The Congress on Sunday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence over the border conflict with China.
The party alleged that the Chinese forcibly took over the land belonging to India.
“The red-eyed Modi government has kept mysterious silence about China forcibly taking over Indian land. Now, will the PM tell when and how to get rid of the enemy from Pangong lake posts?,” asked Congress national media in-charge Randeep Surjewala in a tweet in Hindi.
The Congress leader’s remarks came a day after Indian Army chief Gen MM Naravane’s statement that “disengagement” of Chinese and Indian troops has begun in the Galwan area, and that both sides “are disengaging in a phased manner”.
Surjewala also slammed the Central government over the alleged torture of an Indian national, who was taken into custody by the Nepal police on Friday afternoon after a firting incident near the border in Bihar’s Sitamarhi district.
“Will the red-eyed (Modi) and Sushasan Babu (Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar) answer?” Surjewala asked.
One man was killed and two others injured on Friday after the Nepal police opened fire on a crowd at a border area in Bihar’s Sitamarhi district.
Lagan Yadav was taken away by Nepal police on Friday following the firing incident at Jankinagar area.
