Chinese have taken our territory in Ladakh, PM Modi stays silent: Rahul Gandhi
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s alleged “silence” over the Indo-Chino stand-off.
In a fresh salvo, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s alleged “silence” over the Indo-Chino stand-off. On Wednesday, he alleged that China has taken India's territory in Ladakh and yet the Prime Minister is silent on the issue.
"The Chinese have walked in and taken our territory in Ladakh. Meanwhile. The PM is absolutely silent and has vanished from the scene," Gandhi said in a tweet. To substantiate his claim, the former Congress president had attached a news report.
Gandhi has been asking the Modi government to come clean on the Indo-China border issue as to whether China has taken over Indian territory in the Ladakh region.
On June 9, Gandhi had questioned Defence Minister Rajnath Singh over the border stand-off, “Once RM is done commenting on the hand symbol, can he answer: Have the Chinese occupied Indian territory in Ladakh?”
The tweet had come in response to the Defence Minister’s attempt at mocking the Congress’ party symbol.
Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party Ladakh MP had responded to Gandhi’s salvos on the Centre by reminding him of the Indian territories captured by the Chinese during the 1962 war.
