New Delhi: The BJP government in Delhi has sent a strong message to China by allowing its MPs to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.
The BJP MPs Meenakshi Lekhi and Rahul Kaswan virtually attended the ceremony and congratulated her on behalf of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government.
Observers said this is being seen as a subtle yet strong message to China.
Tsai won in a landslide last year after the repression of pro-democracy protests in the semi-autonomous region of Hong Kong.
Beijing has cut off ties with Tsai’s government after she refused to recognize the island as a part of China.
