New Delhi: Congress leader and Member of parliament Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at Union minister S Jaishankar over his clarification on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call of ‘Abki Baar Trump Sarkar’ at the Houston rally on September 22.

Rahul Gandhi sarcastically thanked Jaishankar for covering up PM Modi’s “incompetence”. Soon after the mega event of ‘Howdy Modi’, Congress party launched an attack on PM Modi for “campaigning” on behalf of US President Donald Trump at the Houston rally. Some leaders from congress criticized Narendra Modi for supporting the Republican Party of the US.

While interacting with Media in the US, S.Jaishankar had clarified that the PM was not endorsing Donald Trump’s re-election bid by turning around his own election slogan. Earlier, Jaishankar said he was merely referring to what Donald Trump himself had said to appeal 50,000 Indian-Americans gathered at the event of Howdy Modi.

Speaking about the charges that PM Modi ended up campaigning for a foreign leader, Jaishankar said, “No, he did not say that.” “We are not partial. So, our sort of approach to whatever happens in this country is their politics, not our politics,” Jaishankar said. S.Jaishankar sais “I think, please, look very carefully at what the prime minister said. My recollection of what the prime minister said was that candidate Trump had used this “Ab ki Baar Trump sarkar”. So PM is talking about the past,”.

Narendra Modi had said amid a huge round of applause for Trump at the sprawling NRG Stadium in Houston. Congress had earlier taken potshots at PM Modi and accused him of endorsing Donald Trump ahead of the 2020 US Presidential elections.

On Sunday, Congress said PM Modi’s meeting with Trump failed to meet India’s expectations despite the public display of friendly relations of India-America.
