New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday thanked External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for “recognising” his party’s efforts in setting up IITs and IIMs during her speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday where the latter spoke about combating terrorism while hitting out at Pakistan.

“Sushma ji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments’ great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Lashing out at Pakistan at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday, Swaraj said Pakistan is known to the world as “a terrorist state”.

Raising the issue of terrorism at UNGA, Swaraj criticised Pakistan for turning their country into a hub of terrorism.

During her address on Saturday, Swaraj said: “Both India and Pakistan became Independent in 1947. While India is known as an IT superpower, the world knows Pakistan as the terrorist state in the world.”

Swaraj even reasoned out for such a difference in perception towards India and Pakistan. She said: “There have been multiple governments in India since Independence, but all worked towards the development of the country unlike Pakistan.”

With an attempt to unmask Pakistan at the international stage, Swaraj vehemently attacked the neighbouring country, saying: “While we (India) made Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Management (IIM), All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Pakistan created Jaish-e- Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hizb-ul-Mujahideen.”

“While India made scholars, scientists, doctors, Pakistan created jihadis” she added.

“We prepared an agenda for 2015-2030 two years ago. Now we need to achieve our goals if we have to come out of these crises,” she said.

“We all need to take bold decisions” the external affairs minister added.
