“This is not his great-grandfather Nehru’s India,” BJP replies to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s remarks citing China threat
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi recently claimed that India is ignoring China’s threat of war, in retaliation to which BJP accused him of attempting to “demoralise the military forces”. Speaking to reporters earlier in the day during a stopover on his Bharat Jodo Yatra, Mr. Gandhi claimed that China is getting ready for war and that the Indian government is ignoring the threat and sleeping on it. BJP spokesperson Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore also took on to comment on Rahul Gandhi’s great-grandfather and former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, a BJP spokesperson, responded to the remark by saying,”Rahul Gandhi feels there should be proximity with China. Now, he has developed so much proximity that he knows what China will do.”
“During his yatra, Rahul Gandhi has made comments about Indian security and border areas to spread confusion in the country and demoralise Indian soldiers. This is not the India of his great-grandfather Nehru, who lost 37,242 square km to China while sleeping,” he told a news conference in New Delhi, referring to the 1962 war between India and China.
