You ‘abjectly surrendered’ hundreds of sq km, BJP hits back at Manmohan | India News

NEW DELHI: BJP president JP Nadda on Monday hit back at Manmohan Singh saying that as the PM, he had “abjectly surrendered” hundreds of square kilometres of India’s land to China and presided over 600 incursions made by the neighbouring country during 2010-13.
Through a series of tweets after Singh targeted PM Modi over his handling of the ongoing stand-off with China, Nadda said the senior Congress functionary and his party should stop “insulting” the forces repeatedly and questioning their valour. “They did this post the air strikes and surgical strikes,” he said. Nadda tweeted that Singh’s statement was mere “word play”. “Sadly, the conduct and actions of top leaders of the Congress party will not make any Indian believe such statements,” he said, adding, “Remember, this is the same Congress that always questions and demoralises our armed forces.”
In the last few days, former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has also been accusing the government of “surrendering” territory to Chinese aggression.
The BJP president said India fully trusts and supports PM Narendra Modi. “130 crore Indians have seen his administrative experience in some of the most testing times, particularly how he has always put the well-being of the nation over and above everything else,” he said. Nadda said Singh rightly calls for unity. He then added that these strong words on paper fall flat when people see exactly who is vitiating the atmosphere of unity. “Hope Dr Singh is able to prevail on his own party at least,” he said.
