New Delhi [India]: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s meeting with the UK’s former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has sparked a new controversy as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been criticizing Rahul Gandhi and the grand old party ever since the meeting took place.
Jeremy is known to be a centre-left leader and has given anti-India statements in the past.
Earlier on Monday, the Indian Overseas Congress had tweeted Gandhi’s picture with Jeremy.
Attacking Gandhi over his meeting with Corbyn in London, BJP Leader Amit Malviya tweeted, “Rahul Gandhi with UK MP and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Jeremy is known for his visceral dislike for India, advocates Kashmir’s secession and is unequivocally anti-Hindu. Gandhi has finally found his overseas collaborator, who denigrates India with the same impunity as him.”
Meanwhile, BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawala also came out to slam Rahul Gandhi over the meet and questioned why the Congress leader was meeting with “anti-India elements”. Poonawala shared the image of Rahul with Corbyn and said, “Whether it is meeting with anti-India elements like Jeremy Corbyn who echo Pakistan propaganda on Kashmir or signing MoU with Chinese and taking Chinese money into RGF or meeting Chinese during Doklam, why is Rahul Gandhi’s hands always against with those against India.” Poonawala also spoke to Republic and said that Congress should come forward and condemn the development.
