Individuals from within the country who engage in politics outside; foreigners who interfere: Jaishankar 2023

“People from within the nation are bringing politics outside, and people from outside the country are interfering in politics inside,” stated S Jaishankar, Minister of Foreign Affairs.

These comments were made despite the fact that the BJP is demanding an apology from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his most recent address, which took place in London, and the opposition party is refusing to give in to the BJP’s demand.

The situation in India pleased many people worldwide.

“Before 2014, a lot of people all around the world were quite content with the way things were going in India. However, following that year, they saw different levels of confidence and various views.

Many have all of a sudden begun to claim that there is something wrong, that the court is not acting correctly, that the electoral commission is not right, and that there are restrictions being placed on the press. Only after 2014 did everything start to change? Jaishankar stated during an event in Bengaluru on Friday.

“What causes that to take place? There are people living outside of India that are interested in the people living within India. And when those individuals are not successful at the polls and they are regarded as less and less representing the reality of India today.

There is an attempt from the outside to make it seem as though that is normal and that India has started to stray in some way. “If you look back in time, you’ll find that this is the norm — what you’re experiencing right now,” Jaishankar explained.

During his time at the event hosted by the Member of Parliament for Bengaluru South, Tejasvi Surya, Jaishankar made some remarks about the recent attacks on Indian embassies and consulates that were carried out by supporters of the Khalistani movement.

It is the responsibility of the nation that is hosting the diplomatic mission to guarantee that the embassy, high commission, or consulate, as well as the premises they occupy, are respected. These commitments were not fulfilled, as Jaishankar explained.
