In an exclusive interview, Doval talks about what the world can learn from India
The Congress still behaves as if it can lead when it clearly can’t. It is no better than a regional party.

Is [Narendra] Modi still bleating, “Koi aaya nahin….” (nobody has come) even after the Chinese have occupied 4,067sqkm of Ladakh? I am approaching the Supreme Court under Article 19 of the Constitution to get the Modi government to disclose the truth about Modi’s surrender to China.
Make America great again. When exactly was that? Was it when there was slavery? Was it before women had the right to vote? Was it before the civil rights movement? Which is the American greatness to which we must return?
Rahul Gandhi is a good friend. We have worked together. I was elected thrice when Congress alliance was in power. I have good relations with Rahul, but he should tread carefully. He will not have any political gains by attacking PM Modi.
People think I am very diplomatic and non-confrontational. But I say what I have to say in a way that does not hurt somebody or make them feel like vermin. I do not want to hurt anybody, and I want to hear them out…. I have no career countdowns, but I have dreams, subconscious checklists.
