“Then who killed our twenty soldiers; says prominent writer and an ex Colonel in Indian Army”

Srinagar: The All Party Meeting which was convened by Prime Minister NarendraModi on the India-China face off in Ladakh on Friday evening sparked a criticism by few opposition leaders saying, if no intrusion was made by PLA then what are the circumstances under which our twenty soldiers laid their lives?

As the meeting was attended by several political parties, drawing sharp focus on the escalation of tensions at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) that claimed the lives of 20 Indian soldiers few days back.

This was the first time that Prime Minister held such meeting for holding a discussions on border tensions with China with opposition members,

However the virtual meeting on Friday ended with an address by the Prime Minister that sparked more questions than it answered.

Soon after the end of the APM, one of the prominent writers from India and a retired Colonel of Indian Army, Ajai Shukla tweeted:

 

  • Did I see Prime Minister @narendramodi redrawing the Sino-Indian border on TV today? Modi said nobody entered Indian Territory. Has he conceded to China the Galwan River valley and Fingers 4-8 in Pangong Tso — both on our side of the LAC — and where Chinese troops now sit?
  • If, as @narendramodi said today, nobody entered Indian Territory, what is all the fuss about? Why the military-to-military dialogue, why the diplomatic talks, why the military disengagement, why the deaths of 20 soldiers?
  • “20 Indian soldiers gave up their lives while evicting Chinese intruders from Indian Territory. But Modi says nobody entered Indian Territory. Then where did these soldiers die? Is Modi saying – like China is saying – that they crossed into China?
  • Was Prime Minister @narendramodi knowingly dissembling? Or was he incorrectly briefed? Or does the government believe it can say anything and get away with it in this post-truth world?”

Prime Minister Naredndra Modi at All Party Meeting said that, “The entire country is “hurt and angry” at the killing of 20 soldiers by Chinese forces in a disputed Himalayan border region, while denying any Indian territory had been lost.

It was also said that, “The country today has such capability that no one can even dare look towards an inch of our land.” He stressed that India wants peace and friendship, but upholding sovereignty is foremost.

“The rules of engagement along the frontier — which prohibit using live ammunition but also ban physical contact between soldiers — will have to be renegotiated”, defence analyst Rahul Bedi said

“There is a lot of pressure on the Indian side, the emotions are high among the public,” he said.

“It remains to be seen whether India will sit down at the negotiating table with China and say it will like to change these agreements to make them a little more aggressive or offensive in nature.”

The Indo-Sino forces accuse each other of instigating Monday’s fight in the Galwan Valley, part of the disputed Ladakh region along the Himalayan frontier. China has not commented about the casualties they have suffered at Galwan, Ladakh on Monday. (Kashmir Glacier)
