Rahul Gandhi 'thanks' Swaraj for recognising Congress govts' legacy of setting up IITs, IIMs

Rahul Gandhi on Sunday thanked External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for recognising Congress governments' vision during her address at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

"Sushma ji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments' great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs," tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

Other party leaders also welcomed Swaraj's address and praised her for replying to 'those who ask what happened in the last 70 years'.

"Befitting reply to those who ask what happened in last 70 years. Sushma Swaraj mirrored the yeoman's progress made by India under Congress rule, making 'inclusive growth & progress' as India's mantra," said Surjewala in a series of tweets.

The Congress leader further said, "It was 'time to move words into action as Pakistan still receives 743 million dollars annual US aid, collaborates with China on CPEC and buys arms from Russia."

On Saturday, Sushma ripped apart Pakistan at UNGA in New York stating that "India has risen despite being the principal destination of Pakistan's nefarious export of terrorism.

Swaraj also asked Pakistani leaders to introspect as to why India is recognised as a global IT superpower while the neighbour is infamous as the "pre-eminent export factory for terror".

She also slammed Pakistan for creating terror groups like LeT, JeM, Hizbul Mujahideen and the Haqqani Network.

In her address, Swaraj spoke on issues like terrorism, climate change, maritime and cyber security, UN Security Council reforms, poverty and unemployment.
