New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated the Foreign Ministry for the evacuation operation in Yemen. Modi said that it was not an easy task to rescue Indian citizens and bring them home safely amid bombarding in Yemen.
He congratulated External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Minister of State for External Affairs Gen (Retd) VK Singh for their continuous efforts.
He also said that such events often go dormant in media but making place in the hearts of the people is more important. Modi was all praise for Singh, who has faced attack from a section of the media over his “presstitutes” remark.
Reacting over this, VK Singh said that 42 years of service in the army taught him to do whatever he did in Yemen. He also thanked to the people who worked hard during the evacuation operation.
