BJP’s RS member Shiv Pratap Shukla seeks apology from Cong for flaying Modi
The bitter trading of charges between the BJP and the Congress continued uninterrupted on Tuesday on the stand-off on the India-China border with BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Shiv Pratap Shukla seeking apology from the Congress for repeatedly criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his statement on China.
Asserting that India has given a clear message to China under Prime
Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP leader said, “ I feel that India has succeeded in both diplomatic and military level talks. The Prime Minister’s recent visit to Leh also boosted the morale of jawans”, he said.
Shukla slammed Congress for seeking apology from the Prime Minister for his last statement on China and called for a reverse apology from the opposition party.
“I think Congress should apologise to the country for accusing PM Modi so many times , who is deeply associated with the public”, the RS MP was quoted by news agency ANI as saying.
The Congress demanded an apology after the reports that Chinse troops were moving back from their current held position at Galwan valley in Eastern Ladakh. Congress sought to contrast the development with “no incursions” statement of the Prime Minister in the all-party meet, last month.
BJP and the Congress have been verbally clashing with each other on the daily basis on the India-China face-off on the Line of Actual Control with BJP portraying the latest developments on the border as victory for the Modi-Government whereas the Congress doubting government assertions and demanding “restoration of status quo ante”.
