As Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew into Ladakh on Friday to ship a powerful message to China weeks after a conflict left 20 Indian troopers useless, he confronted a renewed assault from Congress chief Rahul Gandhi who questioned the PM’s assertion over Chinese intrusion.
While the folks of the Himalayan area declare that China has taken their land, the PM says in any other case and somebody is “lying”, Rahul Gandhi tweeted. He tweeted a video of residents of Ladakh accusing China of occupying Indian territory within the area.
China took our land.
Nobody took our land.
Obviously, somebody is mendacity. pic.twitter.com/kWNQQhjlY7

The former Congress chief’s dig got here on a day when PM Modi visited Nimu, a ahead location in Leh to fulfill personnel of the Army, Air Force and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), days after a violent face-off between Indian and Chinese troops in jap Ladakh.
Accompanied by Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, the Prime Minister reached Leh round 9.30 am. Under stress to reply to Chinese aggression, PM Modi had stated after the conflict final month that the Chinese weren’t occupying any Indian territory or posts.
“The age of expansionism is over, this is the age of development. History is witness that expansionist forces have either lost or were forced to turn back,” the Prime Minister said on Friday, not mentioning China. Addressing troops, he stated: “The weak can never accomplish peace, the brave do.”
Rahul Gandhi has been scaling up his campaign in opposition to the federal government with near-daily assaults since Indian troopers died in a violent face-off with Chinese forces alongside the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh on June 15.
Mr Gandhi has accused the Prime Minister of “surrendering” Indian land to China and “lying” in regards to the border standoff.
The BJP has disregarded the assaults, with social gathering chief JP Nadda saying, “A dynast throws tantrums and his courtiers peddle a fake narrative… The nation is united and supportive of our armed forces. This is the time for unity and solidarity. Relaunch of ‘the scion’ for the nth time can wait.”
