Bengaluru: After 20 Indian soldiers were martyred in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley following “violent clashes” with Chinese troops, a TV news anchor questioned the Indian Army and was trolled online.
As per reports, Sweta Singh was quoted as saying, “The duty to patrol the borders is of the Army and not the government.”
“The Indian Army has the freedom to patrol without waiting for a command from political masters. If the reports say that China overtook Indian land, it raises a question on the Indian Army,” she added.
