New Delhi, April 27: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying “Saw the live TV feed of your “No Agenda” China visit. You look tense”.

Gandhi reminded Modi of ‘crucial’ issues like Doklam, China Pakistan Eco Corridor during his ‘no agenda’ visit to China.

He tweeted “Dear PM, Saw the live TV feed of your “No Agenda” China visit. You look tense! A quick reminder: 1. DOKLAM 2. China Pakistan Eco Corridor passes through POK. That’s Indian territory. India wants to hear you talk about these crucial issues. You have our support”.

Earlier in a series of tweets, Communications Incharge Randeep Singh Surjewala also wondered if Modi was going to confront China over the Doklam issue during his two-day informal summit with Jinping.

“As Modi ji ‘hugs’ his friend, President Xi Jinping today in Wuhan, China, will he remember his innate duty to protect India’s strategic interests and question China on occupation of Dokalam impacting India’s national security?

“India is facing increasingly aggressive China to intrude into the ‘Chicken’s Neck’ -Siliguri Corridor by building a new road through South of Doklam but why is Modi Govt clueless and incapable to send a strong message to China?” he asked.

Surjewala referred to visits of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to China for bilateral meetings with their counterparts earlier this month and asked if Modi will accept that they had “abdicated their duty” by not talking about the Doklam issue.

“Does the Prime Minister accept the failure of his Cabinet Ministers (Defence and EAM) to confront China on creation of ‘full-fledged Chinese Military Complex’ in Doklam right up to 10m from Indian Army post, during their visit on April 20-24 as an abdication of their duty to the Nation?” he asked.

He also said that the latest imagery had shown China creating additional structures at its military complex in Doklam.

“Doesn’t the latest satellite imagery from Google Maps of April 25, 2018, show creation of additional structures by China metres away from Indian Army posts? Has Prime Minister and Defence Ministry taken note of it?

“Will PM Modi take up the issue in the Summit with Chinese President today in Wuhan, China ? Modi ji may not be able to show ‘red eyes’ as he loftily promised, but will he show the courage of conviction to do plain-speaking on Doklam and defend India’s interests?” he said in a tweet.
