Rahul Gandhi on India-Russia relationship
Moreover, Rahul Gandhi said that his International engagements have no intention to seek support from others in India’s internal political battles. This has for long time been Bharatiya Janata Party’s claim and a key criticism directed towards him. He said “our fight is our fight”. In the speech that happened on Wednesday evening, he talked about India and Russia’s relationship and said that “we have certain dependency on Russia. So I would have a very similar stand as the Government of India. At the end of the day, we have to also look out for our interest.”
He further explained that India is a very large country and it is difficult for the country to have no relation with particular set of people. He said, “We will have better relations with few countries where as evolving relations with few others. That balance is there. But to say that India won’t have a relationship with this set of people is difficult for India to do.” He is on a 6 day visit to the United States.
