist Masood Azhar? It was Congress which failed to blacklist Azhar.”
He asked, “Why is Rahul celebrating? It was Nehru who gifted UNSC seat to China. Nehru’s error is costing India.” The Congress chief attacked the prime minister and said he had not spoken on China blocking the resolution in the UN Security Council. The party accused the BJP of letting Masood off the hook again and also questioned Modi what was the use of “swinging” with Xi.
“Weak Modi is scared of Xi. Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India. NoMo’s China diplomacy: 1. Swing with Xi in Gujarat. 2. Hug Xi in Delhi. 3. Bow to Xi in China,” Gandhi said on Twitter. Former J-K CM Omar Abdullah tweeted, “PM Modi surrendered to China on Azhar and surrendered to Pakistan and its proxies by delaying elections in J&K. How can the BJP claim to have been tough on internal security and tough against terror?
