New Delhi: Amid standoff between two nations, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has met Chinese ambassador to India, the party has reportedly confirmed.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala told media it was a normal courtesy call.
He had earlier said that the news on the alleged meeting between Gandhi and Chinese ambassador was ‘fake’.
He had earlier tweeted: “A wanting to be ‘Bhakt’ channel will not question 3 Union Ministers visiting China or PM’s bonhomie & praise at G20 yet run fake news!”
He said: “Before MEA & IB sources plant news with ‘Bhakts’, they should reverify that we still have diplomatic relations with all our neighbours.2/n.”
The Congress leader also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his recent meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Germany.
“Ohh! And ‘Bhakts’ are precluded from questioning this doublespeak too. We forget-two BJP mouthpieces & sundry wannabe’s get a script!,” he said.
