New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has convened an all-party virtual meet on Friday to discuss the situation along the India-China border, his office said on Wednesday.

The meeting comes against the backdrop of demands by the opposition seeking details of the violent face-off between Indian and Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh which left 20 Indian Army personnel dead.

“In order to discuss the situation in the India-China border areas, Prime Minister @narendramodi has called for an all-party meeting at 5 PM on 19th June. Presidents of various political parties would take part in this virtual meeting,” the PMO tweeted.

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

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday asked the prime minister to share the truth of the India-China face-off, saying the entire country is standing behind him.

Earlier in the day, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that Indian soldiers displayed exemplary courage and valour in the line of duty and sacrificed their lives in the highest traditions of the Indian Army.

“The Nation will never forget their bravery and sacrifice. My heart goes out to the families of the fallen soldiers …We are proud of the bravery and courage of India’s bravehearts,” he wrote on Twitter.

  1. It would be advisable if Rahul Gandhi stops “demanding answers from the Prime Minister” about the LAC & China.
    This is a critical time and some strategic & tactical issues CANNOT be discussed in the media; else the Govt loses its tactical advantage during execution.
    Rahul Gandhi is so immature that he cannot even understand a simple thing like this.
    Had Mr Gandhi had made a dignified statement that Congress stands with the Govt on this issue; he would have gained tremendous respect from the people.
    But Mr Gandhi fails yet again & reminds us all why the key of the nation CANNOT be handed over the the Congress anymore.
