Soon after the violent face-off between India and China in the Galwan valley took place, several political leaders across the nation started pouring in their reaction to the violent face-off between the two countries.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet: “Why is the PM silent? Why is he hiding? Enough is enough. We need to know what has happened. How dare China kill our soldiers? How dare they take our land?”
Likewise, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut stated that “We can’t hold Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi responsible for whatever happened at the border. We all are responsible for the martyrdom of 20 jawans. All parties will support whatever decision PM takes but he should tell people what went wrong.”
“Twenty soldiers were martyred but the government kept silent. The government should take citizens into confidence and tell them how China grabbed our land, how 20 jawans were martyred, what is the current situation and what is govt’s strategy to deal with the issue,” Randeep Surjewala stated.
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh wrote: “The happening in the #Galwanvalley is a continuation of violations by China. It is time now that the country stands up to these incursions. Our soldiers are not a fair game that every few days officers and men are being killed and injured defending our borders.”
“The Nation will never forget their bravery and sacrifice. My heart goes out to the families of the fallen soldiers. The nation stands shoulder to shoulder with them in this difficult hour. We are proud of the bravery and courage of India’s Bravehearts,” Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said.
“The loss of soldiers in Galwan is deeply disturbing and painful. Our soldiers displayed exemplary courage and valour in the line of duty and sacrificed their lives in the highest traditions of the Indian Army,” he added.
