Rajnath slams Rahul for “misleading” claim on China

PATNA: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for the “misleading” claim that China had intruded “1200 kilometres” into Indias territory and lavished praise on armed forces for the valour displayed by them in defending the countrys honour.

Addressing four back to back rallies in poll-bound Bihar, Singh also tore into the opposition party for having sought “suboot” (proof) of the Balakot air strikes and demanded an “apology” in the wake of Pakistan minister Fawad Chaudhrys recent statement on the floor of the national assembly.

“Some opposition parties are misleading the people. The leader of the Congress is saying that intrusion has been made into 1200 kms of our territory and the land has been captured. (AGENCIES)
