New Delhi, June 10 : In a fresh salvo after trade-off with the central government on the issue of Chinese incursion, the Congress has attacked the Modi government asking if the government has fixed any accountability for failure to check Chinese intrusion at LAC.
Hitting out at the government, the Congress said, ministers speak for matters related to other ministries and concerned ministers either keep quiet or address rallies instead.
Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari, addressing a press conference on Wednesday, said, “Many experts have raised concern and the government should tell the nation whether the status quo prior to April 1, 2020 has been restored.”
Tewari also asked if status quo has been maintained in Galwan valley and questioned, “How did the Chinese Army enter Indian territory? Has the government fixed any accountability for this failure?”
“The Prime Minister should tell that from May 20 to till date, how much Indian territory the Chinese have occupied?” added Tewari.
The Congress leader posed questions that after the last round of talks, from which place the Chinese Army has receded and have they vacated LAC territory as per India”s perception. The Congress asked what is the extent of incursion at LAC.
“It”s astonishing how the Defence Minister has time for election rallies but not for addressing national security concerns,” said the statement from the party.
The Congress also hit back at Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad who had attacked Rahul Gandhi for asking questions related to Chinese intrusion on Twitter. The party replied that the BJP used to do the same while in opposition and showed how BJP leaders and the Prime Minister raised questions on Twitter in 2013.
