PM insulted soldiers when he said nobody intruded into Ladakh: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi : Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi once again blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi of insulting the soldiers with his comments that nobody intruded into Indian territory in Ladakh, asking him to give a clear picture on when will Chinese be thrown out.
Addressing his first rally for Bihar Assembly Elections, Rahul Gandhi claimed that the Chinese Army has well enough settled into Indian territory.
"They have seized 1,200 km of our land. But when the Chinese army intruded, why did our prime minister insult our soldiers by saying that nobody entered into the Indian side?" he said.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also addressed a rally in Bihar and said that the sons of Bihar laid down their lives during Galwan Valley clash but did not let "Mother India bow her head."
"The question is, Modi ji, when will you throw out the Chinese soldiers sitting in our territory," Gandhi said.
He also attacked the Centre over the migrant crisis triggered by the pandemic-induced lockdown, alleging when workers from Bihar were being "chased away" from other states the prime minister did nothing to help them.
"He bows before the labourers but does not help them when they need it," he said.
Bihar will vote for a new 243-member assembly on October 28, November 3 and 7. The results will be declared on November 10.
