New Delhi: Prime minister Narendra Modi on Friday revealed to an all-party meeting that no Chinese troops had entered Indian territory nor had they taken control of any Indian posts on the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.
Speaking during the all-party meeting convened to hold discussions with the opposition parties over India-China border tensions, the PM said: “Neither has anyone entered our territory nor is anyone in control of our border posts. Twenty of our soldiers were martyred, but they taught a lesson to those who dared to look Bharat Mata in the eye.”
The PM further said the entire country is hurt and angry at the steps taken by China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
In his concluding remarks, Modi said the martyred soldiers have taught a lesson to those who had their eyes on mother India. No one entered Indian territory nor were Indian posts taken over, he added. He said the Centre is committed to developing the infrastructure at the borders, and under his government, the capacity of the defence forces has been increased.
