NEW DELHI, Feb 12, 2021, Times Now. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Friday, launched a scathing personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and questioned why ‘Mr Modi’ has given ‘our territory’ to the Chinese. Addressing a press conference, Gandhi accused the Prime Minister of being a ‘coward, who cannot stand up to the Chinese’ and alleged that the government is ‘betraying the sacrifice of the Army’, Times Now News reported.

“The PM is a coward who cannot stand up to the Chinese. He is spitting on the sacrifice of our army. He is betraying the sacrifice of our army. Nobody in India should be allowed to do it,” Gandhi said.

Commenting on Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement in the Parliament, where he elaborated upon the disengagement process in eastern Ladakh, Gandhi said that Singh ‘didn’t speak a word on the most important strategic area – Depsang Plains – from where China had entered’.

He must answer to the country: Gandhi
“The truth is that the Prime Minister has given away the Indian territory to China. He must answer to the country… Yesterday, Defence Min made a statement on the situation in Eastern Ladakh. Now, we find our troops are now going to be stationed at Finger 3. Finger 4 is our territory. Now, we’ve moved from Finger 4 to Finger 3. Why has Mr Modi given up our territory to the Chinese,” he said.
