BJP leader Yashwant Sinha criticises Modi government on NSG fiasco

New Delhi: In what can bring in huge embarrassment for the Narendra Modi-led government, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yashwant Sinha on Sunday flayed the Centre for the fiasco on National Suppliers Group (NSG) membership in Seoul.

Speaking to a news channel, the BJP leader said, “"India has shown so much keenness and desperation in getting NSG membership, it is not required. We are comfortable outside NSG. If we become members of NSG, we will have more loss. There will be no gains for us.”

In the wake of the recent Lashkar attack in Pampore that claimed lives of at least eight CRPF personnel, former union minister and senior Sinha alleged that India`s current policy with Pakistan was a complete failure and called on the BJP-led government to take action against the hostile neighbour or continue to face attacks like Pathankot and Pampore.

The former finance minister stated that the continuous assaults on the Indian defence, which has resulted in the deaths of several personnel, have given birth to a war-like situation between India and Pakistan.

Stating the time has come to teach Pakistan a lesson, Sinha said, "If they have nuclear weapons, so do we. For the government, I am under the category of brain dead as I do not even have the status to give an opinion. But I have continuously opposed this government`s policy towards Pakistan.
