Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has launched yet another scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the ‘face-off’ between Indian troopers and China’s PLA soldiers at Naku La in Sikkim last week.

In a fresh jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP from Wayanad in Kerala – Rahul Gandhi, on Monday criticised PM Modi for maintaining silence on the issue of China trying to intrude into Indian Territory.

Rahul Gandhi while taking to the Twitter said, “China is expanding its occupation into Indian territory. Mr 56” hasn’t said the word ‘China’ for months. May be he can start by saying the word ‘China’.”

Rahul Gandhi’s latest dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi follows a clash between the troopers of the Indian Army and China’s PLA soldiers at Naku La in Sikkim along the McMohan line.

“There was a minor face-off at Naku La area of north Sikkim on 20 January 2021,” said the Army in a statement.

However, the “minor face-off was resolved by local commanders as per established protocols”.

Further blaming the Centre for China trying to intrude into Indian Territory, Rahul Gandhi said that due to the deplorable condition of the Country’s economy, China has dared to undertake such misadventures.

“India’s strength is a strong economy, employed youth & social harmony. Had Mr Modi protected our farmers-labourers-workers instead of hollowing out India by helping his crony capitalist friends, China wouldn’t have had the guts to take our land,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Rahul Gandhi said that the Centre’s duty is to keep a check at Chinese infiltration bids, instead of trying to suppress farmers’ protest near Delhi.
