New Delhi: A day after Pakistan downgraded its bilateral ties with India and expelled Indian High Commissioner to Islamabad, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that no country should get "such a neighbour".

‘Bhagwaan aisa padosi kisi ko na de’: Rajnath Singhs jibe at Imran government

Speaking at an event, Rajnath said "Sabse badi aashanka toh hume hamare padosi ke bare mein rehti hai. Samasya yeh hai, aap dost badal sakte hain magar padosi ka chunav aapke haath mein nahi hota hai. Aur jaisa padosi hamare bagal mein baitha hai, paramatma kare ki aisa padosi kisi ko na mile (We are always doubtful about our neighbour and its intentions. The problem is, one can change his friends but not neighbours. And the kind of neighbour we have, we pray to God that no one should get such a neighbour).''
