New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday attacked Congress MP Rahul Gandhi by citing a report published in Chinese daily Global Times that said India’s enemies were using Congress’ shoulders to harm the national interest.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that it is a true stand on “anti-India” policy, adding that the Gandhi family has got “endorsement” from China.
Patra said that the report by Global Times clearly indicates that Beijing is frustrated by the steps taken by Indian Army to thwart any transgression by the PLA and China is manipulating the Congress to put forward its anti-India agenda.
Earlier, Chinese daily Global Times had tweeted, “PM Narendra Modi and the BJP face huge pressure amid border tensions with China, as the Indian National Congress is waiting for a chance to shake the BJP’s rule by heavily criticizing failed domestic governance and risky foreign policy: expert.”
“Be it Pakistan, terrorists or China; why is this that all of them like the Congress,” he asked, mentioning that Rahul Gandhi’s comments were highlighted by Pakistan in its dossier against India in the United Nations after Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre had revoked Article 370 on August 5, 2019,” BJP spokesperson said.
“Congratulations to Rahul Gandhi. You were earlier a hero of Pakistan. Now, you are a hero of China too. But you are a big zero for India. You are a hero for our enemies. China is in a disadvantageous position and is using the Congress’s shoulders to fire at India… This is a classic definition of anti-India stand,” he said.
