New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched another attack on the Centre over its approach to the border tensions with China, and asked what exactly transpired that Beijing “took away” India’s land when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is at the helm of affairs.
Gandhi cited a report by The Wire, which quoted defence expert Ajai Shukla as saying that the government is misleading the media on the Chinese disengagement along the LAC.
“What has happened that under Modi ji’s rule, China took away Mother India’s sacred land?” Gandhi asked in a tweet.
ऐसा क्या हुआ कि मोदी जी के रहते भारत माता की पवित्र ज़मीन को चीन ने छीन लिया?https://t.co/EkSAbWUUaU

In an interview to The Wire on Saturday , Shukla, who is the strategic affairs editor at Business Standard, said he was “very confident” of his claim that there has been no disengagement at Hot Springs and Gogra Heights area along the LAC.
