Mumbai: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi when a ‘befitting reply’ to China will be given and urged him to uncover the truth behind the violent face in the Galwan valley area in which at least 20 Indian Army personnel, including a Colonel, were killed.
“When will a befitting reply to China’s audacity be given? Without a bullet being fired our 20 jawans are martyred. What did we do? How many China’s jawans were killed? Has China entered our territory? Prime Minister the country is with you in this hour of struggle but what is the truth? Speak. Speak something. The country wants to know the truth. Jai Hind!” Raut’s tweet, roughly translated in English from Hindi, read.
“Prime Minister, you have valour and are a warrior… The country will take revenge from China under your leadership..” his subsequent tweet read.
प्रधान मंत्री जी आप शुर और योद्धा हो..आपके नेतृत्त्वमे
देश चीन से बदला लेंगा..
