Questioning PM Modi on Ladakh irresponsible, they use Rahul Gandhi’s remarks against us: BJP

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra has hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi who questioned PM Modi on the killings of 20 Indian soldiers in Ladakh. Sambit Patra has said Rahul Gandhi is acting irresponsibly by calling the Prime Minister and questioning him.

Rahul Gandhi is acting irresponsibly by speaking against Prime Minister Modi in such a time when 20 of our soldiers sacrificed their lives for the country,” said Sambit Patra.

He added, “Rahul Gandhi should have waited for the all-part meeting on the issue.” Prime Minister Modi has called for an all-party meeting on June 19. The clashes between soldiers of India and China took place on the night of June 15.

Sambit Patra has said, “The lack of faith in the Indian government that Rahul Gandhi has shown in these times is irresponsible. You should realise that when you are speaking against the Prime Minister, it is not against an individual man, but against the leader of the country.”

The BJP spokesperson also said that Congress must have forgotten about the agreement it signed with China.

BJP leader Ram Madhav said, “Opposition's behaviour is very unfortunate. When the entire nation should stand with the Army and the government, it is unfortunate that the main opposition party issues statements that benefit India's enemies. They use Rahul Gandhi's statement to form their argument.”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday questioned why Indian soldiers were sent "unarmed to martyrdom" in Ladakh and how dare China kill them, a day after asking the defence minister why he did not name China in his tweet and why it took him two days to condole the deaths of 20 Army personnel.

Rahul Gandhi also shared on Twitter an interview of a retired Army officer who has worked in the area where the India-China violent stand-off took place on Monday night.

Attacking Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Rahul Gandhi asked why did he "insult" the Army by not naming China over the killing of 20 Indian soldiers in eastern Ladakh's Galwan Valley.
