Krishna`s faux pas bound to happen: BJP

New Delhi: BJP on Saturday said the faux pas by
External Affairs Minister S M Krishna at the UN Security
Council was bound to happen as the country had leaders who
"read speeches rather than deliver them."
"This is bound to happen when we have people who read
speeches rather then deliver them," BJP spokesperson Nirmala
Sitharaman said here.
She claimed that due to the gaffe, India stood
embarrassed at an international forum.
"Today, the level of incompetence has reached to its
optimum," she said.
Krishna was caught in a public gaffe when he
inadvertently read out the speech of the Portuguese Minister
at a UN Security Council meeting here but rectified the error
after an Indian official drew his attention.
Speaking at the United Nations Security Council at a
debate on security and development yesterday, Krishna read out
the wrong speech for about three minutes before being
corrected by India`s envoy to the UN Hardeep Singh Puri.
