In a veiled attack on foreign minister S Jaishankar, BJP leader and former Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has targeted his foeign policy in one of his tweets. Its important to know that former MP Swamy often targets the policies of the Modi government with his tweets.
A Twitter user tagged Subramanian Swamy and tweeted, “Jaishankar leaves for US today; to attend Quad, BRICS meets @Swamy39 Again both – Quad & BRICS !” Replying to the tweet on Monday (September 19, 2022), Subramanian Swamy wrote, “Hijda foreign policy.”
It should be noted that this isn’t the first time Swamy has attacked foreign minister S Jaishankar over his decisions and issues, concerning the country. Last year in May, BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP mocked External Affairs Minister by accusing him of being ‘dressed like a Waiter’ during his London trip to attend the G-7 meeting. Jaishankar is in London, where he attended the G-7 meeting through video conferencing prompting many to ask why he needed to waste taxpayers’ money on a trip to the UK if he is attending the summit from his hotel room in the English capital.
Swamy took a potshot at Jaishankar’s attire as he wrote, “I learn that India’s External Affairs Minister Shri Jaishankar dressed like a Waiter has been placed in Quarantine in London and cannot return home yet !! If not true, refute it please.”
This is not the first time that Subramanian Swamy has attacked the Modi government, its policies or any of its ministers. Earlier, he has also raised questions on the election of office bearers of the party organization.
In fact, on August 17, the BJP had announced its Parliamentary Board and Central Election Committee. In this, the party had excluded Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari from the list of Parliamentary Board.
Regarding this, Subramanian Swamy had said that the members of every post in the party are elected with the approval of Modi. In a tweet, he wrote, “In the early days of the Janata Party and then BJP, elections to the posts of the organization were conducted by the Parliamentary Board and this is also the demand of the party’s constitution, but now there is no election in the Bharatiya Janata Party. Members are nominated for each post with the approval of Modi.”
