Govt’s overseas coverage — learn how to lose associates, affect no person: Rahul Gandhi’s dig at Centre

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday took a dig on the Centre over Bhutan and China signing a pact on border talks, saying the federal government’s overseas coverage is about learn how to lose associates and affect no person.

In a press release, Bhutan mentioned its Foreign Minister Lyonpo Tandi Dorji and China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Wu Jianghao signed on Thursday the MoU on the “three-step roadmap” for expediting the Bhutan-China Boundary negotiations.

“GOI’s foreign policy: How to lose friends and influence nobody,” Gandhi tweeted and tagged a media report over the settlement signed between Bhutan and China.

India on Thursday reacted cautiously to Bhutan and China signing the settlement. “We have noted the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Bhutan and China today. You are aware that Bhutan and China have been holding boundary negotiations since 1984. India has similarly been holding boundary negotiations with China,” Spokesperson within the Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi mentioned.
