New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday took a swipe at Modi government’s foreign policy, saying “its policy towards Pakistan oscillates from one extreme to the other”.
Addressing the Congress parliamentary party meeting here, Gandhi also blamed the government for its failed policy on the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) membership, saying “its policy exposed the country to a snub”.
“How does the Modi government explain the incoherence and inconsistency of its foreign policy despite the Prime Minister’s frequent travels abroad, his equally frequent embraces of world leaders and impromptu birthday calls,” said Gandhi.
“Its policy towards Pakistan oscillates from one extreme to the other. Relations with Nepal are an all-time low. Its ill-prepared policy on the NSG membership exposed us as to a snub and is in complete contrast to what the UPA achieved in 2008,” she added.
Gandhi further said: “The Modi government seems to be changing our country’s stand on security and defence issues, departing radically from policies that have stood the test of time over the decades.”
