New Delhi: Jairam Ramesh, a member of the Congress party, said that the strategies adopted by the Modi government to prevent Chinese intrusion in Ladakh since May 2020 can be summarized as denial, diversion, lying and justification. He said this in response to the foreign minister’s comment on the China issue.
Union External Affairs Minister Jaishankar had said a few days ago that for political reasons, some people are spreading lies that they have now taken possession of the land that China seized in 1962. This accusation of the Union Minister against the Congress was seen as against Rahul Gandhi.
In this situation, Jairam Ramesh, the secretary and senior leader of the media wing of the Congress party, responded to the Union Minister’s comment on Monday. In a statement on Twitter, he said: The main strategies adopted by the Modi government regarding the intrusion of the Chinese government in Ladakh since May 2020 can be summarized as denial, diversion, lying and justification. External Affairs Minister Jaishankar’s recent comments attacking the Congress party is also an attempt to cover up the failure of the Modi government on the China policy issue. Since 2020, India has lost the right to operate 26 of the 65 monitoring centers in Ladakh.
India’s war with China in 1962 to protect its land cannot be compared with the present facts. India has accepted China’s aggression after 2020. Due to this India has lost its personality for several km areas.
Sometimes they talk about certain territories occupied by China in 1962. They create the impression that it happened before, but they don’t tell the truth.
It is childish that the Indian External Affairs Minister indirectly accused Rahul Gandhi of meeting the Chinese ambassador in 2017. Doesn’t the Leader of Opposition have the right to meet foreign officials regarding trade, investment, defense for the benefit of the country?
The Modi government should have been honest about the China crisis from the beginning. It should have created confidence in the opposition parties by discussing this in the Parliamentary Standing Committee and holding a debate in the Parliament. At the very least, only key political leaders should have been given detailed explanations on the matter.
It is unfortunate that the External Affairs Minister has repeatedly stated that he does not know why China is trespassing so close to the Line of Control when there is a cordial relationship between Prime Minister Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping. He said this.
