The Congress party and the central government have come face to face in the violent clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in Galvan Valley. After the martyrdom of 20 soldiers of India, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi shared a video interview and asked the central government the question, how dare China attack our unarmed soldiers? Rahul also asked why our soldiers were sent for martyrdom without weapons?

Foreign Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar has answered these questions of Congress leader. The Foreign Minister tweeted and said, “Let us understand the facts. All soldiers at the border always carry weapons, especially when leaving the post. On 15 June, soldiers in Galvan did the same. A long-standing practice (as per the 1996 and 2005 agreements) is not to use firearms during faceoffs.

On the night of 15 June, a contingent of Indian Army led by the Commanding Officer went to Galvan Valley. At the same time, Chinese soldiers attacked Indian soldiers with barbed wire, iron rods and stones. In this sudden attack, 20 Indian soldiers were martyred.
