New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday again attacked the government over the Ladakh face-off, and asked what happened that China “took away” India’s land when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is at the helm.
He also tagged a news report quoting a defence expert, alleging that the Government is “misleading” the media on the Chinese disengagement along the LAC and that disengagement at the Galwan Valley is disadvantageous to India.
“What has happened that under Modi ji rule, China took away Mother India’s sacred land,” he asked in a tweet in Hindi.
Gandhi has been attacking Modi and his government on the standoff in Ladakh and has accused the prime minister of “surrendering” India’s land to China.
The Indian and Chinese armies are locked in a bitter standoff in multiple locations in eastern Ladakh for the last eight weeks. The tension escalated manifold after the Galwan Valley clashes on June 15 in which 20 Indian Army personnel were killed.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
