NEW DELHI: Union law minister
Ravi Shankar Prasad
on Wednesday hit back at Congress leader
on the issue of the alleged Chinese incursion inside the Indian territory in Ladakh.
The former Congress president tweeted a news report which alleged that China has claimed ownership of the entire area instead of discussing the issue of its intrusion inside the Indian territories during a meeting between the officials of the two countries.
"The Chinese have walked in and taken our territory in Ladakh. Meanwhile, the PM is absolutely silent and has vanished from the scene," Rahul tweeted.
Responding to the Congress leader's tweet, Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Rahul Gandhi should know that on international matters, like China, questions should not be asked on Twitter.
"He is the same man who asked for evidence after Balakot airstrikes and 2016 Uri attack," he added.
The Union minister hailed the leadership of Narendra Modi and said that "today's India is of 2020 and not 1962".
"It is led by courageous leader like PM Modi," he said.
