Mumbai, June 19: Shiv Sena has again attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked if the killing of 20 Indian soldiers by Chinese PLA in Ladakh’s Galwan valley is not provocation then what it is?.
In the editorial of Samna, Shiv Sena said, “Countries consider the attack on their soldiers as an attack on the dignity and self-esteem on the nation and they counter attack but still the PM is saying that if someone tries to provoke us, we will give him a befitting reply”.
The editorial added that the attack by Chinese Army is as dreadful and deadly as it was in 1962.
“This is the biggest attack on self-esteem and integrity. It is now being said that the sacrifice of our soldiers will not go in vain… But we can only threaten Pakistan. How can we free the country from the illusion that we are unable to deal with China?” it asked.
Marathi daily even questioned the Modi government of the ammunition, said, “Our soldiers were dealing with odd circumstances in 1962 war but even now we have everything today, but still Chinese brutally killed our soldiers. If those who used to blame Pandit Nehru do some introspection, the sacrifice of 20 soldiers will become meaningful!”.
The Shiv Sena has in its mouthpiece, Saamna, termed the incident as the biggest attack on self-esteem and integrity and further attacked Modi who is obsessed with attacking Gandhi family for one reason or the other, and said “if those who used to blame Pandit Nehru do some introspection, the sacrifice of 20 soldiers will become meaningful.”
“Chinese soldiers surrounded, kidnapped and brutally beat them up with barbed sticks in the Galwan valley. Indian soldiers were not attentive and were suddenly attacked by Chinese soldiers. Earlier, the Pakistani army had beheaded our soldiers in Kashmir. Then we were all screaming that we would bring ten heads instead of one,” read the editorial.
“Now the Chinese monkeys brutally killed 20 of our soldiers. More than 150 soldiers are seriously injured. Prime Minister Modi has now called an all-party meeting in a hurry. Modi had earlier said, ‘India will never compromise on integrity. If someone tries to provoke us, we will give him a befitting reply’,” the editorial said.
Saamna reiterated that boycotting Chinese imports may create to some extent financial crisis for China.
“What are you going to do for many Chinese companies in India? If a Chinese company are stopped from Maharashtra, any other state can make a deal with it. Therefore, the Central government should make national policy on Chinese companies. There is a trade of 6 lakh crores rupees between both the countries, ” it said.
