Congress leader Rahul Gandhi came under fresh fire on Monday from Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for attacking Indian government policies towards China. She said he should be ashamed of his comments. On Monday, Sitharaman was addressing reporters in Mumbai. “He (Rahul Gandhi) should be ashamed while taunting the government of India on the China issue. He is briefed by the Chinese Ambassador but he doesn’t listen to what our External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar says on the topic,” she said in an ANI report.

Sitharaman’s statement came weeks after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s response in which he referred to Rahul Gandhi’s meeting with the Chinese ambassador to India during the Doklam crisis. The Congress leader had attacked the government, suggesting that new territory had been lost to China’s salami slicing.

“I would have offered to take classes on China from Rahul Gandhi but I discovered he was taking classes on China from the Chinese ambassador,” Jaishankar had said while responding to the Congress leader’s criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s handling of relations with China.

Further hitting out at Congress, Sitharaman said, “Whenever the External Affairs Minister speaks in the parliament on this issue, the leaders of the Congress party either walk out or shout in their loudest voices to disrupt the EAM’s speech. “Whenever he (EAM) speaks in parliament on this issue, the Congress leaders either walk out or shout in their loudest voices to disrupt EAM’s speech,” she said.
