Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said patriotic Ladakhis are raising their voice against Chinese intrusion and asked the government to listen to them, asserting that ignoring their warning will cost India dearly.
Rahul Gandhi also shared a media report which showed some Ladakhis alleging that the Chinese have been occupying Indian territory in Ladakh.
“Patriotic Ladakhis are raising their voice against Chinese intrusion. They are screaming a warning. Ignoring their warning will cost India dearly,” the former Congress president tweeted.
“For India’s sake, please listen to them,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Rahul Gandhi has been attacking the government over the Sino-India standoff in eastern Ladakh.
On Friday, Rahul Gandhi took a veiled swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying while people of Ladakh claim that China has taken their land, the prime minister says otherwise.
“Ladakhis say: China took our land. PM says: Nobody took our land. Obviously, someone is lying,” he wrote on a Twitter.
Rahul Gandhi also shared the voices of some Ladakhis in a video alleging that the Chinese troops have occupied Indian territory in Ladakh.
The former Congress chief’s dig came on a day when Modi visited Nimu in Leh to interact with the personnel of the Army, Air Force and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), days after a violent face-off between Indian and Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh.
