the Prime Minister himself was carrying out a parallel negotiation with the French,”
he said.

is about your future. And here it is absolutely clear that Modi has stolen Rs
30,000 crore of your money and given it to his friend (an Indian
industrialist).”

any officers who are not part of Indian Negotiating Team may refrain from

“undermines our negotiating position seriously”.
