New Delhi, July 13 : Upping the ante against the BJP-led Central government over the India-China border face-off in Ladakh, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi indirectly accusing him of lying asleep and the nation paying the price for the same.

“He”s ”lying” asleep. And India is paying for it,” Rahul Gandhi said in the tweet attaching a news report.

The news report claimed that the Chinese moves were likely planned for months.

India and China were engaged in a bitter face-off in Ladakh”s Galwan Valley after 20 Indian soldiers, including an officer, were killed by the People”s Liberation Army (PLA) troopers on June 15. Rahul Gandhi”s remarks came amid reports of the second round of talks with the Chinese authorities on the disengagement at the LAC in the Pangong Lake and Depsang areas in eastern Ladakh.

The government had announced on Thursday about the second round of talks with China.

The delegates of both countries will discuss the withdrawal of tanks, artillery and additional forces from the forward positions. “The next meeting of the Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination on the India-China border affairs is expected to take place soon,” the External Affairs Ministry had announced.

New Delhi, Aug 13 (IANS) Heavy rains lashed Delhi on Thursday morning, bringing down the capital’s rain deficiency for the monsoon season to the lowest in 10 years. The downpour, which was reportedly the heaviest spell of rains this monsoon, resulted in water-logging at several places. Traffic too was disrupted and commuters struggled.

“Due to heavy rains, a drain has been damaged near Khaira village T-point on Dhansa road where underground metro work is going on. Traffic movement has been closed on 200 meters stretch of that portion of Dhansa road,” the Delhi Traffic police said.

Diversion of heavy traffic including buses and goods vehicles was done from Rawta village mod on main Dhansa road. The diverted traffic has to take the Rawta mod – Ujjawa village – Gumenhera village -Khaira village road to reach the Najafagarh phirni road.

Due to continuous rains, water-logging was also reported at Chhatta Rail, Kela Ghat, IP flyover, Minto Road, Bakoli Khampur, Mundka Nangloi, Mayapuri flyover, Raja Garden flyover, roundabout at Mandi House and Guru Nanak Chowk.

Traffic was also affected after a tree fell on the road in front of the Delhi High Court complex. Commuters had to wait near Pul Prahladpur underpass as water-logging made it difficult for motorists and pedestrians to cross the stretch.
