India summons UK envoy over Parliament debate on farm stir

Mar 09, 2021 20:32 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The ministry of external affairs on Tuesday summoned the British High Commissioner and conveyed its strong objection to British parliamentarians debating farm reforms. In a press statement, the ministry said that foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla made it clear that the discussion at UK Parliament represented a gross interference in the politics of another country. Terming this as "vote bank politics", Shringla also highlighted that there was a misrepresentation of events. A group of British MPs debated "use of force" in farmers protest in India drawing flak from the High Commission of India in London.
