Bengaluru: As reported by Republic TV, a Public Interest Litigation was filed in the Supreme Court seeking an NIA probe into the MoU signed between the Congress party and the Communist Party of China on August 7, 2008.
The petitioner added that the nation's security could not be compromised by anyone. It alleged that it pertained to exchanging high-level information and cooperation between Congress and the CPC besides providing the two parties with the "opportunity to consult each other on important bilateral, regional and international developments”.
It also alleged that there were visits of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her family to China during this period, which included attending the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.
The petition alleged that there were nearly 600 Chinese intrusions from 2008 to 2013 on India's side of the LAC. It further noted that the Congress-led UPA was in power at that juncture.
What’s more interesting is that the PIL alleges that the Congress party had refused to make the contents of the MoU public despite repeated appeals from one of the petitioners, Savio Rodrigues- the Editor-in-Chief of Goa Chronicle.
According to the PIL, the MoU had evoked several questions such as whether the national security could be sabotaged by an agreement with the "enemy state".
Congress plays politics over Galwan clash:
Rahul Gandhi, the former AICC chief, questioned the government as to how the soldiers went unarmed when his own party in power (1996) had signed an agreement with China on the issue of not using firearms.
Then, he went full throttle to make fun of Modi by using the word ‘surrender’ but only ended up being mocked for a typo ‘surender’.
Other Congress leaders have also mocked the country over the clashes. One of them asked RSS volunteers to go to the border while another hoped that ill would befall Ladakh.
