Mumbai: Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s comment on Galwan Valley, “neither is anyone inside our territory nor is any of our post captured,” Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot has asked the PM to withdraw his statement.
“At the Opposition’s meeting, the Prime Minister said that China did not intrude into our land and capture any post. He has done a blunder. He knowingly or unknowingly gave a certificate to China, which it wanted. This was not required. He should withdraw his statement,” Ashok Gehlot said in a video conference.
“He is the only Prime Minister whose statement is being welcomed by China,” the Chief Minister claimed.
The Chief Minister said that the government should tell the nation about the situation on LAC. This is the right of the countrymen. “Isn’t it the prime minister’s moral responsibility to take the people of the country into confidence and clarify the LAC’s position,” he said
Gehlot said that the Prime Minister went to China four times as a Chief Mand five times as a Prime Minister and in general met the Chinese premier 18 times.
“In Ahmedabad, they enjoyed swings with Chinese leadership while there was a conflict on the border. The Prime Minister should have understood his intentions,” he said.
At least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in clashes with the Chinese army at Galwan Valley in Ladakh.
