'These are bad habits...maintain Maryada': EAM Jaishankar reacts to foreign remarks over Kejriwal's arrest

PTC News Desk: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar used the term "Maryada" to refer to US, German, and UN envoys making political remarks about Indian politics following Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's arrest, stating that we are sovereign countries and should not interfere in each other's internal affairs.

At a press conference in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, on Tuesday, EAM Jaishankar highlighted that these are old and bad habits.


"...These are old habits. These are bad habits...The word I use is 'Maryada' among countries, we are sovereign countries. We should not be interfering in each other's internal affairs. We should not be passing comments about each other's politics," Jaishankar said.

He added that they have informed the diplomats of these nations that India strongly opposes this.

"Because once, if this becomes a rule, where do you stop? So we have been, in the cases where it has happened, we have told the diplomats of that country very clearly that we take very strong objection to it," the foreign minister said, adding that other countries do not hold any right to comment on another country's politics.

"We think this is not a good practice. And we would sincerely urge all countries in the world to say that you please, by all means, you can have your views about the world. But no country has the right to comment on another country's politics, especially in situations like this."

The Enforcement Directorate arrested Kejriwal for alleged money laundering in connection with the Delhi excise policy case.
