Putting forward the tone on the visit of US President Donald Trump, the Congress today claimed that India has been reduced to a lowly buyer, rather than being a strategic partner.
"India has been reduced to a lowly buyer state from a strategic Partner. India has no role in Afghan Peace Process," said former Union Minister Manish Tewari.
The grand old party stated that the olny gainers from Donald Trump’s visit are arms manufacturers.
"Only gainers of Trump 36-hour Tamasha commencing at noon today are going to be Boeing's, Lockheed Martin's, General Atomics and other merchants of death," Mr Tewari tweeted.
The Congress party stated that in three years as US President, Donald Trump has gutted the Global Multilateral order, walked out of Trans Pacific Partnership (TTP), virtually torpedoed NATO, discredited US’s closest allies, set free suppressed bigoted and racist propensities in America. He promotes deals over vision.
Further commenting on US-India ties, "Pak Special Relationship is back on track. Quad China except for an airy fairy Blue Dot network there is nothing to counter BRI in substantive terms. US-Iran Tensions hurt Indian Oil Refineries the most. Quad is a complete non-starter. India falls in between the cracks of,” Tewari said.
In an additional tweet, Tewari wrote, "1/4 Cent-Com qua Paf-Com. Visit is a fluff. A Specticalization of Diplomacy designed to detract from the fact that the NDA/BJP Govt has failed to secure India's interest and the last big Idea in the relationship was in 2005 - India-US Nuclear Deal that smashed Nuclear apartheid.
