Prime News, National (New Delhi), July 17:- Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday once again slammed the Narendra Modi government over the face-off with China in Ladakh. He said China chose this time to intrude in our land as India’s foreign policy, economy and relationship with neighbouring countries are disrupted.
In the first video of his series, Rahul Gandhi explained the reasons for China ‘selecting this time to intrude in our land’.
He has been critical of the government over the handling of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) situation with China after the killing of 20 Indian soldiers, including an officer on June 15 in Ladakh’s Galwan area by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). He has questioned the government over its claim that China did not occupy or intrude into India.
Firing salvos at the government over China’s intrusion in India, Rahul Gandhi said, “The question is why the Chinese choose this particular time to move. What is it about India’s situation that has made China act in such an aggressive way. What is about this moment of time to have the confidence that they can move against a country like India?”
The Congress MP from Kerala’s Wayanad said that to understand this, one has to go to multiple spaces. He said that the countries are protected not by a particular way, but by a confluence of systems of foreign relationships, neighbourhood, economy and the feeling and vision people have.
“And what has happened over the last six years that all those areas that India has been disturbed and disrupted,” he said, adding, “And I will cover all those.”
Talking about India’s foreign policy, the Congress leader said, “Our relationship with outside world used to be with multiple countries. We had a relationship with the US, strategic partnership with the US, I will say and that is very important. We had a relationship with Russia and Europe and these countries used to manoeuvre in the world. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
