On Monday, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh while answering the questions of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Chinese army did not enter Indian territory. He also said that the situation on LAC is under control. Let me tell you that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is constantly questioning the government about the conditions on the Line of Control (LAC) with China in his rallies during Bihar elections. Rahul Gandhi is claiming that China has occupied our land.
However, Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday that the claims are completely baseless. Speaking about the Galvan Valley conflict in eastern Ladakh, Singh said that the situation on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) was under control and that Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops did not enter Indian territory.
During an interview with India Today TV, the Defense Minister said that he has approved the Centre’s stand on the LAC standoff with the Chinese Army. He said, “The situation is under our control…. The Chinese military’s claims of entering Indian territory are completely unfounded. ” Commander-level talks are going on with China, Rajnath Singh said, “We don’t know when this will be resolved but we are making efforts.” He further said that it was not in the interest of the country to disclose all the details.
Attacking the Congress, Singh said, “I don’t want to say anything about what happened from 1962 to 2013. Our forces showed great courage on LAC. It is baseless that the PLA has entered our region. After a skirmish, I met the soldiers. Our Prime Minister also met the soldiers. I can say that no one will try to enter our region.”

Questioning the Congress, he said, “Pulwama attack was said to be lewd by Congress. Prime Minister Modiji was suspected. Three days ago, in Pakistan’s assembly, the Pakistan minister himself revealed what had happened in Pulwama. Why are the Congress people silent now? ”
The Defense Minister said, “Pakistan has illegally captured Gilgit-Baltistan. Pakistan is now going to make Gilgit-Baltistan a state. Our government has stated in two words that the entire PoK, including Gilgit-Baltistan, is an integral part of India. ” He said, “We did not want India to be divided but it was done.” You are also aware of how the Hindus and Sikhs and Buddhists remained in Pakistan and how they have been dealing with them. We made a citizenship law for minorities facing religious persecution there. “
