Arun Jaitley hitting back at the Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday,said that First Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was the Original Sinner who favoured China the permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council.
Jaitley’s remarks comes after Congress chief Rahul Gandhi termed Prime Minister as weak and he is sacred of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
He tweeted after China again blocks UN resolution to designate jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar as a Global terrorist putting as technical hold on a proposal to ban him following the Pulwama terror attack.
This is the fourth time that China blocked the resolution at the UN Security Council to ban terror group chief.
In a series of tweets Arun Jaitley said , “The original mistake, both on Kashmir and China, was committed by the same person.”
Arun Jaitley said while quoting Nehru’s letter to Chief Ministers on August 2 1955.
In a tweet he said, “Pt. Nehru’s infamous letter to Chief Ministers’ dated August 2, 1955 states “Informally, suggestions have been made by the United States that China should be taken into the United Nations but not in the Security Council, & that India should take her place in the Security Council.
“..We cannot, of course, accept this as it means falling out with China and it would be very unfair for a great country like China not to be in the Security Council.”
“Will the Congress President tell us who the original sinner was?,” jaitley asked Congress President Rahul Gandhi
The proposal to designate JeM Chief Masood Azhar under the 1267 Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UNSC was moved by France, the UK and the US on February 27, days after a suicide bomber of the Jaish-e-Mohammed killed 40 CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.
