Paddy Minister Narendra Modi spoke the slogan ‘Abki Bar, Trump Sarkar’ in a speech during the Howdy Modi event last week. Foreign Minister Jaishankar has given clarification after the dispute over it. During a conversation with reporters in Washington on Monday, Jaishankar said that by saying ‘this time, the Trump government’, Prime Minister Modi did not support anyone for the US election, but remembered the 2016 presidential election campaign of Trump. During that time this slogan became popular among the Indian community in America.
When a reporter asked Jaishankar if the Prime Minister supported Trump for the 2020 US election, he denied it and said not at all. India does not favor anyone in American politics and elections. But if you listen to the Prime Minister carefully, he said – “We Indians feel attached to the slogan of Trump’s election campaign ‘Abki Bar, Trump Government’. That is, Modi Ji was just remembering the old times. ”
Congress also opposed Modi’s statement
After the Howdy Modi program, Congress also accused Modi of speaking to support Trump. Congress leader Anand Sharma had said that this violates foreign policy. Our country never got involved in domestic elections and politics of any country. It is also a violation of the autonomous democracy of both countries.
What did Modi say?
The Prime Minister had praised the US President during the Howdy Modi event and said – “Trump has reinvigorated the American economy. They have given a lot to America. Friends! We feel attached to the slogan ‘Abki Bar, Trump Sarkar’ as India’s candidate for President Trump. He also celebrated Diwali among Indians. When I first met him, he said that India’s true friend is sitting in the White House. Your presence here today is a witness to this. ”
