Johnson fully recovered from corona after effects?
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson invited strong criticism from members of the UK parliament after he termed the ongoing protests by Indian farmers as a matter between India and Pakistan.
During the question and answer hour in the UK parliament on 9 December, Johnson was responding to a question by MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi regarding the ongoing protests by farmers in India against laws passed by the Modi government.
Dhesi asked if Johnson would "convey to the Indian prime minister our heartfelt anxieties, our hopes for a speedy resolution to the current deadlock".
"Does he (Johnson) agree that everyone has a fundamental right to peaceful protest?" Dhesi asked.
"Our view is that [...] of course we have serious concerns about what is happening between India and Pakistan but these are preeminently matters for those two governments to settle and I know that he (Dhesi) appreciates that point," responded Johnson to disgust many.
Dhesi expressed his disappointment in a two-part tweet, saying "it might help if our PM actually knew what he was talking about".
"The usual Boris Johnson bluff and bluster heaps further embarrassment onto our nation. Absolutely clueless! So disappointed with his response" the MP added.
Responding to Dhesi's tweet, Sharon Hodgson MP said: "This is so embarrassing Tan! Does he really not know what you are referring to?"
Many other MPs were surprised that the PM responded with a rehearsed and unrelated answer about India and Pakistan.
MP Sultana said: "Is it too much to ask for a PM who knows the difference between Kashmir & Punjab?"
Emma Hardy MP was shocked and reminded “the PM used to be the Foreign Secretary”! 10/12/2020
