Timid and docile response to China won’t do: Rahul Gandhi

Prime News, National, International, Border, Defence, Politics, New Delhi, May 21:- After reports of China building a bridge along the Indian frontier emerged, Rahul Gandhi on Friday (May 20) accused the Centre of a “timid and docile” response.

Rahul said in a tweet, “China builds 1st bridge on Pangong, GOI: We are monitoring the situation. China builds 2nd bridge on Pangong, GOI: We are monitoring the situation. India’s national security & territorial integrity is non-negotiable. A timid & docile response won’t do. PM must defend the nation.” he said

Congress has slammed the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for saying that the Defence Ministry will reply to this.

MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said on Thursday (May 19): “I have already said that the regular talks we have been having about LAC are ongoing. Chinese Foreign Minister also came and we had talks with him. We conveyed to him our expectations. You may recall that our External Affairs Minister (EAM) also explained how the conversation took place and the issues that were discussed.”

Bagchi added that reports of a bridge is a military issue and he will not be able to comment on the matter.

“And as we have said, we believe the entire area is occupied. Ministry of Defence will be able to tell you better the details and its implications. But if there is anything else to share, we will tell you,” he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
