Jaishankar was called out by Jairam Ramesh, who said that he has formed new allegiances and is eager to demonstrate them.
A social media battle between the BJP and the Congress was begun by foreign minister Jaishankar's sharp response to the former chief minister of Karnataka and Congress leader Siddaramaiah's tweet regarding Sudan. Siddaramaiah tagged the PMO, the Home Minister's office, the MEA, and Karnataka Chief Minister Bommai in his tweet expressing concern over the condition of persons from Karnataka trapped in Sudan skirmishes.
In response, Jaishankar wrote that this shouldn't be politicized before the Karnataka election. Siddaramaiah claimed he singled out Jaishankar because of his position as minister of external affairs. Siddaramaiah responded to Jaishankar's expression of disgust by saying, "If you are busy being disgusted, please point us to the person who can help us bring our people back."
As this became a contentious issue, Congress national secretary Jairam Ramesh stated that Jaishankar's response to Siddramaiah's sincere appeal is "most appalling." This degree of nasty behavior from a man I've known for a very long time...who has chosen new allegiances and wants to demonstrate that in everything he says and does. In his past, I'm keeping quiet (smiley)," Jairam Ramesh wrote.
Tweets from Siddaramaiah
According to reports, 31 members of the Hakki Pikki clan from Karnataka are stranded in war-torn Sudan. I kindly request that @PMOIndia @narendramodi, @HMOIndia, @MEAIndia, and @BSBommai act right away to secure their safe return. In Sudan, the Hakki Pikkis have been abandoned for several days without food, and the government has not yet taken any action to bring them home.To safeguard the safety of Hakki Pikkis, the Indian government should initiate diplomatic negotiations right away and contact international organizations. It is equally regrettable to note that the ongoing civil war in Sudan has claimed the lives of one Indian and 60 other people. I send their families my sincere condolences and ask for peace in the area.
What is the conflict?
In advance of the Karnataka assembly election, BJP and Congress leaders intensified their attacks on one another on the matter. Jaishankar's response was not well received by Siddaramaiah either. "Since you are the Minister of External Affairs @DrSJaishankar, I have requested your assistance. Please direct us to the person who can assist us in bringing our people back if you are busy being appalled,” he tweeted.
Siddaramaih's rebuke by MEA @DrSJaishankar for his reckless politics serves as a reminder to every one of who Siddaramaiah - the politician - is. Fundamental Kannada interests cannot be compromised in the name of electoral success. This divide and conquer mentality has no place in the #NewIndia, according to Bengaluru MP Tejasvi Surya.
It is hardly surprising that the Pulwama incident was politicized by the former CM's employer.
