Bengaluru: Senior politician Mayawati has expressed her displeasure over Congress politicising the Galwan clash.
"Bahujan Samaj Party stands with Bharatiya Janata Party on the India-China border issue. Politics being done by BJP and Congress by levelling accusations at each other over the India-China border issue is not in the interest of the nation. It is a matter of great concern," she said.
The leader also held Congress responsible for the ills the country had faced over the years and urged the BJP not to repeat it.

"BJP should learn something from Congress and should not repeat what they did. They will have to work really hard to make India 'Atmanirbhar', publicity won't do much.”
It is worthwhile to note that Congress has repeatedly needled the Modi government over the Galwan clash.
Interesting like-minded parties and Congressmen themselves have expressed their displeasure at the way Rahul Gandhi has behaved.
Gandhi has not made any meaning of his statement as EAM S Jaishankar tutored him on the issue of soldiers not carrying guns.
Then, he tried to play with words ‘surrender’ and ‘surender’, only ending up being scoffed at his flippancy.

In fact, other Congress leaders have also exhibited a less serious attitude at a time when the nation stands as one in the wake of Galwan clashes that resulted in the martyrdom of 20 Indian soldiers.
Even in the all-party meet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sonia Gandhi chose to be different by posing several questions to the Prime Minister, while others threw their weight behind him.
Milind Deora, a senior Congress leader said, “It’s highly unfortunate that the national discourse surrounding the surge in Chinese transgressions has deteriorated into political mud-slinging. When we should be united in condemning China’s actions & seeking solutions, we are exposing our divisions.”
Sharad Pawar had also not been happy with the way Rahul Gandhi had criticised Narendra Modi.
