New Delhi: 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.
