Senior Congress leader and former Karnataka chief minister Veerappa Moily today claimed Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed on the foreign diplomacy front though he had been touring countries frequently.

Moily, a former union minister, also claimed BJP-led governments in different states were lagging behind on the development front. He commended the Siddaramaiah government in Karnataka for "implementing development programmes". Moily, who is the chairman of ...
