PM Modi surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression: Rahul Gandhi


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday again criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his statement that no one has entered the country’s territory nor has any posts been captured. He said Modi has “surrendered” Indian territory to Chinese aggression.

Earlier in a statement on the all-party meeting called by Modi on Friday to discuss the India-China border situation, Modi had said, “Neither is anyone inside our territory nor is any of our post captured.”

Tagging PM’s remarks with his tweet, Gandhi said, “PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression.” “If the land was Chinese: 1. Why were our soldiers killed? 2. Where were they killed?” Gandhi said.

Modi’s statement comes amidst reports that the Chinese military has transgressed into the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. Twenty Indian Army personnel, including a colonel, were killed in a clash with Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh.

Union home minister Amit Shah posted a video of a father of a soldier, who was injured in Galwan face-off, and hit out at the Congress leader, accusing him of indulging in ‘petty politics’.

“A brave armyman’s father speaks and he has a very clear message for Mr. Rahul Gandhi. At a time when the entire nation is united, Mr. Rahul Gandhi should also rise above petty politics and stand in solidarity with national interest,” Shah wrote in a tweet.

Earlier at the all party meeting, Congress president Sonia Gandhi had questioned the government’s handling of the situation asking if there was any intelligence failure, and seeking assurance that China will ‘revert’ to its original position.

Rahul Gandhi had earlier accused senior ministers in the government of ‘lying’ to protect the prime minister and that the Centre was ‘fast asleep’ while martyred jawans paid the price in Ladakh.
