Chidambaram slams Modi for Trump’s comments on India

Chennai: Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister P Chidambaram slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over US President Donald Trump mentioning India during his presidential debate with Joe Bidden.

“Mr Donald Trump clubs India with China and Russia and accused the three countries of hiding the number of Covid deaths. He also accused the three countries for causing the most air pollution. Will Mr Modi hold another ‘Namaste Trump!’ rally to honour his dear friend?” Chidambaram tweeted.

“In 47 months I have done more than you have in 47 years–said Mr Donald Trump in the Presidential debate yesterday if the statement reminds you of someone in India, that’s your imagination!” he added.

Chidambaram further stated: “No one killed Jessica” was the anguished cry a few years ago, “No one demolished the mosque” is the anguished cry today.
