Congress attacks PM Modi with his 2013 tweet on India-China
New Delhi : The Congress made an extra effort to go back in time and pull out a tweet by then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi over disengagement of Indian and Chinese troops from contested areas along the LAC (Line of Actual Control) in eastern Ladakh.
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala reminded PM Narendra Modi of his reaction in 2013 to a similar move when India did the same thing happened now on LAC.
"Respected Prime Minister, do you remember your words? Do your words mean anything? Will you tell us why our forces are retracting from our land? The country seeks answers," he wrote.
In May 2013, PM Modi had raised questions via a tweet, "China withdraws its forces but I wonder why Indian forces are withdrawing from Indian territory? Why did we retreat?"
On Sunday, China started dismantling their tents in the Galwan valley region and started to go back from the region.
The Army reciprocated by moving its soldiers back by a similar distance, despite being already firmly within Indian territory, to create a buffer zone between the troops of either side.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor also made a sarcastic comment on PM Narendra Modi's old tweet. He wrote, "I stand with Modiji on this. The PM must answer his question".
