“MEA never sleeps”: S. Jaishankar strikes back at allegations by Congress’s Jairam Ramesh of MEA being inactive

In the last 24 hours, India reported 3,92,488 new COVID-19 cases and 3,07,865 patients got discharge, while 3689 people died of this deadly virus.

On Sunday, May 2, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar reacted to allegations raised by Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member Jairam Ramesh on the working of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for not helping and providing support to Embassy of Philippines.

S. Jaishankar tweeted– “MEA checked with the Philippines Embassy. This was an unsolicited supply as they had no Covid cases. Clearly for cheap publicity by you know who. Giving away cylinders like this when there are people in desperate need of oxygen is simply appalling.”

He further added and said about Ministry of External Affairs– “Jairamji, MEA never sleeps; our people know across the world. MEA also never fakes; we know who does.”

Earlier on May 2, Congress’s Jairam Ramesh tweeted, “While I thank @IYC for its stellar efforts, as an Indian citizen I’m stunned that the youth wing of the opposition party is attending to SOS calls from foreign embassies. Is the MEA sleeping @DrSJaishankar,” while quoting the tweet shared by National President of Youth Wing of Indian National Congress, Srinivas B V.
