Bharatiya Janata Party President Jagat Prakash Nadda lashed out at former prime minister Manmohan Singh for his statement on the Ladakh clash.
Dr Singh had said in a statement, “To do any less would be a historic betrayal of the people’s faith.”
Nadda in a series of tweets, said that the Congress party surrendered over 43,000 KM of Indian territory to the Chinese during UPA regime.
“Former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh’s statement is mere wordplay. Sadly, the conduct and actions of top leaders of the Congress party will not make any Indian believe such statements. Remember, this is the same INC that always questions & demoralises our armed forces,” Nadda tweeted.
“Dr. Manmohan Singh, rightly, calls for unity. Again, the strong words on paper fall flat when we see exactly who is vitiating the atmosphere of unity… Hope Dr. Singh is able to prevail on his own party at least,” BJP chief said in a subsequent tweet.
Nadda lashed out at the Congress party and said, “Dr. Manmohan Singh belongs to the same party which: Helplessly surrendered over 43,000 KM of Indian territory to the Chinese! During the UPA years saw abject strategic and territorial surrender without a fight.Time and again belittles our forces.”
“One only wishes that Dr. Singh was as worried about Chinese designs when, as PM, he abjectly surrendered hundreds of square kilometres of India’s land to China. He presided over 600 incursions made by China between 2010 to 2013!,” Nadda continued.
“Dr Manmohan Singh can certainly share his wisdom on many subjects but the responsibilities of the office of the Prime Minister isn’t one of them. UPA personified systematic institutional erosion of that office, combined with disrespect for our armed forces. NDA has reversed that!,” he said.
Nadda asked Singh to stop insulting soldiers.
“Dear Dr. Singh and Congress Party, Please stop insulting our forces repeatedly, questioning their valour. You did this post the air strikes and surgical strikes. Please understand the true meaning of national unity, especially in such times. It’s never too late to improve,” Nadda added.
