Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Monday slammed Pakistan over its actions in the past few days and said that the neighbouring country should better look after its own economy rather than worrying about India's successes and failures.
"We both got independence together and they separated after fighting with us. They should not worry about the success or failure of our Chandrayaan-2 mission, we have reached the moon but they are still stuck with exporting donkeys," Singh told ANI here.
He further said that the denial of airspace to President Ram Nath Kovind's flight by Pakistan was a very bad decision and it would earn the neighbours further ridicule from the international community.
"This is a very hurtful behaviour by the neighbouring country, it is symbolic of their mean behaviour. They went to the United Nations with the differences they had with us over the Kashmir issue and were sent back empty-handed. Nothing good will come out of this move for them," he said.
Further attacking Pakistan's move, he said if they wanted to compete with us, they should compete in fields like technology and overall development. "If you want to compete with India, compete in the field of technological advancement. Fight to end poverty, hunger and other factors which will send a message that they are trying to improve their status. For them picking a fight with us would be like creating a Frankenstein monster situation," Singh said.
