New Delhi: Congress leader once again attacked the BJP-led Centre over the India-China standoff after Rajnath Singh’s statement in the Lok Sabha. In a tweet in Hindi the Congress leader said: ” It is clear from the statement of the Defense Minister that Modi ji misled the country on Chinese encroachment. Our country has always been, and will remain, with the Indian Army.
But Mr. Modi, w hen will you stand against China? When will we take back the land of our country from China? Do not be afraid to name China.”
The Defence Minister said that China has tried to disrupt the ground situation in May and June and it led to India’s response. “We have told China that such incidents won’t be acceptable to us,” Rajnath said.
China continues to be in illegal occupation of approximately 38,000 sq km in the Union Territory of Ladakh. In addition, under the so-called Sino-Pakistan ‘Boundary Agreement’ of 1963, Pakistan illegally ceded 5,180 sq km of Indian territory in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to China. China also claims approximately 90,000 sq kms of Indian territory in the eastern sector of the India-China boundary in Arunachal Pradesh, the minister said.
