Congress Quotes PM Modi’s 2013 Tweet To Corner Him

Congress Quotes PM Modi's 2013 Tweet To Corner Him

After the withdrawal of the Chinese army, Indian National Congress has cornered the government over the retreat of Indian soldiers from the territory. The party has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi some questions, citing an old tweet of his own. Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala retweeted Modi’s tweet with reference to China in 2013, saying that the country needs answers to these questions. Modi then questioned the government on the retreat of Indian soldiers.

Surjewala, reminding the PM of his old statement, asked, ‘Respected Prime Minister, do you remember your words? Do your words matter? Will you tell us why our forces are retreating from our land? He further wrote, ‘The country want answers.’

In fact, Modi had said in a tweet in May 2013, ‘China is removing its troops, but I wonder why Indian soldiers are withdrawing from their territory? Why are we moving away? ‘ When Modi tweeted this, he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat and a probable Prime Ministerial candidate from BJP for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. For this reason Modi was very active on the issues of national politics.

Both Armies Started Retreating Back

In a conversation between the military commanders of India and China on 30 June, a framework was agreed to call back both sides along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. It came into force after negotiations between the national security advisors of the two countries. Under this, Chinese troops retreated 1.5 km from the site of the bloody skirmish on 15 June in Galvan Valley. After that India also started recalling its troops.
