Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy has “completely failed” and he needs to explain what he does on his “foreign jaunts”.
“PM Modi has completely failed on foreign policy front. He owes explanation on what did he do on his foreign jaunts?” Kejriwal tweeted.
Kejriwal’s remarks come as India’s attempts to get membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group being stalled, with China leading a group of countries that are insisting on New Delhi being a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said the prime minister’s office must be “questioned” for NSG defeat. “For its defeat on the NSG issue, shouldn’t the PMO be questioned which is only focused on weakening state governments? Is there anyone to question or is everyone busy?” he tweeted.
India’s application for NSG membership was taken up at the 48-nation bloc’s special session in Seoul on Thursday, and is also being discussed on Friday.
