India’s interest is the priority: Dr. S. Jaishankar

On the Occasion, Shri. S. Jai Shankar, Honourable Minister   for External Affairs, in conversation with  Shri. Tejasvi Surya,  Honourable  Member of Parliament,  Bangalore  South constituency,  spoke that The present  India  is self confident, aware of itself and its past, and making an impact on the world arena. It all started in 2014 and can lead India to become Vishwa guru during this Amruthkal period. Nonetheless, this newly assertive India is standing up for itself, making India’s interest is the priority than the ideology or one’s principle. While responding to the student query, Dr. Jaishankar said that the inauguration of Ram Mandir is exciting for other countries also because there is a traditional-cultural connection between these countries. For another question, Dr. S. Jaishankar asserted that India needs to stand on ground to counter the external pressure. This stand on is, based on its principles of respect than the fear of dominating the others.  He said that time is not far for India to become the third country in economy in the world.
