Yashwant Sinha attacks Modi government for Postponement of 2+2 dialogue


New Delhi, July 6 : In a satirical tweet, former union minister Yashwant Sinha on Friday launched an all-out attack at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi government over its foreign policy and held it responsible for the postponement of 2+2 talks between India and US and the refusal of UK Defence Minister to meet Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

“The US unceremoniously postpones the 2+2 talks. Defence minister of UK refuse to meet our defence minister in London. Yet our foreign policy is more successful than ever before,” Sinha tweeted.

Sinha said Bharatiya Janata Party has been claiming that India’s foreign policy is more successful than ever before but the manner in which the so-called 2-plus-2 dialogue between India and the US, scheduled for July 6 was postponed in the last-minute indicates the weak foreign policy.

Sinha also listed out the UK media report which alleged that  British defence minister Gavin Williamson turned down a request for a bilateral meeting with Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The meeting was requested over a month ago by Indian officials, and at least two British ministers including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson reportedly sought to convince Williamson of the importance of finding time for Sitharaman.
