In a fiery and impassioned speech, the renowned academic and intellectual, Professor Pankaj Choudhary has exposed the treacherous agenda of Rahul Gandhi, who is making baseless and dangerous allegations against the Indian government with the backing of China.
Professor Pankaj Choudhary shed light on the rich historical and cultural heritage of ancient India. He emphasised that India has been the cradle of democracy since time immemorial, with democratic ideals ingrained in our ancient texts such as the Vedas and the Mahabharata. The concepts of sabhas (assemblies) and samitis (councils) showcased the democratic ethos that has been an integral part of our cultural fabric. This profound legacy serves as a reminder that democracy is not just a system for us, but a deeply ingrained culture, idea, and tradition. Professor Choudhary's mention of ancient India highlights the deep-rooted democratic values that continue to shape and inspire our nation today.
During his speech, Professor Choudhary also touched upon the alarming nexus between Rahul Gandhi and the authoritarian regime of China, a country notorious for its oppressive policies, human rights abuses, and expansionist agenda. It has become increasingly clear that Mr Gandhi's recent visit to the United States was not merely an innocent diplomatic mission but a calculated move to undermine India's interests and sow seeds of discord with the support of our adversaries.
China, under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, has displayed a blatant disregard for international norms and territorial integrity. By aligning himself with this repressive regime, Rahul Gandhi has shown a shocking lack of loyalty to his own country and a willingness to compromise our national security for personal gain. It is an affront to the values of democracy and freedom that India upholds.
The timing of Mr Gandhi's visit to Stanford University, just before the crucial visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States of America, cannot be dismissed as a mere coincidence. It is a deliberate attempt to strain the bilateral relations between India and the United States, a relationship that holds immense strategic importance for both nations. Mr Gandhi's actions only serve to embolden our adversaries and jeopardise the progress and stability that has been achieved under Prime Minister Modi's visionary leadership.
Professor Choudhary emphasised the need for the media and the public to critically examine Rahul Gandhi's claims and motivations. His secret meetings with Chinese officials during a period of heightened border tensions between India and China raise serious questions about his loyalties and the extent of his collaboration with our adversaries. The Indian people deserve transparency and accountability from their leaders, particularly when it comes to matters of national security.
Furthermore, Rahul Gandhi's attempts to undermine the transformative reforms initiated by the Indian government, such as the increase in the FDI limit and the corporatisation of the Ordnance Factory Board, are indicative of his disconnect from the aspirations and welfare of the Indian people. These reforms are aimed at strengthening India's defence capabilities, boosting domestic production, and making our nation self-reliant. Mr Gandhi's opposition to these critical initiatives further highlights his lack of understanding and vision for the progress of our great nation.
Professor Choudhary concluded his address by encouraging the attendees to make every possible effort to protect the social & cultural fabric of India and move ahead with a united approach & mindset as the world has its eyes on India's growth and growing global presence.
Professor Choudhary is on a multi-state visit to the United States of America.
