New Delhi: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi continues to further exposes his hypocrisy as he demands that the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi disclose details of the donors in PM-Cares fund but refuses to disclose details of the Congress – Communist Party of China (CPC) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in Beijing on August 7, 2008 in the presence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the current President of China Xi Jinping.

Taking to social media Twitter, Rahul Gandhi, stated, “Why is PM so scared of disclosing the names of those who donated money to him for PM Cares? Everyone knows Chinese companies Huawei, Xiaomi, TikTok and One Plus gave money. Why doesn’t he share the details?,’ the former AICC President posted on micro-blogging site Twitter. “

Rahul Gandhi also posted a news report on his official Twitter handle, which said that members of the ruling BJP on Friday stalled a proposal at the meeting of the PAC to examine the government’s handling of the Coronavirus crisis. The report said that BJP, which enjoys a majority in PAC, blocked a proposal by PAC Chairman Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury to select the PM CARES Fund for examination, saying that it’s funding was not sanctioned by Parliament and therefore, it cannot be taken up by the committee.

Interestingly Rahul Gandhi refuses to make public the MoU signed with China. Sonia Gandhi is an interview with the Xinhua New Agency in 2011 stated, “Currently, India and China are engaged in building a strategic and cooperative partnership and it is significant that China has already emerged as India’s largest trading partner. The future beckons us to build what has the potential to become one of the foremost and most substantive relationships of the 21st century and one that is of lasting benefit for the people of both our countries.Call for stepping up exchanges among younger leadership of Congress and Communist Party of China to enhance mutual understanding. Those areas could include infrastructure building, inclusive growth, employment generation and environment protection, among other things.”

Recalling her visits to China in 2007 and 2008 as Congress President, she said the Indian National Congress, and CPC signed a MoU in 2008. One of the key components of MoU was a shared commitment to strengthen exchanges amongst the younger leadership in the two parties. More visits and exchanges, particularly among the youth wings of the two parties and between students of the two countries, are extremely important. That’s to ensure that the generation of young leaders in China and India know and understand each other well, she said, thus deepening the relationship between the two parties, the two peoples and the two countries.

She further asserted, “I believe that we should foster greater cultural and social linkages, especially among the youth, even as we promote trade, investment at the national levels, and international cooperation on multilateral issues of importance to both countries and on which we can adopt a common approach.”
