PM Modi, not Rajnath Singh, must answer on border issue in Parliament: Congress

New Delhi, 18/12: The Congress on Sunday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “running away” from a debate in Parliament on the situation along the border with China and said he and not the Defence Minister must answer on this issue.



The opposition party also alleged that the Prime Minister does not utter the word “China” and asked whether the government was “silent” due to its “close ties” with that country.


The attack on the government came days after Indian Army personnel clashed with Chinese soldiers in the Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh.


At a press conference in Rajasthan’s Dausa after the morning leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said then-Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi went to China in 1988 “when we were strong at the borders and after that visit bilateral ties became stronger.”
