NEW DELHI:  Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday took a jibe at the Prime Minister over the Ladakh standoff, dubbing him as “Surender Modi” while pointing at satellite images to claim that China captured Indian territory.

“Narendra Modi is actually Surender Modi,” Rahul tweeted, sharing an opinion piece in Japan Times titled ‘India’s appeasement policy toward China unravels’. “PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression. If the land was Chinese, why were our soldiers killed? Where were they killed?” he said. Rahul further said that satellite images contradicts the PM’s statement at the all-party meeting that no one has entered our territories, no one is at present within our territory and no one has occupied our posts.

“The PM said neither has anyone entered the country nor has anyone captured our territory. But satellite images clearly show that China has captured Indian territory near Pangong Lake.” BJP chief J P Nadda hit back saying, “Under Modiji’s leadership, the roadmap of India’s development is ready.

You worry about your own roadmap, which is sliding downwards every day.” Questioned the government’s denial of Chinese transgression, the Congress said, “Despite the statement of security experts, army generals and satellite imagery depicting Chinese intrusion into Pangong Tso up to nearly 8 km, construction of over 60 permanent structures, including bunkers and boat pads & occupation up to Finger 4.”

Religious heads join chorus against China

Religious gurus from Haridwar have joined the campaign to boycott Chinese goods. Right from yoga guru Ramdev to Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad office-bearers and Muslim clerics, all urged people to ensure that they defeat China on the economic front as the Indian Army takes on the PLA on the border.  “As patriots, we should boycott Chinese goods and deny them profit they make from our hard earned money. We should become more and more self-reliant,” said yoga guru Ramdev.

Boycott: Haryana cancels tender  

The Haryana government cancelled two tenders for installation of pollution control system at two thermal plants in Hisar and Yamunanagar in which the Chinese companies were the lowest bidders. The Haryana Power Generation Corporation Limited had invited  global bids to install a flue gas desulphurization system at power stations. Sources said fresh tenders with changed terms and conditions will be invited on the pattern adopted by  NTPC which allows only firms registered in India to bid for domestic projects.
