New Delhi | Union Minister Giriraj Singh has hit out at Pakistan for criticising ISRO and Chandrayaan 2, and said that while India has reached the Moon, the neighbouring country is still exporting donkeys.
Giriraj Singh said that the neighbouring country should better look after its own economy rather than worrying about India’s successes and failures.
“We both got independence together and they separated after fighting with us. They should not worry about the success or failure of our Chandrayaan-2 mission, we have reached the Moon but they are still stuck with exporting donkeys,” Giriraj Singh said.
Terming the refusal of airspace for President Ram Nath Kovind by Pakistan as a “very bad decision”, he said it would earn the neighbours further ridicule from the international community.
“This is a very hurtful behaviour by the neighbouring country, it is symbolic of their mean behaviour. They went to the United Nations with the differences they had with us over the Kashmir issue and were sent back empty-handed. Nothing good will come out of this move for them,” Giriraj Singh said.
Giriraj Singh asserted Pakistan should look after its own poverty and starvation problem.
“If you want to compete with India, compete in the field of technological advancement. Fight to end poverty, hunger and other factors which will send a message that they are trying to improve their status. For them picking a fight with us would be like creating a Frankenstein monster situation,” Giriraj Singh said.
