In the wake of Canada denying visa to several serving and retired military personnel, BJP and JD(U) today accused the Government of following "a very weak" foreign policy.  

"We don't need any certificate from Canada for our armed forces but such incidents show that we are following a very weak foreign policy... Has India's foreign policy become so weak that a country like Canada is denying visa to top officials," BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here.  

He said that while India was fighting terrorism for the past several decades, the government was unable to present its case properly before the world.  

Earlier in the day, responding to a question by a reporter on the visa issue, JD(U) chief and NDA convenor Sharad Yadav said, "This kind of attitude by a country like Canada only shows that India has become subservient to such countries.  

"If the nation is strong then nobody can behave in such a manner with us. There is a need to strengthen India in front of the world," he said. PTI
