Those casting evil eye on Indian soil got befitting response: PM Modi
While Prime Minister Modi claimed India gave a befitting reply to those casting evil eye on our territory in Galwan valley, he failed to even mention China during his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ address.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the nation that those casting an evil eye on Indian territory in Ladakh have got a befitting reply. The Prime Minister’s assurance comes in the wake of contradictory reports of the presence of Chinese troops on the Indian side of Line of Actual Control
(LAC) and the oppositions’ sharp attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government.
On Sunday, PM Modi addressed the nation through his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’. During the address, he said “our brave soldiers have proven that they will not let anyone cast an evil eye on the glory and honour of Mother India.”
The India-China stand-off in Eastern Ladakh’s Galwan Valley led to the killing of 20 Indian soldiers on June 15. This was the first time in 45 years the LAC witnessed a bloodshed
Ever since the killing of Indian soldiers in Galwan Valley, the opposition has been attacking the Modi government over the issue. Congress leaders like Rahul Gandhi have been asking the government to come clear on whether the Chinese incursion on Indian territory took place or not.
Modi said that while India honours the spirit of friendship and it is also capable of giving an appropriate response to any adversary.
However, he didn’t mention China’s name during his address.
The world had seen India's strength and commitment to protecting its borders and sovereignty, said PM Modi, as he paid tributes to the 20 soldiers who were killed during a violent clash with Chinese troops in Galwan valley during the programme.
While speaking about the coronavirus pandemic, the Prime Minister asked people to be more careful during the 'unlock' period. He urged Indians to support the government’s “Vocal for local” initiative to help Indian businesses.
