Rahul Gandhi should rise above petty politics: Amit Shah


New Delhi, Jun 20 (IANS): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday hit back at former Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his statement on face-off between Indian and Chinese soldiers in Galwan Valley in Ladakh and advised him to rise above "petty politics".

Putting a video of the father of an injured army man on his Twitter account, Shah said, Gandhi should stand in solidarity with national interest by shunning his politics over the issue at a time when the whole nation is united.

"A brave armyman's father speaks and he has a very clear message for Mr Gandhi. At a time when the entire nation is united, Mr Rahul Gandhi should also rise above petty politics and stand in solidarity with national interest," Shah tweeted.

Shah's remark came after Rahul Gandhi in a fresh tweet accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of surrendering Indian territory to China.

"PM has surrendered Indian territory to Chinese aggression. If the land was Chinese: 1. Why were our soldiers killed? 2. Where were they killed?," Gandhi tweeted.

The video of the father of an injured soldier shows him saying, "Indian Army is a very strong army and has the ability to defeat China and other foreign countries. Rahul Gandhi should not do politics on the issue... My son fought and will continue fighting in the army".

Gandhi had on Friday re-tweeted a video of the father with a comment that cabinet ministers were lying about the violent face-off with Chinese troops on June 15 night in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh on the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

"It's sad to see senior GOI ministers reduced to lying in order to protect the PM. Don't insult our martyrs with your lies," Gandhi had tweeted then.

The attack on Indian Army personnel by Chinese People's Liberation Army happened on June 15 night and it continued for almost six to seven hours.

On June 16, Indian Army stated that 20 of their men, including officers, were killed in an unprecedented violent clash with PLA troops at Galwan valley. The force also said that the death toll would increase as many soldiers were brutally injured.

    Shah has a warped idea of politics. Concern about India's borders and national security is petty politics.

    As Home Minister he is responsible for the Indo Tibetian Border Force who are assigned to patrol the Ladakh borders in peace time and should have alerted all concerned about the Chinese Build up that finally led to this tragedy of us loosing so many Brave Hearts.

    Between Amit Shah and Modi we have lost out on all neighbouring countries be it China, Nepal, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

    While the defence Minister and the External Affairs Minister confirm that Chinese troops have indeed entered and occupied Indian territory, the Prime Minister when interacting with all political parties states that Chinese have not entered India nor occupied any territory. Even in such a serious situation where we have lost twenty Brave hearts, the PM is trying to mislead our country.

    Only EVMs do not have their own brains and that is why they will not question you. All others Indians those who have a brain will question you. While the statements from prime minister , defence minister, external affairs minister and Army head differ then it is the right of every citizen to know the truth. We can only get it through opposition leaders.Country does not belong only to BJP but every citizen.

    Gandhi should stand in solidarity with national interest by shunning his politics over the issue at a time when the whole nation is united. Accepted without doubt. But who have been working tirelessly to divide the nation on communal lines? Sir, you and your followers have been attempting and are still trying hard to split the unity of the nation through domestic issues.

    India should shut down its embassies and consulates in China and Pakistan as a sign of solidarity.

    Indian businesses having branches, offices and factories in China must shut down permanently. You need to hit them where it hurts.

    We Indians will boycott everything Chinese - Made in China or Assembled in China or spare parts and components from China. We don't care for Modi's friendship with China's Xi.

    As a home minister, reply to his query and keep his mouth shut. If you cannot then stop branding the people who question the Govt as Anti Nationals through your paid channels

    Just to save your friends who has got business deals with Chinese business Mafia & to cover your utter failures in saving our brave soldiers you are now targeting Opposition.
