External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that Soros is an old, rich and wrong-minded man sitting in New York who still thinks that the whole world should work according to him.
New Delhi: American billionaire George Soros, who has been targeting the PM Narendra Modi government at the Centre, is in a discussion about his remarks. Earlier BJP and Congress had retaliated to his statement. Now Foreign Minister Jaishankar has also launched a befitting attack on him. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that Soros is an old, rich and wrong-minded man sitting in New York who still thinks that the whole world should work according to him.
Foreign Minister strongly criticized George Soros
Jaishankar, who is on a tour of Australia, said that people like Soros actually invest resources in shaping the narrative. He said, 'People like Soros feel that if the person they want to see wins, then the election is good for them. If the result of the election is something else, then he will call democracy flawed.
Jaishankar further said that when I look at my own democracy, today I am a voter. This is unprecedented. Electoral results that are conclusive, electoral process that is not questioned. We are not one of those countries where after elections one goes to court for arbitration.
BJP had spoken strongly about George Soros
Earlier on Friday, Central Smriti Irani hit back at the press conference on the remarks made by American billionaire George Soares on PM Narendra Modi. Smriti Irani had said that attempts are being made to shake the Indian democratic structure from foreign soil. George Soares has tried to interfere in India's democracy. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on his target. In such a situation, the people of the country should give this call and a befitting reply should be given to this foreign power.
Congress also gave advice to George Soros
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh also reprimanded George Soros on this issue on Saturday. Whether or not the Adani scam involving the PM initiates a democratic resurgence in India entirely depends on the Congress, the opposition and our election process, he said. This has nothing to do with George Soros. Our Nehruvian legacy ensures that people like him cannot decide our election results.
What comment did George Soares make about PM Modi?
In fact, George Soros had recently targeted PM Modi on the Adani issue. He had said, Modi is silent on this issue, but he will have to answer questions from foreign investors and in Parliament. Soros was speaking at the Munich Security Conference. He said it would significantly weaken Modi's grip on India's federal government and open the door to pursuing much-needed institutional reforms. He had said, I hope that there will be a democratic transition in India.
