Yashwant Sinha flays overnment on NSG fiasco

Senior BJP leader and former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha on Sun­day flayed the Narendra Modi government for the fiasco on NSG member­ship in Seoul.

“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,” he told a TV channel.

“I say this strongly that India should not accept the NSG membership. We should not go there as an applicant,” said Sinha, who was Exter­nal Affairs Minister in the Atal Behari Vajpayee government.

“Whether those sitting in the government un­derstand this (issue) or not, I do not know,” he said.

Sinha had earlier also criticised the Modi gov­ernment’s functioning, including its foreign poli­cy, and the NDA regime’s handling of relations with Pakistan.
