The Congress on June 25 asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi why has not India gained anything from the “strange bonhomie” which it claimed he shared with China. Following the PTI inputs here, Seeking to turn the tables on the ruling party, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera stated that the ruling party also shared bonhomie with the Communist Party of China (CPC) with several party-level exchanges taking place in the past, PTI news agency reported.
Moreover, The Congress spokesperson, Pawan Khera sought to know whether India’s borders have become safe after these exchanges in the last many years. Khera asked what has the country gained out of these exchange delegations and why are the borders insecure despite the bonds that the two ruling parties of India and China share with each other.
“There is a strange kind of bonhomie between Narendra Modi and China, a two decade old bonhomie. Why doesn’t the country get the benefit of that bonhomie,” he asked at a virtual press conference. He stated all that the Congress will continue to question is about the political will that just does not get visible when it comes to China.
He also asked that, “Whatever is happening on the border today, is it despite the bonhomie which you have with China, or is it because of the bonhomie which you have with China. The country needs to know,” he asked. “We do want to ask you, if as president of the party, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and Amit Shah have been sending delegations, strengthening the bonds between the Communist Party of China and the BJP,” The Congress spokesperson asked.
Further, “What has the country gained out of these bonds? Why are the borders insecure despite these bonds that you have,” he asked. The ruling has hit out at the Congress for signing an MoU with China’s Communist Party and has questioned its “bond” with the ruling party in China. Khera also asked what role did the India Foundation, an organisation run by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval’s son has in strengthening the bonds with China, PTI news agency reported.
The congress spokesperson also asked that, “Why does India Foundation keep visiting these countries? Who do they meet? What”s the outcome? What”s the role of NSA Ajit Doval’s son- Shaurya Doval? He keeps attending these meetings through India Foundation? These are important questions in the light of what is happening,” Pawan Khera asked.
Following the PTI report here, He stated that the prime minister is showing “red eyes” to those who are asking him questions instead of showing them to the enemy. “It is time to stand with the Army and show red eyes to China,” he added. The Congress leader stated that the questions will be asked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi especially when there are definitive reports, satellite images of incursions in the Ladakh region of India by the Chinese.
Despite the same, The Congress spokesperson also alleged that China laps up the comment of Modi and uses it across the world that the Indian prime minister says that China is in its own territory and Galwan is theirs. “After a lot of pressure, Prime Minister Office (PMO) contradicted what the prime minister stated. This kind of a goof up is unpardonable,” Pawan Khera alleged.
