Congress on Monday took potshots at NDA government’s foreign policy, a day after BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi attacked the Centre for “mishandling” the recent border troubles with Pakistan and China.
“NDA’s Foreign Policy-99 Lahore Bus=Kargil intrusion& kandhahar hijack 01 Agra summit=Parliament assault 02Operation Parakram=Kaluchak outrage...And they are proud of this legacy!” Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari tweeted.
In his first public rally after being anointed the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate, Modi had yesterday attacked the Centre, saying, “The problems are not at the borders, but it lies in Delhi (Centre)” Addressing a huge gathering of ex-servicemen at Ahirwal region of Haryana, Mr. Modi had also praised the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led Government’s achievements in resolving pressing foreign policy issues.
“It feels good to recall the government of Atalji and Advaniji,” he had said while underlining the need for capable leadership to resolve pressing issues.
Mr. Modi had said it was Mr. Vajpayee who had brought to the world’s centre stage the Kashmir issue and terrorism sponsored by Pakistan.
India’s neighbouring countries were posing problems to it because of a “weak” government at the Centre, the BJP strongman had said.
“The problem is in Delhi. And hence the solution to this problem has to be found in Delhi itself. The problem will be solved only when a competent, patriotic and people-oriented government is formed at the Centre,” he had said.
