If land was Chinese territory, why and where were Indian soldiers killed, asks Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday asked the government why and where the Indian soldiers were killed if the land, where the clash happened, was Chinese territory.

He also alleged that the PM has “surrendered Indian territory to the Chinese aggression”.

“PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression. If the land was Chinese: 1. Why were our soldiers killed? 2. Where were they killed?” Rahul tweeted.

His attack on the government came a day after PM Modi held an all-party meeting to discuss the India-China clash at Ladakh.

On Friday PM Modi held an All-Party Meeting via video conferencing to discuss the situation in India-China border areas. Presidents of various political parties participated in the meeting.

At the outset, Prime Minister clarified that neither is anyone inside our territory nor is any of our post captured. He said that twenty of our brave soldiers made the supreme sacrifice for the nation in Ladakh but also taught a lesson to those who had dared to look towards our motherland. The nation will forever remember their valour and sacrifice.

Prime Minister Modi in the meeting assured the families of the martyrs that the entire country stands with them.

Modi said that the entire country is hurt and angry at the steps taken by China at LAC. He assured the leaders that our armed forces are leaving no stone unturned to protect the country. 

Prime Minister emphasized the commitment of the government to welfare of the nation and its citizens and said that be it in trade, connectivity or counter-terrorism, the government has always stood up to outside pressure. He assured that all steps necessary for national security and construction of necessary infrastructure, will continue to be taken at a fast pace. He reassured the leaders about the capability of the armed forces to defend our borders and that they have been given a free hand to take all necessary steps.
