The Congress has attacked the Center with Chinese ‘infiltration’ in Arunachal Pradesh
The Congress on Sunday accused China of infiltrating Arunachal Pradesh and questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on the issue.
Congress on Sunday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of cheating and deliberately distorting the alleged Chinese incursion into Arunachal Pradesh and questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on the issue.
Sharing two satellite images from any part of Arunachal Pradesh, Congress spokesperson Dr Abhishek M Singhvi claimed that China had built 60 structures inside Indian territory. HT could not confirm the authenticity of the two pictures. He also pointed out the conflict between the positions of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in this regard.
“All is well and all construction is underway on the Chinese side of the border,” Chief of Defense Staff Bipin Rawat said in a conclave. But Foreign Minister Arindam Bagchi said on the same day that China had built illegally.
“On an issue like this, can we bridge this double-voice-hypocrisy-unimaginable-unforgivable difference between two important and higher ministries, the foreign and defense ministries?” He added.
Condemning Modi’s silence on the issue, the Congress leader said: “I urge the Prime Minister to be honest and transparent and to address this huge national security issue immediately.”
BJP national spokesman Tom Vadakkan countered: “Now that the farmers’ problems have been resolved, the Congress is fabricating a false statement about China’s territorial expansion. The MEA and the MoD have made it very clear that there has been no intrusion.”
“This is a frustrating time for Congress ahead of the elections and that’s why they’re using China to reach out to the people,” he said.
