Congress leaders hit out at PM Modi’s address to G-7
A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi burdened on freedom of thought and democracy in his digital address to the G-7 nations, Congress leaders on Monday took a dig at the federal government.
Senior chief and former Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, in a collection of tweets, stated, “PM Modi’s speech at the G7 Outreach meeting is inspiring as well as ironic. The Modi government should practise in India what it preaches to the world,” he stated.
It was ‘sad’ to be aware that Mr. Modi was the ‘only guest’ who was bodily not current at the outreach assembly. “Ask yourself why? Because India is an outlier as far as the fight against Covid 19 is concerned. We are the most infected and least vaccinated country (as a proportion of the population),” he added.
On Sunday, Mr. Modi stated India was a pure ally of the G-7 international locations in defending democracy, freedom of thought and liberty from a number of threats stemming from authoritarianism, terrorism, violent extremism and financial coercion.
Former Law and Information Technology Minister Kapil Sibal focused the federal government over its claims by tweeting, “G – 7. India signs off on joint statement: Reaffirms the values of ……” freedom of expression ,each on-line and offline…” Sign statements overseas. Violate them at residence. Freedoms devalued: Internet shutdowns, sedition concentrating on: journalists, college students, teachers and so forth”.
