Today, Gandhi posted a news report on Chinese mouthpiece Global Times’s praise for the Prime Minster over his comments on Friday’s all-party meet.
The accompanying tweet read, “China killed our soldiers. China took our land. Then, why is China praising Mr Modi during this conflict?”
In a report titled “India knows it can’t have a war with China’,” published yesterday, the Global Times a leading media from China had quoted experts who said that PM Modi is “playing with words in order to avoid an escalation”.
“China’s capability not only in terms of the military, but also overall and international influence, is superior to India’s,” the report read.

Also PM Modi’s “assertion that Indian forces can take all necessary steps is a show of strength for domestic audiences to appease the Indian masses and boost the Indian troops’ morale,” the report disclosed .
Mr Gandhi pinpointed Prime Minister over the June 15 violence at Ladakh’s Galwan Valley – the the worst face-off since 1967, in which 20 Indian soldiers had died and 76 were injured in a clash with Chinese troops.

“While we have given a free hand to our armed forces, diplomatically too we have made our stand clear to China. India wants peace and friendship but protecting its sovereignty is supreme,” the Prime Minister had said.
The day after, Mr Gandhi suggested that PM Modi surrendered Indian territory to China. Yesterday, posting an article in a foreign publication, he tweeted, “Narendra Modi Is actually Surender Modi”.
The Prime Minister’s Office said it was an attempt to give a “mischievous interpretation” to PM Modi’s comments.
