The Congress has alleged that the Narendra Modi government is creating myth on Chinese transgression through media.
Chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala on Sunday said the Chinese have still occupied the Indian territory at Depsang Plains and Pangong Tso lake and still building additional army deployment, which is indicative of an impending danger.
“What is the meaning of Defence Minister’s statement that there is no guarantee of resolving the issue through talks and has the government accepted that it can’t resolve the issue?” Surjewala said in a media briefing in Delhi.
The Congress wanted to know from the government, “in how many days status quo ante of prior to May 5 will be restored and what is the government policy on it?”
“Is China involved in construction at Daulat Beg Oldi and Depsang? What is the government doing about it? Has China occupied Finger 4 to 8 at Pangong Tso lake area?” Surjewala questioned.
He said Chinese occupation on Indian land is unacceptable and there would be no compromise on territorial integrity and national security.
“Congress party and the citizens of the country have said repeatedly that it is with the Armed Forces and the government on this issue, but it’s regrettable that the government and the Prime Minister is creating confusion through media on Chinese incursions and not even bothering to restore status quo ante,” alleged Surjewala.
