On the subject of acquiring Russian oil, Jaishankar claimed that PM Modi had given the directive to put locals’ interests first.

S Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs, asserted that the days of vote-bank politics dominating international policies are over, and that India’s current position toward Israel is proof of this. “The dispute between Israel and Palestine has existed for a very long time. We chose not to strengthen our connections with Israel for a number of political reasons. We put limits on ourselves. The first Indian prime minister to visit Israel was PM Modi. Everyone in the nation is aware that the connections may have benefited us. However, your international policies also change as you leave vote-bank politics. The era when vote-bank politics predominated the national interest is long gone, according to Jaishankar.

Jaishankar was giving a speech at the Gujarati book The India Way: Strategies for an Uncertain World’s launch ceremony. At the event, he answered a lot of audience questions.

“Population control by force is dangerous”

In reference to India’s population, Jaishankar claimed that the country’s population growth rate is rapidly declining due to factors such as social awareness, education, and others. “As time goes on, our families are getting smaller for each of us individually. It belongs to evolution. Forced population control can have dangerous repercussions. You can observe that certain nations’ gender balance is off. That is not in any society’s best interests. I believe and observe that democracy has flaws, and occasionally, people become irritated with it. However, despite all of its challenges, democracy is still preferable to anarchy. And democratic principles must guide any response to problems like population control. Today, those who coerced it regret doing so “added Jaishankar.

“When PM Modi travels overseas”

Jaishankar claimed that whenever PM Modi travels abroad, he inspects all of the country’s new infrastructure to check how it is operating. “He personally rode the bullet train, visited a convention centre, saw how South Korea was cleaning its filthy river, and toured the Berlin train station. While in Singapore, he had the concept for a smart city. The government now has a different way of thinking. We are receptive to positive developments occurring in other nations “said Jaishankar.

According to Jaishankar, PM Modi instructed him to purchase Russian oil.

According to Jaishankar, who was speaking about India’s choice to keep purchasing oil from Russia, few people are aware of the country’s economic position. “More people were interested in the import of oil than in foreign policy. The directive from PM Modi was to put the needs of our people first “added Jaishankar.
