Chidambaram lashes out at Modi

Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Friday said that Modi once again avoided mentioning China during his speech in Ladakh. “For the third time in a week, PM did not name China as the aggressor, why?” he tweeted. “What is the purpose of talking about an unnamed ‘enemy’ to the people of India and the jawans in Ladakh?”

Chidambaram added that the government has failed to answer Congress’ questions on satellite images that showed Chinese troops occupying Indian territory. Chidambaram also wondered whether Modi, in his interactions with United States President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, had named China as the intruder.
