New Delhi : BJP National spokesperson today, at a conference held at BJP HQ asked Rahul Gandhi about his meeting with Chinese ministers in Beijing via media.
Patra said, “We want to know from the Congress what transpired between Rahul Gandhi and the Chinese ministers. Why the protocol (of informing the Ministry of External Affairs) was not followed for the meeting?”
Hours after Congress president Rahul Gandhi told a conference in Odisha that he would respond with “a hug” to the “abuses” given by the BJP party, spokesperson Sambit Patra picked up a remark from the same meeting to launch counter-attack on the main opposition party. Sambit Patra sought to know from the Congress and Rahul Gandhi the details of his “meeting with Chinese ministers in Beijing” during Kailash Mansarovar yatra in “August-September 2018”.
The BJP’s offensive against Rahul Gandhi followed the Congress president attack on the RSS, the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi during an interaction with the intellectuals in Bhubaneswar as part of the Odisha Dialogue earlier in the day. At the public meeting, Rahul Gandhi referred to his Kailash Mansarovar yatra to say that he “met a couple of Chinese ministers” during his visit to China.
