Rahul Gandhi asks Modi to discuss CPEC with Xi


New Delhi, April 27 (TNS): India’s main opposition party Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to China as the one having “no agenda”, but reminded him to raise the Doklam standoff with Chinese troops last year and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor with the leadership there.

Gandhi mocked Modi, saying “you look tense” on the visit.

However extending his party’s support, he told the prime minister that India wants to hear him talk about these crucial issues – Doklam and CPEC – with China.

“Dear prime minister, Saw the live TV feed of your “No Agenda” China visit.

You look tense! A quick reminder: 1. DOKLAM 2. China Pakistan Economic Corridor which is against Indian interests.

India wants to hear you talk about these crucial issues. You have our support,” Gandhi said on Twitter.

Indian Prime Minister Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday began talks at an unprecedented two-day informal summit in Wuhan city in central China.

During the visit, the two leaders will have a series of one-on-one conversations.
