Galwan violent face off: Country with the government on the issue: Pritam Singh
Alleges that Union govt kept the nation in dark on Chinese intrusion
Expressing concern on the escalation of tensions on the Indo- China border and the violent skirmish between troops of the two countries at Galwan, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh has said that the country is standing firmly behind the government. He however took the Narendra Modi government to the task for keeping the country in dark on the issue.
An officer of Indian army and two Jawans were killed in a violent face off with the Chinese troops in the Galwan valley area of Ladakh on Monday. The Chinese side too suffered causality in the skirmish.
Talking to the media persons at the state headquarters of the Congress party here on Tuesday, Singh said that the Congress was repeatedly asking the government to clear confusion on the issue. “Rahul Gandhi ji asked the government to clarify whether the Chinese have intruded or not into the Indian Territory. The government never accepted any intrusion and it failed to take into confidence the nation and the political parties on the issue. Now results are for everyone to see. A serious challenge is in front of us and the whole nation is with the government to meet this challenge,’’ he said.
Questioning the foreign policy of the BJP government, the PCC president said that relations with Pakistan and China are not very conducive similarly in Sri Lanka, the Chinese have set up a naval base. He said that Nepal too is showing a belligerent attitude towards India. PCC president said that the foreign policy of the present government has failed miserably.
