Slamming both the Congress and the Left, the BJP on Tuesday claimed “not just the treacherous Left”, but the Congress also “played ball” with China to “impede the Indo-US nuclear deal in 2007”

It is not just the treacherous Left that played ball with China to impede the Indo-US deal.

It was also the time (2007) when Sonia Gandhi seemed to have withdrawn her support to Dr MMS on the crucial deal.

Could it be a coincidence that CCP was funding the RGF at the same time?

“It is not just the treacherous Left that played ball with China to impede the Indo-US deal.

“It was also the time (2007) when Sonia Gandhi seemed to have withdrawn her support to Dr MMS on the crucial deal.

“Could it be a coincidence that CCP was funding the RGF at the same time?” said BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya taking to the social media following reports that China “used its close connections” with Left parties in India to “build domestic opposition” to the Indo-US nuclear deal between 2007 and 2008.

This alleged incident is being quoted as the “first instance for China to operate politically in Indian domestic politics”.

The revelation is a part of former foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale’s book, ‘The Long Game: How the Chinese Negotiate with India’.
