Congress gives adjournment motion in Lok Sabha over ‘tension at Indo-China border’, even after Army Chief rubbished claims

This is not the first time Congress has tried to question the armed forces as well as Indian government on matters relating to China.

The Congress party today gave an adjournment motion in the Lok Sabha over “tension at Indo-China border” despite Army Chief clarifying it that there is no such situation.

Last week General Rawat clarified said that had been no Chinese intrusion. He was addressing the reports of Chinese intrusion on the Line of Actual Control(LAC). Some Tibetans had hoisted the Tibetan flag on the occasion of Dalai Lama’s birthday on July 6th, which got the Chinese troop curious.

“Celebrations were underway on our side by some Tibetans in Demchok sector. Based on that, to see what was happening, some Chinese also came opposite. Everything is normal,” he had said on 13th July.

However, despite the clarifications issued by the COAS, Congress gave an adjournment motion over non-existent ‘tension’ at the Indo-China border.

Not the first time

This is not the first time Congress has tried to question the armed forces and Indian government on matters relating to China. Following the 2017 Doklam standoff, Congress had actively fanned media speculations over renewed Chinese aggression at the standoff site. The Congress indulged in it despite the government’s clarification of the unchanged status quo.

On 8th July 2017, Rahul Gandhi had a meeting with the Chinese Ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui which was not made public. When some media houses reported the meeting, the Congress party termed it fake news. But later the meeting was confirmed by the Chinese embassy on its website.

The above happened when both the countries were engaged in the Doklam Standoff, which lasted till August 2017. Earlier this year, the then Congress President Rahul Gandhi had accidentally revealed that he had a secret meeting with the Chinese ministers during his Kailash Mansarovar visit.
