Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday taunted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “brand of diplomacy” after China again blocked the UNSC resolution designating JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist saying the PM is scared of his Chinese counterpart.

“Weak Modi is scared of Xi. Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India. NaMo’s China Diplomacy: 1. Swing with Xi in Gujarat 2. Hug Xi in Delhi 3. Bow to Xi in China,” Gandhi tweeted accusing the PM of failed outreaches to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Other Congress leaders, too, joined Gandhi in questioning the PM after China’s continuing blockade of India’s move at the UNSC.

Former minister Manish Tewari took a swipe at the PM saying, “This is some muscular diplomacy.”

Tewari tweeted “-@narendramodi rocked on a swing with President Xi, @narendramodi withdrew Indian forces first in Doklam, @narendramodi travelled to Wuhan to release new spirits-Wuhan spirit & China rebuffs is on Massod Azhar third time 2016, 2017 & 2019. Some Muscular Diplomacy ain’t it Timothy!”

Azhar’s JeM recently claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terror attacked leading to the Indian Air Force attacking and destroying its terror bases in Pakistan’s Balakot in unprecedented cross-border strikes, the first after 1971.

The Pulwama attack had killed 40 CRPF jawans marking a shift in the Indian policy of strategic restraint in the face of Pakistan-sponsored terror.
