NEW DELHI: Referring to clashes among Indian and Chinese troops in Galwan Valley,
president J P
on Tuesday said Indian forces gave a befitting reply and were ready to take on any adversary.
Addressing party workers from Kerala in a virtual rally, Nadda said the borders would remain intact under the leadership of PM
. “I can assure you that under the leadership of PM Modi, India’s territorial integrity will not be compromised. We now have the political will and our Army is fully equipped to take on any adversary,” Nadda said.
Reacting to Congress president
’s demand to reduce fuel prices, he said, “Sonia Gandhi says that the price of petrol should be reduced. I want to tell you that petrol prices were raised in Puducherry, Rajasthan, Punjab and Maharashtra after the lockdown, all of them are Congress-ruled states. I just want to ask Sonia Gandhiji... why are your chief ministers not listening to you?”
Nadda said he was pained to say that the opposition party’s behaviour was gravely irresponsible. “We as a party work to serve the nation. But Congress’s intention is to serve the party only,” he added.
Nadda said Modi had given a new direction to the country’s democracy with his “far-sighted policies, dedication and the spirit of team India”, and people’s welfare and the country’s interest were reflected in every government decision. “This first year of the Modi government’s second term will be known for its tough and big decisions and converting challenges into opportunities,” he said.
