Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Friday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “flaunting” his friendship with US President Donald Trump over his remark that ”India sent out filthy air”.
Mr Sibal said the jibe was the result of the Howdy Modi event held in Texas in 2019.
“Trump: Fruits of Friendship: Questions India’s COVID-19 death count. Says India sends dirt up into the air India “air is filthy”. Called India “tariff king”. The result of “Howdy Modi”,” Mr Sibal tweeted.
Another party leader, Anand Sharma, said, “President Donald Trump has insulted “Namaste India” and exposed his lack of knowledge on climate change and the Paris Agreement.”
“A fact check would have told him that the US is the largest polluter historically and its per capita green-house gas emissions are six times India’s “filthy air”,” the former External Affairs minister said.
