Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday sharpened his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression.
Rahul Gandhi’s comments came a day after the Prime Minister asserted that Chinese troops did not intrude into Indian territory.
At least 20 Indian soldiers were killed by Chinese PLA troops in Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on June 15.
“PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression. If the land was Chinese: 1. Why were our soldiers killed? 2. Where were they killed?” Rahul tweeted.
Modi had emphasized that all necessary steps for national security and construction of necessary infrastructure will continue to be taken at a fast pace.
Rahul Gandhi has been attacking the PM Modi-led government since the incident took place earlier this week.
On Friday, he said that the Government was fast asleep and is in denial of the problem whose price was paid by our martyred Jawans.
A day before that, he raised questions about the soldiers being sent unarmed to face the Chinese on the LAC.
“By killing the unarmed soldiers of India, China has committed a big mistake. I want to ask who sent them unarmed towards the danger and why, who is responsible?” Rahul Gandhi said in a video message.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who also participated in the all-party meet on Friday, contended that “valuable time had been lost” and asked what the government was doing next.
“We have some specific questions, for the Government: On which date did the Chinese troops intrude into our territory in Ladakh? When did the government find out about the Chinese transgressions into our territory? Was it on May 5, as reported, or earlier?” she had asked.
