New Delhi:

Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday attacked the BJP government over the latest clash between Indian and Chinese troops in Arunachal Pradesh.

“Modi Govt should be honest about Chinese transgressions and construction at all points near the LAC, since April 2020. The government must give the nation confidence by discussing this issue in parliament,” he posted on Twitter.

Last week, Indian and Chinese troops briefly clashed at the Line of Actual Control in the Tawang area of ​​Arunachal Pradesh. This is the first reported clash this year between troops from the two nations. The big clash in the Galwan Valley took place in June 2020, when 20 Indian soldiers died for the country and more than 40 Chinese soldiers were killed or injured.

Since then, Congress has repeatedly called on the government to reveal details of Chinese incursions and constructions near the Line of Actual Control. The party also criticized the government’s handling of the clashes.

In January this year, Rahul Gandhi demanded that the Prime Minister break his silence on Galwan. “Our tricolor is doing well in Galwan. There should be a response to China. Modi ji, let’s break the silence,” Mr. Gandhi tweeted.

He made another reference to Galwan during his Bharat Jodo Yatra last month, saying Prime Minister Modi had ‘insulted’ the sacrifice of Colonel Santosh Babu, who died in battle with Chinese troops, by lying about the China’s Intrusion into Indian Territory.

“You remember Santosh Babu who sacrificed his life for the country. I want to remind you that the Prime Minister of India, after Santosh Babu became a martyr, told the people that China was not encroaching on the territory Indian,” Gandhi said at a rally. as the Bharat Jodo Yatra passed through Telangana.

“If China did not encroach on Indian territory, then how did Santosh Babu become a martyr? The Prime Minister insulted Santosh Babu,” he added.

The government argues that the clashes are due to “different perceptions” of the LAC.

In October 2020, shortly after the Galwan clashes, Union Minister Rajnath Singh told the Lok Sabha that the different perceptions on the LAC were the basis for repeated flare-ups at the border where “Chinese and Indian perceptions of the LAC overlap”.
