New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the sacrifice of Indian soldiers killed in the Galwan Valley clash in Ladakh will not go in vain.

In his opening remarks on day two of the virtual conference with chief ministers on coronavirus, he also said that India wants peace but is capable of giving a befitting reply, if instigated.

For us, the unity and sovereignty of the country is most important, he said.

Modi said India has always tried that differences do not become disputes. Later, the prime minister and those attending the meeting observed silence of a few minutes as a mark of respect for the slain soldiers.

Twenty Indian soldiers including a colonel, were killed on Monday evening in a clash with Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.

  1. Wait for the next summon from GuruXi for something to follow upon Wuhan and the SCO, and our Ab Tak 56″ Pradhan Mantriji will rush, cap in hand, looking for a new train or other project after overruling the armed forces yet again to lobby his own regime from the inside for Huawei, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Haier and other Chinese companies. Narendra Modi thought that he could work with the Chinese on his and Xi Jinping’s common hatred of Muslims. A dose of anti Americanism in his political philosophy made his delusion of allying with China stronger. In the end, the daydream ended with the deaths of 20 of India’s finest men, with China wealthier by the billions thanks to that country’s access to Indian markets as encouraged by Modi, and with India a laughing stock from across it’s Western border. Time for him to wake up and smell the coffee, and, if he refuses to do this, for the Indian voter to do exactly that enroute to the next elections.

  2. In your top story why Chinese comment is at the top and after that Indian PM response.
    It’s sad and gives lot about your prospective.
