The Congress on Tuesday implicated the federal government of avoiding disputing the Ladakh standoff problem in Lok Sabha and questioned the lack of Prime Minister Narendra Modi from your home.
Members of the Congress left of the Lok Sabha and staged a protest in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue in the Parliament Home complex after they were not enabled to speak following a declaration by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on the border standoff with China in eastern Ladakh.
Making a declaration in Lok Sabha, Defence Minister Singh had said he would not hesitate to share that India is dealing with a “challenge” in Ladakh however at the same time added that your house needs to have “complete self-confidence” that the armed forces will constantly rise to the obstacle and make the nation proud.
Firmly articulating the nation’s position on the tense border row in eastern Ladakh, he stated Beijing has actually been very plainly communicated that any effort to “unilaterally” change the status quo along the Line of Actual Control is not at all appropriate.
” I will not hesitate to show this august House that we are facing a difficulty in Ladakh and I prompt your home to pass a resolution in assistance of our militaries who have been safeguarding our motherland at fantastic heights and a lot of severe weather,” Mr Singh stated.
Congress’ leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury stated leaders of the party wished to speak in Lok Sabha in support of the militaries and their bravery, but were not enabled to do so.
” The nation is supreme for our Congress party and we take pride in the bravery and guts of our armed forces. We wanted to speak in favour of our armed forces and had sought just one minute, but were not permitted to talk. There are numerous questions however we know that this federal government does not wish to answer any,” he told press reporters.
Pointing Out the 1962 war with China, Mr Chowdhury said that BJP leader late Atal Bihari Vajpayee wished to talk about the issue in Parliament and the then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru assembled a session of Parliament and the concern was gone over.
” We wished to see the very same tradition continued, however we know that this government is not happy to discuss the China matter in Parliament,” he stated.
Congress chief representative Randeep Surjewala stated the entire country is proud of the Indian army and “we are safe only because the armed forces are standing versus the Chinese at the borders”.
” However where is the prime minister. Why has the prime minister run away from confessing in Parliament the failure of the political management. Has China captured Indian territory? Depsang plains, Pangong Tso Lake, Lipu Lake and Y-Junction, has there been any disobedience by China?” he asked.
Mr Surjewala asked how many kilometres has China caught and when will Prime Minister Modi throw away the Chinese from Indian territory.
