Chidambaram dares J P Nadda to ask Modi on 2,264 Chinese incursions


The war of words between Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on the Ladakh face-off is getting shriller with each passing day.

BJP president JP Nadda attacked former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Monday for his remarks on the June 15 face-off in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed. He asked the Dr Singh and his Congress party to not insult India’s soldiers and claimed that 600 Chinese incursions took place during the former prime minister’s tenure.

Today, Congress leader P Chidambaram hit back saying Nadda should ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the 2,264 Chinese incursions since 2015.

“BJP President @JPNadda asked ex-PM Dr Manmohan Singh to explain the 600 Chinese incursions into India between 2010 and 2013. Yes, there were incursions but no Indian territory was occupied by China and no lives of Indian soldiers were lost in violent clashes,” Mr Chidambaram said in a series of tweets.

“Will @JPNadda please ask the present PM to explain the 2264 Chinese incursions since 2015? I bet he will not dare to ask that question,” the Congress leader said in another tweet. He said Mr Singh and his party should stop “insulting” our forces repeatedly and questioning their valour.

JP Nadda today attacked Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of trying to “divide the nation” and “demoralise” the armed forces during crucial situations. “First, Congress signs MoU with the Chinese Communist Party. Then, Congress surrenders land to China. During Doklam issue, Rahul Gandhi secretly goes to the Chinese embassy. During crucial situations, Rahul Gandhi tries to divide the nation and demoralise armed forces. Effects of MoU?” Mr Nadda tweeted today.
