New Delhi : Attacking at the Congress over its scepticism about US President Donald Trump’s visit to India, the BJP on Saturday asked the opposition party why it is unhappy when the country’s stature is being raised globally.
Addressing a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, party spokesperson Sambit Patra said Trump’s visit will be a landmark moment in the Indo-US relationship and advised the Congress to “start taking pride in the nation’s achievements. This is a meeting of the world’s largest and oldest democracies and it should be celebrated,” he said.
“Underlining that Trump himself has said multiple times that India is a hard bargainer, Patra said the Congress should not be worried about India’s interests. The BJP takes this occasion of questioning the Congress Party what do they have to say in its defense. What did they achieve after 26/11?”
“From Sochi to Mallapuram to now Trump’s visit, PM Modi has worked extra time and extremely hard to make important bilateral ties with India and ensure that these bilateral relationships jump to the next leadership level” He said.
