Shashi Tharoor, Senior Congress leader and three-time Lok Sabha MP from from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, has strongly objected to the retaliation threat by US President Donald Trump on India if it does not allow the export of drug Hydroxychloroquine .

Reacting to Trump, Tharoor, a former UN Diplomat and former MoS HRD and External Affairs tweeted, “Never in my decades of experience in world affairs have I heard a Head of State or Govt openly threatening another like this. What makes Indian hydroxychloroquine “our supply”, Mr President? It only becomes your supply when India decides to sell it to you. @USAndIndia.”

The US President had threatened India with retaliation if the exports were not allowed to America. In a press briefing, he said that when he spoke with PM Modi on the phone over the weekend.

“I’d appreciate if he allows our supplies to come out. If he doesn’t allow it to come out it would be okay but of course there would be retaliation, why wouldn’t there be?” He also once alleged that “for many years they’ve (India) taken advantage of US on trade” but added that “India does very well with the United States.”
