Congress leader Rahul Gandhi retaliated on Tuesday when Defense Minister Rajnath Singh targeted him and asked if Chinese troops had captured Indian territory in Ladakh. He tweeted, 'If the defense minister's comment on the handprint is complete, then he can answer if the Chinese troops have occupied Indian territory in Ladakh?'
After Rahul Gandhi's sarcastic remarks on the defense minister, Ladakh BJP MP Jamyang Sering Namgyal hit back at the Congress leader on Wednesday (June 10, 2020). He tagged Rahul Gandhi in a tweet and wrote, "Yes, China has captured Indian territory." He has also shared two pictures with the tweet. In one, he has the answer to Rahul Gandhi and the second picture is of Demchok Valley. In which he claimed that these areas were occupied by China during the tenure of Congress.
The BJP MP wrote that China occupied Aksai Chin (37,244 sq km) during the Congress rule in 1962. Tia Pangank and Chubji Valley (250 m in length) remained under Chinese occupation in the Chumur region until 2008 under the UPA. The Joravar Fort at Demchok was demolished in 2008 by the PLA. And during the UPA regime in 2012, the PLA created Observing Point. Also built a Chinese colony with 13 cemented houses. India lost the Doom Chela (ancient trade point) between Dungati and Demjok in 2008–2009 during the Congress-led NDA alliance.
Explain that the Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday claimed the deadlock on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh that Chinese soldiers have entered the Indian border but Prime Minister Narendra Modi is silent and is nowhere to be seen. He tweeted, 'Sugar has entered our region in Ladakh. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister is completely silent and is nowhere to be seen. '
Significantly, the Indian and Chinese forces have called back their troops from some patrol points in eastern Ladakh as a 'symbolic withdrawal', demonstrating their resolve to a peaceful resolution of the deadlock at the border. At the same time, both sides are scheduled to hold another round of Major General level talks on this issue on Wednesday.
Let there be a violent clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in Pangong Tso area on May 5, after which the two sides were face to face and the deadlock persisted. It became the biggest military standoff after the Doklam incident of 2017. (Agency input)
