New Delhi: In the wake of Canada denying
visa to several serving and retired military personnel, BJP
and JD(U) on Thursday accused the Government of following "a very
weak" foreign policy.
"We don`t need any certificate from Canada for our armed
forces but such incidents show that we are following a very
weak foreign policy... Has India`s foreign policy become so
weak that a country like Canada is denying visa to top
officials," BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told
He said that while India was fighting terrorism for the
past several decades, the government was unable to present its
case properly before the world.
Earlier in the day, responding to a question by a
reporter on the visa issue, JD(U) chief and NDA convenor
Sharad Yadav said, "This kind of attitude by a country like
Canada only shows that India has become subservient to such
"If the nation is strong then nobody can behave in such a
manner with us. There is a need to strengthen India in front
of the world," he said.
