BJP leaders mocked for portraying Beijing airport as Noida


Several leaders of the ruling BJP in India have come under criticism from the Chinese media after they shared images of the Beijing Daxing International Airport as the model for the upcoming Jewar airport in Noida.

An employee of the CGTN, a state-affiliated media outlet in China, pointed out the matter from his Twitter handle as he shared the messages posted from multiple social media accounts of Indian leaders.

“Errr….Shocked to know that Indian government officials had to use photographs of China Beijing Daxing International Airport as proof of their ‘achievements of infrastructure’,” tweeted Shen Shiwei.

Union ministers Anurag Thakur, Prahlad Singh Patel, Arjun Ram Meghwal, and UP deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya were among those whose tweets were highlighted.

“Asia’s largest international airport in Noida will also bring in Rs 35,000 crore investment. Besides this, more than 1 lakh people will be given employment,” read Thakur’s tweet.

Shen Shiwei further responded to the BJP leaders in his Tweet saying: “Welcome to China’s Beijing Daxing International Airport, a mega project with a cost of US$ 17.47 billion”.

“Indian government’s fake news propaganda debunked”, he said.
