Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday once again sharpened his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the India-China border face off issue saying he fabricated a “fake” strongman image to come to power and now his biggest strength is “India’s biggest weakness”.

“Prime Minister fabricated a fake strongman image to come to power. It was his biggest strength. It is now India’s biggest weakness,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet attaching his second video of the series.

Rahul Gandhi said, it is not “simply” a border issue.

“The worry I have is that the Chinese are sitting in our territory today. Chinese don’t do anything without thinking about its strategies. In their mind they have mapped out a world and they are trying to shape the world. That’s the scale of what they are doing, what is Gwadar is and what is one belt and road is. It is restructuring of the planet. So if you are thinking of the Chinese you have to understand that,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi on Friday released his first video and questioned the government’s foreign policy. He slammed the Narendra Modi government over the face-off with China in Ladakh.

He said China chose this time to intrude in our land as India’s foreign policy, economy and relationship with neighbouring countries are disrupted.

Rahul Gandhi explained the reasons of China selecting this time to intrude in our land and released a video on it.

He has been critical of the government over the handling of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) situation with the China after the killing of 20 Indian soldiers, including an officer on June 15 in Ladakh’s Galwan area by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). He has questioned the government over its claim that China did not occupy or intrude into India.

Firing salvos at the government over China’s intrusion in India, Rahul Gandhi said, “The question is why the Chinese choose this particular time to move. What is it about the India’s situation that has made China act in such an aggressive way. What is about this moment of time to have the confidence that they can move against country like India?

Delhi High Court

 The Delhi High Court on Monday observed that the state government has taken adequate steps to provide financial assistance to widows through pensions and other schemes.

“Looking at the Delhi government’s affidavit, it appears that adequate steps have been taken by it to provide funds to the widows. We see no reason to further monitor this case,” said a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan.

The Department of Social Welfare had filed the affidavit in response to a petition by social activist Harpal Singh Rana through advocate Akhil Rana and Utkarsh Sharma, claiming that pensions to around 12,000 widows had been discontinued during the COVID-19 lockdown by the Ministry of Women and Child Development without any valid reason.

The AAP government said in the affidavit, filed through advocate Anjum Javed, that it is remitting monthly pensions to beneficiaries so that they did not face any financial hardship during the pandemic.

“… the Department of Social Welfare has not withheld or discontinued pensions in respect of any beneficiary on imaginary grounds,” the affidavit said.

“The whole process of filing applications for all pension schemes, that is, old-age and disability pensions as well as financial assistance under the Delhi Family Benefit Scheme of the Department is online only.”

It said the money given under the Head “Financial Assistance to Widows for Performing Marriages of their Daughters” has been increased to Rs 1 lakh from Rs 60,000.

Rana told the court in his petition that as per a Right to Information reply, pensions of around 12,000 widows had been discontinued by the Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government also told the court that the status of the online applications is sent by the portal on the mobile numbers of the applicants. In offline cases, the status (acceptance/rejection) is conveyed by district offices through anganwadi/ASHA workers and displayed on the e-district portal.
