Army veteran schools those who raise questions with regards to Doklam standoff

Rahul Gandhi, continuing his habit of scoring own goals, stated during an event in London at the International Institute of Strategic Studies that he has no details of Dokalm that is precisely why he wouldn’t be able to respond to the question of how different his approach would have been in solving the crisis. It was proven later, that aside from being a self-goal, Rahul Gandhi was also being untruthful about him not having all the details to comment on the Doklam issue.

Some would find such ignorance about a geopolitical issue from the president of the principal opposition party in the world’s largest democracy astonishing but Rahul has time and time again proved himself to be at best disconnected from facts and at worst misinformed.

Following Rahul Gandhi’s comment on Doklam, MJ Akbar, the MoS for External Affairs on Saturday took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi by questioning the IQ of those who criticized the government’s handling of the Doklam crisis.

The MoS stated that he wishes that some of the people who seem to be talking had a better sense of what ‘governance’ is.

“I seriously do not wish to use any harsh words because it may be inappropriate, but who clearly prove over and over again that they have no knowledge, no understanding, no IQ sense of what governance is all about,” he added.

It is not only the MoS who have taken an exception to Rahul’s comments. Lt. Gen(R) VG Khandare also took an exception to the ill-informed comments made by Rahul. The retired army man stated that during the stand-off the Indians were not sweating but the Chinese were. He refused to comment on it further as the bilateral relations between Indian and China are getting better.

The general also provided a very interesting explanation, he pointed out that there is a difference between opinions and informed opinions. Thus, people who are responsible for taking such decisions should be encouraged and one should have faith in that system.
