Congress leader Rahul Gandhi strongly attacked the BJP and the central government in the 'Ideas for India' program. Rahul Gandhi said that PM Modi does not listen to anyone.
New Delhi: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said at the 'Ideas for India' program at Cambridge University in London that the Indian Foreign Service has become arrogant. On this, the External Affairs Minister of India S Jaishankar has retaliated against Rahul Gandhi. Actually, Rahul Gandhi had questioned the Indian Foreign Service in the program.
He said in the seminar, “I was talking to some bureaucrats in Europe and they were saying that the Indian Foreign Service has completely changed. They don't listen, they have become arrogant. Now they just tell us what orders are being given to them, no talks are taking place." Rahul Gandhi said in London.
On these allegations of Rahul Gandhi, former diplomat and external affairs minister S Jaishankar said, "It is not called arrogance but protecting the interest of the nation." In a tweet, Jaishankar wrote-
“Yes, the Indian Foreign Service has changed. Yes, they follow the orders of the government. Yes, they contradict the arguments of others. But it is not called ego but it is called confidence. This is called protecting the national interest." It is worth noting that the External Affairs Minister has also shared a 19-second video of Rahul Gandhi's statement.
After this, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala also responded to Jaishankar in a tweet. He wrote-
“Yes, it is also called being subject to political masters while flouting foreign policy. Yes, it is said not to stand before China in the face of illegal occupation of our territory. Yes, it is called taking forward the agenda of one party and not the country."
