US Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders, a strong contender for the presidential candidate from the Democratic Party in the US, said on Tuesday that Washington should seek India’s partnership in fighting climate change and not in the sale of arms worth billions of dollars.

Sanders tweeted – “Instead of selling $3 billion in weapons to enrich Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed, the United States should be partnering with India to fight climate change,” Sanders said in a tweet, the first by a Democratic presidential candidate on Trump’s India visit. “We can work together to cut air pollution, create good renewable energy jobs, and save our planet,” he said.

Bernie Sanders, 78, continues to criticize President Donald Trump and his policies. Bernie Sanders is considered a key opponent of Donald Trump in the presidential election to be held in the US this year.

The US president had announced deals to sell state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment worth over $3 billion. Talking about defence and strategic ties between the two countries, Trump said the US is looking forward to providing India with some of the best and most feared military equipment on the planet.
