NEW DELHI: Hitting out at the
for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the standoff between India and China in Ladakh, senior BJP leader and Union minister
said it seems the opposition party's leaders have become "spokespersons of China as they never dare to question it".
He also targeted the Congress for allegedly accepting donation to the
Rajiv Gandhi Foundation
from the Chinese embassy, saying the "silence" of the opposition party leaders on the donation and their MoU with
Chinese Communist Party
is "striking" and asked "are these dynasts influenced by donations".
"It seems Congress leaders are spokespersons for China. They only talk against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and never dare to question China," Joshi said in a tweet.
Amid an ongoing war of words over the Sino-India standoff in eastern Ladakh, the BJP on Thursday attacked the Congress over an alleged by donation by the Chinese embassy to Rajiv Gandhi Foundation during UPA rule and in lieu of which the foundation advocated for free trade agreement between the two countries.
The Congress have dismissed the charge as an attempt to divert the attention of the country from issues of national security.
