In the series of attacks on Modi government, Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday raised questions over the ongoing border dispute between India and China. Rahul asked in a tweet, “The Chinese have taken our land. When exactly is Government of India planning to get it back? Or is that also going to be left to an “Act of God.”
Earlier the Congress MP had said that except the PM, Narendra Modi every citizen of the country has faith in the capability of Indian army. He tweeted, “Everyone believes in the strength and bravery of the Indian military except the Prime Minister whose cowardice allowed China to take our land.
Meanwhile, there has been no concrete solution to the deadlock situation at the India China border since May 5. Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi met in Moscow. However, the two and a half-hour-long discussion provided no solution.
Leaders of both countries emphasized peace and harmony efforts on the LAC or line of actual control. India registered its protest against the action of the Chinese army since me. However, both countries have agreed on a five-point plan.The Ministry of External Affairs issued a joint press statement early on Friday featuring five points. Both the sides agreed on these points after a “frank and constructive” discussion.
The two foreign ministers agreed that both the countries would not allow the differences to become disputes. They will abide by all the existing agreement and protocol on India China boundary affairs. The nations will maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas and avoid any action that could escalate matters.
Now that the Foreign Ministers of both countries have talked, it would be interesting to see if China adheres to the plan because foreign ministers of the two countries sat on the table, after the military face-off on June 15. Then on July 5, NSA Ajit Doval and state councillor Wang Yi negotiated an agreement to create a buffer zone in the Galwan valley region.
The working mechanism for consultation and coordination (WMCC) continues to work.But only time will tell what awaits the two Asian giants in the future.
