New Delhi [India], Aug.3 (ANI): The Bharatiya Jananta Party (BJP) on Thursday asserted that all the countries across the globe are with India because our Indian policy is based on righteousness. Speaking to ANI here, BJP leader Sudesh Verma said, "Indian diplomacy has been successful in the sense that all the countries across the globe are with India because Indian policy is based on righteousness." Verma also said that the time for India in the global order has arrived. Reiterating Sushma Swaraj's take on the issue of boycott of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the BJP leader said, "Kashmir is an integral part of India inclusive of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)". Hailing Swaraj's statements in Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar said the former's speech speaks for itself. Earlier in the day, Swaraj lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi on successful bilateral relation with countries across the world saying that the latter has the guts to challenge US President Donald Trump. "Narendra Modi has earned respect for the country. He has brought glory to India. Despite Trump's allegations on India taking bribe, Prime Minister Modi has the guts to stand against Trump and the US. The world sees India differently now. We have improved ties with our neighbours," Swaraj said while speaking in Rajya Sabha. Speaking on the issue of boycott of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), she said Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is an integral part of India. "We boycotted CPEC because it was going through PoK. PoK is an integral part of India. It is a matter of India's sovereignty," Swaraj said. (ANI)
