BJP has torn into Congress as the grand old part continues to play politics over Galwan clashes
Bengaluru: As the Galwan clash exposes how China intrudes into our territory and kills our own soldiers with impunity, the Congress continues to play politics over the issue.
Sambit Patra, BJP spokesperson exposed Congress and its hypocrisy over how it dealt with the issue of China during its tenure.
Quoting the parliamentary proceedings in the Rajya Sabha in 2012, he revealed that the UPA had agreed that about 38,000 sq km of Indian territory was in China's possession and about 78,000 sq km in J&K was in Pakistan's possession, as reported by Republic TV.
He said, "The way the Congress party is trying to politicise the Ladakh issue, we are here to expose how the Congress throughout its history has had a soft stance towards China and has conceded Indian territory because of it."
He also added, "Pakistan has been in illegal occupation of 78,000 sq km in J&K. China continues to be in illegal occupation of 38,000 sq km. Under so-called Sino-Pak boundary agreement of 1962, Pakistan has also ceded 5180 sq km to China."
Patra also tore into Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on the issue of signing treaties with China.
He said, "The entire nation asks this mother-son duo, under whose leadership such treaties are signed, from Nehru to Manmohan Singh. Our soldiers were not given any aid or warning. They ran to defend our Indian territory in canvas shoes on the Himalayas. They did not back down, they fought valiantly for the country. They died in the cold and their feet lost sensation due to frostbite but they gave their all just because of the foolishness of this dynasty who went on distributing Indian territories to China and Pakistan.”
A note on how Congress has played politics:
Ever since the Galwan clashes, Congress has kept on questioning the Indian government. While Rahul Gandhi wondered why Indian soldiers went unarmed, other leaders like Dalwai and Ladakh Congress councillor have instigated RSS workers and have hoped ills for India.
