This isn’t the first time when Rahul Gandhi has criticised PM over Chinese controversy. He has repeatedly asked questions to PM about the standoff with China. He said that PM’s lies made sure that China gets our land.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted,”Everybody believes in the capability and valour of the Indian army. Except the PM: Whose cowardice allowed China to take our land. Whose lies will ensure they keep it.”
