New Delhi: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday launched a fresh attack at the BJP-led government at the Centre over Chinese issue and claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “clean chit” to China is costing the nation’s territorial integrity.
“Modi government’s continued denial of illegal occupation and construction of infrastructure by Chinese has ‘endangered’ our borders,” Kharge wrote in a tweet.
Attacking the PM, the Congress chief said, “Your ‘clean chit’ to China is costing the nation’s territorial Integrity.”
Kharge further said that Modi must take nation and parliament into confidence over this issue.
The Congress has been demanding the government to take concrete steps over alleged Chinese incursions in various border areas, including in the Northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The party had accused the government of running away from a debate on Chinese issue in the recently concluded Winter Session of the Parliament.
