China, Switzerland oppose India's bid for NSG membership; Arvind Kejriwal seeks explanation from PM Narendra Modi

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi after China and Switzerland opposed India's bid for Nuclear Suppliers' Group (NSG) membership in Seoul meet.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief accused PM Modi of failing foreign policy. He sought an explanation from the Prime Minister on the official foreign tours.

Besides, Kejriwal, other AAP leaders too jumped in to attack PM Modi.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said said shouldn't the PM be questioned on why he failed in his foreign policy.

Another AAP leader Ashish Khaitan said, “Modi ji will go down in history as the worst Indian Prime Minister ever.”

In a major blow to India, China today said that the NSG will not discuss its membership bid into the elite group, adding that New Delhi will first have to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), as it is a must and a major criteria set up by the NSG.

Speaking to ANI, Director-General of the Arms Control Department of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China Wang Qun asserted that India's membership has 'never ever' been on the agenda of the NSG and that there is no such agenda item for the two-day plenary, adding that there is no point of China opposing or supporting India as well as the membership of other countries.
