Pakistan has taken away US in a single stroke, Rahul hits Modi for foreign policy failure
New Delhi: Indian Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his claims of growing friendship between India and the United States, also sweeping United States President Donald Trump and Pakistan away in a single stroke, Zee News has reported.
Responding to Trump`s tweet that talked of America`s evolving friendship with Pakistan, Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter and wrote, "Modi ji quick; looks like President Trump needs another hug."
Trump`s tweet had come a day after the Pakistani security forces rescued an American-Canadian family from the clutches of the Haqqani terror network, operative in Islamabad.
In a marked turnaround of sorts, Trump had earlier accused Pakistan of "housing the very terrorists that we are fighting.
But that will have to change, and that will change immediately." This was after Prime Minister Modi`s June visit to the U.S. wherein Trump`s description of the former as a `true friend` had set the tone for a successful bilateral meeting between the two nations, and rightly so, from their bear-hug to their praises for each other, everything reeked of a growing bonhomie between the world leaders.
