Home / India News / Spot the difference: Chidambaram tweets satellite image to attack govt over India-China border issue
Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday used a satellite image to question the government over the border standoff with China in eastern Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.
The former Union minister’s tweet came a day after the Congress launched an online campaign, #SpeakUpForOurJawans, demanding transparency from the Centre over the alleged Chinese incursion into Indian territory.
Twenty soldiers of the 16 Bihar regiment, including its commanding officer Colonel B Santosh Babu, were killed on June 15 at Patrol Point 14 in Ladakh during a clash with the Chinese army.
The Congress party has raised the pitch and attacked the government for what it calls its silence over the border issue.
“Spot the differences between May 22 and June 22, 2020 on the INDIA-CHINA border,” Chidambaram tweeted on Saturday.

A day before, Congress president Sonia Gandhi, son Rahul Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra stepped up attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the India-China border standoff and asked the government to take people into confidence on the extent of territories being occupied by Chinese troops.
Other senior party leaders such as Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Chidambaram, along with all Congress Working Committee members, party state chiefs and legislative party leaders have also issued videos.
On its part, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been attacking the Congress for allowing even more incursions during their regime, as well charging the party for using public money to fund the Rajiv Gandhi foundation.
