Cong’s swipe at PM Modi: “Salvage Diminished International Image” while traveling to Italy for the G7


Ahead of his first overseas trip of his third term, the Congress on Thursday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi by claiming that he is traveling to Italy to “salvage his diminished international image” at the G7 Summit.

The G7 Summit—which brings together the heads of state of the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Japan—began in the late 1970s, according to Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh.

He also mentioned Russia’s membership from 1997 to 2014.

According to Ramesh, invitations to G7 summits have been extended to South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, India, and China since 2003.

According to him, the world was first introduced to the renowned Singh-Merkel formula for guaranteeing equality in international climate change negotiations at the most renowned G7 Summit, which took place in June 2007 at Helligendamm in Germany.

“It is still talked about. Dr. Manmohan Singh and German Chancellor Angela Merkel created history. Dr. Manmohan Singh had emerged as the voice of the Global South through substance and not through hollow self-boasts,” Ramesh said.

“Of course it is too much to expect from our ‘one-third’ Pradhan Mantri to know or acknowledge this history as he flies to Italy today to salvage his diminished international image at this year’s Summit,” the Congress general secretary said.

Modi will fly to Italy on Thursday to attend an outreach event regarding the June 14 summit, escorted by a high-level group. This will be his first travel overseas following his third term as prime minister.

The G7 summit, which is scheduled to take place from June 13 to 15, in the opulent resort town of Borgo Egnazia in the Apulia province of Italy, is anticipated to be dominated by the ongoing hostilities in Gaza and Ukraine.
