Rahul Gandhi asks government: ‘Has China occupied Indian territory?’
Rahul Gandhi tweeted out a picture of Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh where the stand-off with China began last month. The image was originally captured by former prime minister and his father late Rajiv Gandhi
New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday (June 23) asked the Union government whether China has occupied Indian territory.
“We are standing united against Chinese aggression. Has China occupied Indian territory?” Gandhi tweeted along with a photograph of the Pangong Tso lake clicked by his father and former prime minister late Rajiv Gandhi.
Rahul has been attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his statement at an all-party meeting last week that neither is anyone inside India’s territory nor has anyone captured its posts while referring to the Ladakh face-off.
Earlier too, the Congress leader had asked the government whether China has occupied any Indian territory.
The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has already clarified Modi’s comments, and said attempts are being made to give a “mischievous interpretation”.
Firing a fresh salvo at PM Modi, Rahul on Monday asked as to why China is “praising Mr Modi during this conflict”.
