Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has actually consistently attacked the federal government over the China concern (File)
Rahul Gandhi may not be in the country as Parliament takes place but the Congress MP has actually continued his attacks on the Narendra Modi federal government over the India-China border stand-off.
Mr Gandhi, who accompanied his mother Sonia Gandhi as she flew out recently for a medical check-up, tweeted: “ Aap chronology samajhiye(Please comprehend the chronology)” and declared that days before PM Modi stated China had actually not crossed into Indian territory, the federal government “took a huge loan from a China-based bank”.
The tweet functioned as a swipe at Home Minister Amit Shah, who used the exact same phrase in 2015 about the questionable CAA and NRC programmes.
“ Aap chronology samajhiye(Please understand the chronology). PM stated no one got in the border … Then took a substantial loan from China-based bank … Then defence minister said China had encroached … Now Minister of State for Home stated no infringement,” Mr Gandhi tweeted.
” Is Modi federal government with Indian Army or China? Modi ji, why so scared?” he asked.
Understand the chronology:
???? PM stated- no one crossed the border
???? Then, took a big loan from a China-based bank
???? Then, Def Minutes stated- China occupied our land
???? Now, MOS House says- there’s no infiltration.
Is Modi Govt with Indian Army or with China?
Modi ji, why so scared?

In June Prime Minister Modi, after the Galwan violence, stated: “ Neither has anyone intruded into our territory nor taken control of any post” – a remark seen by the Congress as indicating China had actually crossed the LAC, due to the fact that the option was India had crossed it.
According to news agency Reuters, around that same time the federal government secured a $750 million loan from the Beijing-backed Asian Infrastructure Financial Investment Bank (AIIB) in June. The money was to help India fight the coronavirus pandemic, Reuters reported.
Ever since the government has cracked down on business negotiations with China, consisting of prohibiting China-made smart phone apps and withdrawing tenders with Chinese companies.
Today the Home Ministry informed Parliament no infiltration had been reported along the LAC(Line of Actual Control, the de facto border with China) in the previous six months. However, this seemed to oppose Defence Minister Rajnath Singh who the other day stated China had actually made efforts in mid-May
Mr Gandhi has actually been a singing critic of the Narendra Modi government.
On Tuesday he tweeted after the Defence Minister’s declaration, urging him to “ not hesitate of taking China’s name“. Previously this year he accused the Prime Minister of “giving up” to the Chinese and has because frequently declared that the government is attempting to mislead the people on this concern.
India and China have been engaged in a major border stand-off because skirmishes were reported from the Pangong Lake area in Ladakh in Might.
Numerous talks at various levels – from military to ministerial – have, up until now, stopped working to defuse the situation. The Foreign Ministers of the 2 countries fulfilled in Moscow recently and drew up a five-point strategy to fix the prolonged problem.
