Mumbai: Shiv Sena Deputy Leader Priyanka Chaturvedi said on Saturday that the Center should respond to China’s claim that it had sovereignty over the Galwan Valley region in Ladakh.
Taking to Twitter, Chaturvedi said, “Yesterday PM Modi assured the nation that no posts/territory has been ceded to China, but here China claims Galwan Valley as theirs.”
“This is unacceptable and the government needs to clarify or respond to this. Have we exceeded our Galwan valley or ousted the PLA from there? The nation wants to know,” the recently elected Rajya Sabha member said in the tweet.

Twenty Indian army personnel, including a colonel, were killed in clashes with Chinese troops in the Galwan valley of eastern Ladakh on Monday night. It was the largest military confrontation between India and China in five decades.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on Friday asserted that neither is anyone inside India’s territory nor has any of its posts been captured.
