India China Ladakh Border

New Delhi, July 6 : In wake of reports that Chinese Army has retreated two km behind the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Congress, which has been questioning the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Chinese transgressions, on Monday credited the armed forces for the development.

“We know that the PLA can”t withstand the Indian forces, so they have retreated but the Prime Minister has to reply to tough questions,” part spokesperson Pawan Khera said at a press conference here on Monday.

The Prime Minister should himself come forward and tell what is the truth though in the all-party meeting, he had said that no Indian territory has been occupied, he said.

“We demand that Prime Minister should tell the facts to the nation,” Khera said, assuring that his party will not raise questions if Modi says that his earlier statement in the all-party meeting was not correct.

On reports that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval spoke to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi after which Chinese forces withdrew, Khera said that this government has to decide that it needs ministers who should do their jobs.

“What is the Foreign Minister doing?” he asked.

Taking potshots at the Modi government, Khera said there is no system in the government as sometimes businessmen talk (in case of Pakistan) and sometimes foundations talk (in case of China).

“Why did the Prime Minister visit China without agenda?” asked Khera.

Indian and Chinese troops have retreated two kilometres behind the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Galwan Valley, where 20 Indian and unknown number of Chinese soldiers were killed in a violent face-off on June 15.

Top official sources told IANS that both sides retreated two km simultaneously on Sunday, following several rounds of talks which had begun after the clash on June 15. The disengagement between Indian and the People”s Liberation Army (PLA) happened as per the agreed terms in the Corps Commander”s meeting.

J P Nadda

New Delhi, July 6 : After Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief J.P. Nadda attacked former Congress president Rahul Gandhi for not attending the parliamentary committee on defence’s meeting, the Congress, here on Monday, launched a counter-attack and said the BJP chief had become a “poorer version” of malicious BJP spokespersons.

Hitting out Nadda, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “Daily insidious comments are making you look like a poorer version of malicious BJP spokespersons.”

“Had the BJP and the Narendra Modi government spent its energy in fighting China and supporting our armed forces, you wouldn”t need to lie on the Chinese transgressions to mislead the nation,” he said.

Attacking the BJP president, Surjewala raised question about deduction of Rs 11,000 crore ”dearness pay” of the armed forces.

“Didn”t the estimates committee of Parliament, headed by former BJP chief M.M. Joshi, submit a report saying the defence expenditure was the lowest in 56 years — since 1962,” Surjewala remarked.

“Didn”t the standing committee on defence, headed by Gen B.C. Khanduri, say 68 per cent of our equipment is vintage and there are insufficient resources for construction of strategic roads on the China border,” he said.

When it sought the Prime Minister”s Office”s intervention for adequate allocation in the defence budget, the PMO chose not to act, Surjewala added.

The Congress also raised the issue of shelving of the plan to carve out 90,000-strong “Mountain Strike Corps” to counter the Chinese build-up on borders.

Surjewala said China had committed 2,264 transgressions on our territory since 2015 under the Modi government and asked why didn”t the BJP government act upon this Chinese design.

“There are reports that Chinese troops are retreating, but the Prime Minister said no one ever occupied our territory. Did he then mislead the nation,” the Congress leader said.

Shankersinh Vaghela

Gandhinagar, July 6 : Former Nationalist Congress Party leader and Gujarat Chief Minister Shankersinh Vaghela, who had tested positive for coronavirus last month, was discharged from hospital on Monday.

The 81-year-old leader, fondly known as Bapu by his supporters, was discharged on Monday from the Sterling hospital in Ahmedabad after treatment for corona infection.

“I have been confident of my immune system, but the last 3-4 months were very hectic and had lot of travelling. I used to meet so many people. Especially, I visited so many hospitals during two months, so it was obvious that at some point of time, I would contract the virus,” Vaghela told the media.

“When I was admitted, my condition was bad, but thanks to the medical staff here, I am completely alright now,” he.

Vaghela was found to be Coid positive ten days back. After three days of self quarantine at his residence ”Vasant Vagdo” in Gandhinagar, he had to be rushed to the hospital.

He had recently tendered his resignation from the post of national General Secretary of the NCP as well as from the primary membership of the party.

He then formed his own political front called ”Praja Shakti Morcho”.
