‘Never Insulted India’ Says Rahul Gandhi Over Recent Speech Row

London: Amid the row over the recent speech of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in Cambridge University, he claimed that he never insulted India on foreign soil.

During an interaction with the Indian Journalists’ Association in London, Rahul Gandhi said that “I have never defamed my country. Not interested in it and won’t do it ever. Of course, the BJP likes to twist my words. That’s fine. And the media likes to sort of play it up because of TRP. But the fact is the person who defames India when he goes abroad is the Prime Minister of India,”.

He also lashed out at the centre and said that External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar “does not understand the China threat.”

He said that “As far as Indian foreign policy is concerned, I support the Indian foreign policy and I am okay with it. I don’t have a huge disagreement with it.”

He further added that “With regards to an invasion, we have already been invaded. We have got 2000 square km of our territory that is in the hands of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and the Prime Minister himself has stated that nobody has entered India, not a single inch of land has been taken and this destroyed our negotiation position because our negotiators are being asked what’s the fuss about.”

He said “The Chinese are acting in a hostile manner, in an aggressive manner and we need to be very very careful and I have been stating that again and again, I don’t think the penny has dropped in the government. I think there is a risk as you say,”.

Speaking about Congress’s China policy, Rahul Gandhi said that Congress’s policy was that they would not allow anyone to enter Indian territory.
