Does Congress have faith in Army statement on China or not: BJP | India News

NEW DELHI: The BJP took a hit at the Congress Monday for his criticism of the government over the alleged Chinese infiltration, questioning whether the opposition party doesn’t trust the army’s statement.
After Congress questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on ‘increasing Chinese infiltration’ into Indian territory, BJP spokesman Sudhanshu Trivedi claimed that Congress leader Gaurav Gogoi had also talked about former Chief of Defense Staff Bipin Rawat rejecting such claims.
“I want to ask Congress whether they trust the Indian Army or not, or whether they trust the Indian Army Chief’s response or not? Or do you want to play politics on his statement” , he asked at a press conference. .
Former Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that China’s “increasing infiltration” into Indian territory and the prime minister’s “silence” over it are “very damaging” to the country.
In another press conference, Congress leader Gaurav Gogoi called on Modi to give the nation confidence over China’s alleged transgressions in India and asked him to address concerns over national security, integrity and sovereignty.
Replying to Congress after Gogoi used the initials (DDLJ) of a popular Hindi film to attack the government, Trivedi invoked the initials of another famous film (QSQT) to say that this aptly describes the internal situation within the opposition party. “Qayamat ka hal hai” (It’s like an apocalypse within the party), he says.
He was apparently referring to the internal rebellion that plagued the Congress, most recently in Goa.
Gogoi had said that Modi’s strategy on the border crisis with China could be summed up as “DDLJ: Deny, Distract, Lie, Justify”.
Trivedi also attacked Congress over the alleged involvement of its leaders in the national herald money laundering case, saying it must be the only party whose president and former president are out on bail in a corruption case.
While Congress failed to help Associated Journals Limited, a company that published the National Herald and was linked to the party, repay its Rs 90 crore when it was in power for 10 years between 2004 and 2014, the Rajiv Foundation Gandhi received more than Rs 100 donations from various sources including ministries during the period, he alleged.
“You provided so much help to a foundation linked to the (Gandhi) family but did not help an indebted company. Was it because you wanted to seize the assets of the indebted company,” he said. asked and demanded that Congress answer for it.
The Congress blamed the BJP’s political vendetta for the case against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul.
