"Mr Modi has destroyed the web of relationships that the Congress built and nurtured over several decades," Gandhi alleged.
"Living in a neighbourhood with no friends is dangerous," the former Congress chief added.
The Congress has been critical of the Modi government's foreign policy, alleging that ties with neighbours have been weakened. The government has denied the charge and said India's ties have deepened with several countries and its position has strengthened globally.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi called out PM Modi for 'minimum government' and 'maximum privatisation.' He questioned the government's silence on the loss of crores of jobs and the falling GDP in the twitter post.
