Sonia Gandhi, others protest in Parliament, demand discussion on India-China faceoff
New Delhi, December 21: Congress MP Sonia Gandhi and other Opposition leaders on Wednesday staged a protest in front of the Gandhi statue on Parliament premises, demanding a debate on the recent India-China faceoff at Tawang.
Earlier in the morning, Sonia presided over a meeting of all party MPs in Parliament to plan the course of action for the remaining days of the Winter Session.
The Congress Parliamentary Party meeting took place at Parliament's Central Hall. Party president Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and all party MPs were also present in the meeting led by Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi reportedly expressed concern about the Chinese transgression during the Congress parliamentary party meeting. She said, "The government is being adamant and not holding a discussion on it" and questioned, "why is the government not sending out a financial reply to Chinese transgression".
Since the Winter Session began on December 7, opposition parties have demanded a discussion of the border tensions between India and China and the most recent Chinese violations.
