New Delhi: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday said the Government of India must listen to messages of Rahul Gandhi regarding the Chinese aggression as he credited the late Indira Gandhi, India’s third Prime Minister, for neutralizing China through her Moscow outreach.

Earlier, Gandhi, in his speech, alleged that the present dispensation has defied the strategic goal of India’s foreign policy of keeping China and Pakistan separate and has brought both countries together.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Tharoor said, “We (Congress) are saying that the country has been weakened in both its domestic unity and strength and in its external national security. That, I think, is a very powerful and important message.”
