Rahul Gandhi Pokes Modi’s Silence on China ..

Rahul Gandhi asked the government to come clean on the border standoff with China and tell the country what exactly is happening “as its silence is fuelling speculation and uncertainty”.
 
“The government’s silence about the border situation with China is fuelling massive speculation and uncertainty at a time of crisis,” he said earlier.
 
This is after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had on Tuesday said that a “sizeable number” of Chinese troops have moved into eastern Ladakh and India too has taken all necessary steps to deal with the situation.
 
Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday took to Twitter to ask, “Can GOI (Government of India) please confirm that no Chinese soldiers have entered India (sic).”
 
Troops of India and China were engaged in a major standoff for over three weeks in Pangong Tso, Galwan Valley, Demchok and Daulat Beg Oldie in eastern Ladakh, in what is turning out to be the biggest confrontation between the two countries after the Doklam episode in 2017.
 
The situation deteriorated after around 250 Chinese and Indian soldiers were engaged in a violent face-off on the evening of May 5 in Pangong Tso which spilled over to the next day before the two sides agreed to “disengage”.
 
However, the standoff still continued.
 
The trigger for the face-off was China’s stiff opposition to India laying a key road in the Finger area around the Pangong Tso besides construction of another road connecting the Darbuk-Shayok-Daulat Beg Oldie road in Galwan Valley.
 
Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said bilateral talks were on at military and diplomatic levels with China to resolve the row.

The BJP led Modi government has been maintaining that talks at military and diplomatic levels are on to resolve the row.
