NEW DELHI: External affairs minister S Jaishankar on Friday hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and said « India’s major partnerships are stronger and international standing higher. »
He was responding to a video message posted on Twitter by Rahul Gandhi in which he had attacked the government saying that over the last six years, India has been « disturbed and disrupted » with regard to its foreign policy and economy.
In a series of tweets, the external affairs minister rebutted Rahul’s claims with details of the foreign policy initiatives taken by the Modi government in the last 6 years.
« Our major partn’ships are strongr & internat’l standng higher.Witness regular summits&informal meetngs wth #US #Russia #Europe & #Japan.India engages #China on more equal terms politically. Ask the analysts, » he said in the first tweet.

Jaishankar followed this with detailed tweets

Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi released the first video of a series to share his thoughts with people on various issues facing the country.
« Since 2014, the PM’s constant blunders and indiscretions have fundamentally weakened India and left us vulnerable. Empty words don’t suffice in the world of geopolitics, » he alleged in a tweet along with the video message.
Rahul Gandhi said one has to go into multiple spaces, including India’s economy and ties with neighbours and other countries, to understand why did the Chinese choose this particular time to move against India and violate the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and what gave them the confidence to turn so aggressive.
« Today, you have a country which is economically in trouble; in trouble as far as foreign policy is concerned; in trouble with its neighbours; and that’s why the Chinese have decided that this is possibly the best time to act and that is why they have acted, » he alleged.
