As per the CPI(M) Going to the ICJ “indicates the Govt’s diplomatic failure to resolve a sensitive issue.
CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury claimed that approaching International Court of Justice (ICJ) in alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case indicates Narendra Modi-led government’s “diplomatic failure”.
“Going to the ICJ indicates that there is Government’s diplomatic failure to resolve a sensitive issue. A bilateral matter is now being internationalised,” Yechury added in his series of tweets.
“From inviting Inter-Services Intelligence(ISI) to Pathankot,Punjab to going for a wedding in Nawaz Sharif family to the ICJ now, Modi’s Pakistan policy is marked only by its absence”,he stated.
He added that,”By setting this precedent, let’s hope government is able to handle it better, unlike its record of botching up things so far.”
