Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Congress leader, Prithviraj Chavan on Friday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that his remark that “no one has entered Indian territory” has become popular in China. 

Chavan said that the intrusion of Chinese army into Ladakh was a matter of deep concern but PM Modi’s remarks have benefited the neighbouring country and made him popular in China. 

While addressing the media in a press conference, the Congress leader alleged that the remarks made by PM Modi has demoralised the Indian armed forces. The government should come out with a clarification on PM’s remarks, he demanded. 

Earlier, during the all-party meeting, Modi said that no one has entered the Indian territory and no Indian post has been captured by anyone. His remarks came after 20 Indian Army personnel were martyred in violent clashes with the Chinese army. 

However, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) tried to justify the statement and said that PM Modi’s remarks have been twisted. It said that the remarks were addressed to the events of June 15 at Galwan where 20 soldiers were martyred and as a consequence there was no Chinese presence on the Indian-side of LAC. 

However, Chavan said that Congress doesn’t accept the PM’s statement and the justification given by the PMO. It was expected from the PM to be responsible while addressing such a serious matter, he added. 

Chavan also pointed out the different views on the Galwan valley incident within the government. “The Finance Minister admits the presence of Chinese soldiers and construction activities along the Indian side of LAC. However, Modi says there is no intrusion,” the Congress leader said. 

He claimed that the Chinese soldiers were constructing tents within the Indian territory as per the satellite images. Prime Minister Modi and Chinese President XI Jinping met 19 times in six years but none of their meetings has helped India, he asserted.
