Attack on Rahul bid to hide failings: Capt

Chandigarh, July 7

Taking strong exception to BJP president JP Nadda's attack on Rahul Gandhi over the India-China standoff, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said it was a brazen attempt to distract public attention from the Centre's failure in Galwan valley.

Terming it a "diversionary tactic", the Chief Minister said having failed to respond to his persistent and relevant questions on the Galwan valley issue, the BJP-led Central Government was desperately trying to distract people with its personal attack on Rahul. Not just Rahul, but the entire country wanted to know what went wrong in Galwan valley on June 15, he added.

In fact, said Capt Amarinder, Rahul had been discussing the China issue with him for a long time, and had been concerned about the matter even while the Central Government was vehemently denying any stand-off in Galwan.

Pointing to the latest statements from the Prime Minister on no intrusion having taken place in the region, he asked how the Chinese were now backing off without having entered Indian territory in the first place. These were the kind of questions being raised by Rahul, he noted, adding that instead of answering them, the Centre continued to be in denial even now. — TNS
