Why were our soldiers sent unarmed to martyrdom: Rahul Gandhi

In another attack on Narendra Modi government over killing of Indian soldiers by the Chinese troops in violet face-off in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday asked why soldiers were sent unarmed to martyrdom.

“How dare China kill our unarmed soldiers? Why were our soldiers sent unarmed to martyrdom?” Rahul Gandhi asked the government in a tweet.

His remarks came a day after he questioned PM Modi over his silence on the killing of Indian soldiers in Galwan Valley on Monday night.

“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 yesterday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday paid tribute to the martyrs of Galwan valley. In his address, PM Modi said, “I salute them for their great sacrifice in their service to the Nation. I pay tributes to them with my heartfelt gratitude. In this difficult moment of grief, I express my condolences to the families of these Martyrs.”

“This supreme sacrifice of our Martyrs will not go in vain. Whatever may be the situation and circumstances, India will firmly protect every inch of the country’s land and its self-respect,” he said.

“I want to assure the Nation that the sacrifice made by our soldiers will not go in vain. India’s integrity and sovereignty are supreme for us, and no one can stop us from defending it,” he added.
