New Delhi, Jun 22: Continuing his tirade again Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the India China border stand-off, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday wondered why was the Chinese media praising Mr Modi’s comments at the All Party meeting.
In a post on social media, Rahul, quoting a report published in a Chinese daily about China’s perception of PM Modi’s speech after an all-party meeting on India China border stand-off, said,’China killed our soldiers. China took our land. Then, why is China praising PM Modi during this conflict?’
A report in Chinese government-mouthpiece Global Times had praised the remarks made by the Prime Minister at the All Party meeting, called in to discuss the situation at Galwan Valley, with respect to China.
During the meeting, PM Modi had referred to the Galwan Valley violent-face-off and said, “Na wahaan koi hamaari seema mein ghus gaya hai aur na hi koi ghusa hua hai, na hi hamaari koi post kisi doosre ke kabze mein hai (Neither has anyone from there entered our side of the border, nor is any of our post in control by anyone).”
In its report, Global Times said that the statement validated China’s position that Indian troops were responsible for the violent face-off and that Galwan Valley was Chinese territory.
The news organisation welcomed PM Modi’s statement and quoted Chinese experts as saying that this will help in restoring bilateral ties.
