Bengaluru: As the nation rejoices over India’s robust measure to ban as many as 59 Chinese apps, Congress has rued it. 

In a tweet, Kapil Sibal, senior Congressman, had this to say about the ban. 


Taking exception to it, BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, "See one can easily understand why the Congress party is so much hurt today. On one side Chinese apps are being banned and other steps are being taken to ensure sovereignty and integrity of India but on the other side leaders of Congress party are frustrated. They should understand one thing clearly that the nation will not accept their irresponsible behaviour and statements. Moreover, these close aides of Rahul Gandhi must realize that their own allies and leaders are unhappy with them but they feel that what they are doing is absolutely correct.”

The BJP leader further added, "I believe that they (Congress) must think twice before saying anything and introspect what they are doing. They must stop being sycophants of Gandhi family and should be aware about the ground reality.” 


On Monday, India government ordered that as many as 59 Chinese apps be shut down as they are a threat to India’s sovereignty and prejudicial to India’s interests. The move comes in the wake of Galwan clashes and several complaints which the government had received over India’s security. 

But Congress has stopped low in its hurry and urgency to defame the Modi government. 

It is to be noted that Rahul has only exhibited his ignorance while questioning the government in the immediacy of the clashes.

For example, he questioned the government as to why our soldiers had gone unarmed in the immediacy of Galwan clash. To this, EAM S Jaishankar had quoted the 1996 agreement in which Congress itself had been party to advocate ‘no firearms usage’ policy.

Later, he had even mocked Modi with the usage of the word ‘surrender’. He had called him ‘surender’ but ended up fooling himself for the typo.

Interestingly, senior politicians of the country like Sharad Pawar, NCP president, Milind Deora, senior Congressmen and Mayawati, BSP chief have disapproved of such behaviour.
