BJP’s New Nickname For Rahul- ‘Chinese Gandhi’; Comes After China Asks For India’s Permission

The Indian Embassy received a letter from China requesting permission to see Congress President Rahul Gandhi off who was in the country for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.


China’s letter to Embassy

The Chinese Embassy in India had sought permission from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for a temporary pass for entry into the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi for  Zhou Yuyun (Counsellor of China Embassy) to see off Rahul Gandhi.

At a press conference, BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra said “Rahul Gandhi wanted the Chinese Ambassador to see him off. The Ambassador had sought permission for it in writing to the Ministry of External Affairs so that the ceremonial lounge at the Indira Gandhi International Airport could be used for giving him a ceremonial see off in the presence of the Ambassador and other diplomats of that country.”

Patra claimed that the MEA did not respond to the letter.

The Congress hit back saying the BJP was insulting the abode of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati by such “cheap” political tactics.

Party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that an “unnerved” Prime Minister and a rattled BJP have shown their parochial, hateful mindset by mocking at the religious journey.

“Calling this auspicious yatra honeymoon tourism by the BJP is the vilest attack on Hindu faith and belief,” Surjewala maintained.
