Don’t POLITI-CISE Trump Visit…BJP To Congress

BJP rebukes Congress a day after the Congress said Trump’s visit should not become an extension of the US Presidential election campaign but yield concrete results for India.

Taking on the Congress over its scepticism about US President Donald Trump’s visit to India, the BJP on Saturday said this trip will be a landmark moment in Indo-US relations and the opposition party should take pride in the “nation’s achievements”. The BJP also said there are times when political parties should keep aside their identities and “think as one nation”.

This comes a day after the Congress said Trump’s visit should not become an extension of the US Presidential election campaign but yield concrete results for India.

The visit should not be reduced to a photo opportunity or a PR exercise that would devalue the importance of Indo-US partnership, the Congress had said.

Addressing a press conference at the BJP headquarters here, party spokesperson Sambit Patra asked the Congress why it was unhappy when the country’s stature is being raised.

“This is a meeting of the world’s largest and oldest democracies and it should be celebrated,” he said.

“There are times when political parties should keep aside their identities and think as one nation,” Sambit Patra said.
