Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the killing of 20 Indian soldiers in the violent faceoff with Chinese forces at Galwan Valley.
“Why is the PM silent? Why is he hiding? Enough is enough. We need to know what has happened. How dare China kill our soldiers? How dare they take our land?” Rahul tweeted.
Indian Army on Tuesday said 20 soldiers have died and many others are injured in the faceoff with Chinese troops at Galwan valley.
