Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said that the government must come clean on the border face-off between India and China along the Line of Actual Control.
“The Government’s silence about the border situation with China is fueling massive speculation and uncertainty at a time of crisis. GOI must come clean and tell India exactly what’s happening,” Gandhi tweeted on Friday.
The comments come two days after the Congress described the situation in Ladakh and tension with China as a matter of “serious national concern” and called on the government to take the nation into confidence and address the concerns of the people.
Mr Gandhi made similar requests on Tuesday, reminding the government that “transparency was needed” at this critical juncture. The Congress MP also refrained commenting further on the matter, saying he needed more information to do so.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat have all met and briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this issue.
