‘Modi ji misled the country on Chinese encroachment’ tweets Rahul Gandhi after Rajnath’s statement in Lok Sabha
Shortly after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday made a statement in the Lok Sabha on the border standoff with China, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Modi of misleading the country on LAC violations by the PLA.
“It is clear from the statement of the defence minister that Modi ji misled the country on Chinese encroachment. Our country has always stood with and will remain with the Indian Army,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
रक्षामंत्री के बयान से साफ़ है कि मोदी जी ने देश को चीनी अतिक्रमण पर गुमराह किया।
हमारा देश हमेशा से भारतीय सेना के साथ खड़ा था, है और रहेगा।
लेकिन मोदी जी,
आप कब चीन के ख़िलाफ़ खड़े होंगे?
चीन से हमारे देश की ज़मीन कब वापस लेंगे?
चीन का नाम लेने से डरो मत।

“But Modiji, when will you stand against China? When will we take back our country’s land from China? Do not be afraid to name China,” the former Congress president added.
Rajnath Singh had said in the Lok Sabha that India is committed to a peaceful resolution to the border stand-off with China and India and China have not arrived at a mutually acceptable solution until now.
He said Indian forces are determined to protect the country’s security and sovereignty and inflicted heavy casualties on Chinese forces when they clashed with them in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley on June 15.
Before Tuesday, Gandhi had questioned the government on the issue of Chinese aggression on September 11. “The Chinese have taken our land. When exactly is GOI planning to get it back? Or is that also going to be left to an Act of God?” the former Congress president had asked on Twitter.
