Sanjay Raut speaks about the Galwan valley incident

Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena leader, on Wednesday, while speaking to the media said that it is not right to hold Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi responsible for whatever happened at the border.

Raut stated that we cannot hold the people mentioned above for the martyrdom of 20 jawans as everyone is responsible for whatever happened. Earlier, Raut had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the ‘befitting reply’ response to China. He also urged the Prime Minister to reveal the truth behind the violent face-off in the Galwan valley area in which at least 20 Indian Army personnel, including a Colonel, were killed.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi in response to the situation gave a stern warning to China stating that India wishes to maintain peace, however, it will not stay shut if provoked. The Prime Minister said this before addressing 15 state Chief Ministers on the current outbreak of coronavirus crisis. Modi added that the country must be proud to know that its 20 Army martyrs who died in Galwan Valley, died fighting for the nation till the very end. The PM further requested the attending CMs and Union ministers to maintain two minutes of silence for the slain warriors.

The Indian Army released the list of the martyrs who lost their lives on June 15-16 earlier in the day. While Colonel Santosh Babu and two other soldiers were killed in action at the Line of Actual Control, the other 17 injured soldiers succumbed to the injures they were inflicted within the sub-freezing temperatures of Ladakh. Both India and China are currently engaging in diplomatic and Army-level talks regarding the situation, while PM Modi has called an all-party meet on June 19 at 5 PM to talk about the situation at India-China border areas to negotiate a plan of action.
