Rahul Gandhi launched a fresh attack on PM Modi and claimed that “the PM has given away sacred Indian territory to China”.
In a press conference at the AICC headquarters before leaving for his tractor rally in Rajasthan, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi accused the government of compromising the previous demand or status quo ante as of April 2020.
He argued that the Indian army held Finger 4 area in Ladakh along the contested Line of Actual Control (LAC) but now it will move back to its permanent position near Finger 3.
Gandhi’s salvoes come a day after defence minister Rajnath Singh informed the Lok Sabha that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will retreat to its base east of Finger 8 on the north bank of Pangong Tso, the Indian Army will move back to its permanent position near Finger 3.
Gandhi asked why the Chinese had not withdrawn from the Depsang Plains and the Gogra and Hot Springs areas.
