Erratic Trump Praises Imran Khan, Mocks PM Modi; India Hits Back

Published

on

India has condemned US President Donald Trump’s comments ridiculing Indian PM Modi and their country’s role in Afghanistan, asserting Delhi “plays a significant role as a development partner” to Kabul. Earlier, Trump had signalled that Pakistan was a traditional ally and he will hold talks with PM Imran Khan over Afghan Peace Process.

Saudi, UAE and Pakistan Can Play a “Decisive Role” in Negotiations with the Afghan Taliban

Trump said on Wednesday he got along very well with Indian Prime Minister but PM Modi was “constantly telling me he built a library in Afghanistan.” “You know what that is? That’s like five hours of what we spend,” Trump told reporters at the White House.  “And we are supposed to say, ‘oh, thank you for the library’. I don’t know who is using it in Afghanistan,” Trump added. 

The remarks drew condemnation from all Indian political parties, including the opposition, which rallied behind Prime Minister Modi. “MMaybeTrump should know that while he is denouncing every other help in Afghanistan, India has been building not only libraries, but roads, dams, schools and even parliament building,” Ram Madhav, a BJP general secretary, said on Twitter.

Trump’s remarks have also prompted a response from India’s main opposition Congress, which said India did not “need sermons from the US on Afghanistan.” Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel called Trump’s remarks as “completely unacceptable,” urging Prime Minister Modi to firmly respond.

US Demands Indian Army To Battle The Taliban in Afghanistan

India says its projects worth $3 billion in Afghanistan speaks for itself. India’s projects in Afghanistan include a 218-kilometer road, a dam providing irrigation to farmers as well as training programs for more than 3,500 Afghans in India.
