Rahul Gandhi caught sleeping in Lok Sabha during discussion on Chinese threat to India’s security

Earlier when he was caught sleeping and media reported it, Congress supporters had come out in defence of Rahul Gandhi. Some claimed that he was in deep meditation while others candidly admitting that owing to his relentless efforts and work, he deserves the 'relaxation'.

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was today found sleeping in the Lok Sabha while the leader of opposition Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary was slamming the government on the issue of the Chinese threat to India’s security.

Raising the perpetual threat posed by the two hostile neighbours Pakistan and China, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said, “India is destined to be surrounded by two hostile neighbours-Pakistan and China who pose an inimical threat to India. We can change history but cannot change geography. Pakistan backs terrorists but China backs Pakistan. We have an aggressive approach in dealing with threats emanating from Pakistan but why do we have a soft approach in dealing with China?”

Chowdhury also raised the recent security breach at the Andaman and Nicobar Island where a Chinese vessel Shi Yan 1 was reportedly found carrying out ‘research activities’ in the Indian waters. It was, however, subsequently driven away by the Indian Navy. Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury also gave an adjournment notice over the “Chinese Intrusion in Arunachal Pradesh” claiming that China has illegally taken hold of 40-50Kms of Arunachal Pradesh.

However, during this discussion over issues of national security raised by his own party, Rahul Gandhi was seen sitting behind the Congress MP Chowdhury and blissfully taking a nap. Perhaps, the security of the country with regards to Chinese incursions is not on the priority list of the Wayanad MP, who has been known for clandestine meetings with Chinese ministers and delegates on numerous occasions.

During the Doklam standoff, while Congress and Rahul Gandhi himself were relentlessly slamming the central government for not handling the issue well, Rahul had also met the Chinese ambassador and Congress had tried to lie about it. Their initial denial over the meeting was later exposed when the Chinese embassy’s website had posted about the meeting.

This is not the first time that Rahul Gandhi has been caught sleeping during the Lok Sabha proceedings. There have been multiple occasions on which Rahul Gandhi was seen dozing off in the midst of Lok Sabha debates.

In 2016, media claimed that they caught Rahul Gandhi “sleeping” during a debate in the Lok Sabha on the issue of atrocities on Dalits. During that time, Congress sympathisers and supporters had come out in defence of Rahul Gandhi, with some claiming that he was in deep meditation while others candidly admitting that owing to his relentless efforts and work, he deserves the ‘relaxation’.
