In the first Indo-China face off on Ladakh, the former PM Manmohan Singh said PM Modi should be aware of his implications and do not allow china to take advantage of its position.
The former PM Singh makes a move to remind ‘The government that disinformation is no substitute for diplomacy or decisive leadership. The truth cannot be suppressed by having pliant allies spout comforting but false statements.’
Manmohan Singh added by saying, “We call upon the PM and the government to rise to the occasion to ensure justice for Col. B. Santosh Babu and our jawans who have made the ultimate sacrifice and resolutely defended our territorial integrity.”
The former PM stated, “To do any less would be a historic betrayal of the people’s faith.”
Our 20 army personnel were killed in a brutal attack by the Chinese military in Galwan Valley on June 15.
The country is standing at a historic crossroads where government decisions and actions will have a holding of how future generations will look at us.
The former PM Singh also added, “Those who lead us bear the weight of a solemn duty. And in our democracy that responsibility rests with the officer with the prime minister. The prime minister must always be mindful of implications of his words and declaration on our nation’s security as also strategic and territorial interests.”
Singh said by addressing Modi by saying, “China is brazenly and illegally seeking to claim parts of Indian territory such as Galwan valley and the Pangong Tso Lake by committing multiple incursion between April 20 to date. The prime minister can not allow them to use his words as a vindication as their position and must ensure all organs of the government work together to tackle this crisis and prevent it from escalating further.”
The former PM also said in his statement that, “This is a moment where we must stand together as a nation and be united in our response to this brazen threat.”
