Rahul Gandhi On Twitter: Why Did India Allow China To ‘Justify’ Galwan Valley Clashes?
The Congress scion also asked why India hasn’t claimed territorial sovereignty over the location.
A day after China retreated 1.5 kilometres into the Galwan region of Ladakh, Rahul Gandhi has levelled sharp criticism against the Government of India through his Twitter account. The former Congress President has asked why India has not insisted on restoring the status quo along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), and as a result, allowed China to “justify” the Galwan Valley clashes. “National interest is paramount. GOI’s duty is to protect it. Then, 1. Why has Status Quo Ante not been insisted on? 2. Why is China allowed to justify the murder of 20 unarmed jawans in our territory? 3. Why is there no mention of the territorial sovereignty of Galwan valley?” read the tweet of Rahul Gandhi.
Mr Gandhi was joined by Congress MP, Shashi Tharoor, in questioning the government. He said, “Disengagement is welcome, but means little unless the status quo ante is restored. Otherwise, we’ll yet again see both sides declare peace, with China having changed the facts on the ground & moved the LAC closer to where it wants. The May-June status cannot become the ‘new normal.’”
