NEW DELHI: The BJP has adopted an aggressive stand on Rahul Gandhi’s statement regarding the Indian Army in the context of the India-China clash. Now BJP spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia has accused Rahul Gandhi of breaking the morale of the Indian Army. On Saturday, BJP leader said ‘he went on to say that if Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge is not “remote controlled” and if the opposition stands by the country, the party should expel Rahul Gandhi for his remark that the Chinese are beating up Indian soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh.
Gaurav Bhatia said, “As an Indian and the Bharatiya Janata Party is proud of India’s army, our army is proud… When the soldiers are beating the Chinese army on the border, they are showing their strength.” .. Why is India’s ‘Jaichand’ Rahul Gandhi doing the work of breaking the morale of our army at that time?
एक भारतीय होने के नाते और भारतीय जनता पार्टी को भारत की सेना पर गर्व है, हमारा गरूर है सेना… जो जवान सीमा पर चीन की सेना को पीट रहे हैं, उनको अपनी ताकत दिखा रहे हैं… उस समय पर भारत के 'जयचंद' राहुल गांधी हमारी सेना का मनोबल तोड़ने का काम क्यों कर रहे हैं।— BJP (@BJP4India) December 17, 2022

“Let me tell Rahul Gandhi that this is not the India of 1962. Not a single inch of India’s land is under anyone’s control and no one has the courage to take it. We have the bravest army in the world, we are capable diplomatically, he added.
“Rahul Gandhi should tell the country when he will give up his character of ‘Jaichand’. In the year 2007, a question was asked in the Parliament, then the then Congress government had told that a total of 43180 square kilometers of land was occupied by China during the Congress rule, said Congress leader.
He accused Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi that they have an agreement with China and no such statement was shown when the Congress party, Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi condemned China.
ऐसा प्रतीत होता है कि राहुल गांधी ने दुश्मन देशों से समझौता किया हुआ कि जब जब भारतीय सेना अपना पराक्रम दिखाएगी राहुल गांधी और कांग्रेस पार्टी सेना का मनोबल तोड़ने का कार्य करेगी।— BJP (@BJP4India) December 17, 2022
