Senior Congress leader and former president of the Indian National Congress once again attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Indo-China dispute in Ladakh. In a series of tweets, Gandhi has raised questions to the PM on his silence in the matter of Ladakh.
"The Chinese have walked in and taken our territory in #Ladakh. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister is absolutely silent and has vanished from the scene," stated Gandhi.
This is not the first time Gandhi has targetted PM Modi on the Indo-China dispute. He has been continuously questioning the PM Modi led NDA government for not being able to handle the situation in Ladakh. Previously, on May 28th he raised his concern over the government's silence over this land dispute in Ladakh between India and China.
"The Government’s silence about the border situation with China is fueling massive speculation and uncertainty at a time of crisis. GOI must come clean and tell India exactly what’s happening," Gandhi Gandhi quoted in his Tweet last month.
On Saturday, Indian military commanders had a meeting with Chinese Commanders to discuss in the matter of Ladakh's land. As per a report by The Wire, China has refused to discuss its intrusions into the Galwan River Valley and also claimed ownership over the entire area.
In response to Gandhi, BJP MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal shared some facts.
"I hope Rahul Gandhi and the Indian National Congress will agree with my reply based on facts and hopefully, they won't try to mislead again," he tweeted with a list of areas occupied by China during Congress tenure.
