New Delhi [India], March 14 (ANI): A day after China blocked a proposal at the United Nations Security Council to declare JeM chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said "weak" Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "scared" of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Taking to Twitter, Gandhi wrote, "Weak Modi is scared of Xi. Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India."For the fourth time in the last ten years, China on Wednesday blocked a proposal by the US, the UK and France, among others, to enlist Pakistan-based Azhar as a global terrorist.

Later addressing a fisherman parliament in Thrissur in Kerala, he accused the Prime Minister of not doing enough for the uplift of the poor, fishermen, farmers and small businessmen.

"Our Prime Minister is not concerned about the welfare of the poor, fishermen, farmers and small businessmen. He is only concerned about businessmen like Mehul Choksy, Nirav Modi and others. His philosophy is different from mine. I am here to uplift the poor and other weaker sections of the society but the Prime Minister only wants to help crony capitalists," he said.

Gandhi also said if voted to power, the Congress party will set up a central ministry for fishermen.

"I want to give you your own amplifier so that when you feel something, your voice is immediately heard in Delhi. In my view, there is only one amplifier that will solve your problem, that is your own ministry in Delhi," the Congress president said when asked about the measures his party will take to protect fishermen from the Sri Lankan Navy.
