While addressing a press conference from Congress headquarters in Delhi, Gandhi said the PM has “not fulfilled the responsibility of protecting India’s territory” and has instead ceded territory to China.
“The PM is a coward who cannot stand up to the Chinese. He is spitting on the sacrifice of our army. He is betraying the sacrifice of our army. Nobody in India should be allowed to do it” Gandhi said.
Gandhi’s remarks come a day after India and China reached an agreement on disengagement in the North and South bank of Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh.
The Congress leader said that the area till Finger 4 in Pangong is India’s territory and asked PM to explain why the soldiers have been asked to move to Finger 3.
“It is clear PM Modi has given India’s land to China,” said Gandhi.
“The defence minister didn’t speak a word on the most important strategic area – Depsang Plains – from where China had entered. The truth is that the Prime Minister has given away the Indian territory to China. He must answer to the country,” said Gandhi.
