New Delhi: BJP’s MP in Ladakh, Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, has given a befitting reply to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, after latter in a sarcastic tweet targeted Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
Gandhi on Tuesday tweeted, “Have the Chinese occupied Indian territory in Ladakh?”
Once RM is done commenting on the hand symbol, can he answer:
Have the Chinese occupied Indian territory in Ladakh?

Namgyal put forward the facts and made Rahul Gandhi understand the reality about Ladakh. He shamed Gandhi and said, “I hope @RahulGandhi and @INCIndia will agree with my reply based on facts and hopefully they won’t try to mislead again.”
He went on to list areas that he claimed were occupied on Congress watch:
- Aksai Chin (37,244 square km) in 1962 during Congress regime.
- Tia Pangnak and Chabji Valley (250m length) in Chumur area till 2008 during UPA time.
- Zorawar Fort in Demjok was destroyed by PLA in 2008 and setup PLA’s Observing Point in 2012 during UPA regime and also created Chinese/new Demjok/Colony with 13 cemented houses.
- India lost Doom Cheley (ancient trade point) between Dungti and Demjok in 2008-2009 during UPA regime.
Namgyal also shared a map that he captioned as an “Overview of Demjok area. Chinese intruded land of India till 2012 during Congress regime.”

Rajnath Singh had on Monday hit out at Gandhi using a couplet, which he claimed was of Mirza Ghalib and that he was presenting it in a different style. Addressing a virtual rally of BJP workers in Maharashtra, Singh said, “You apply medicine to the hand when it pains, but what to when the hand itself is the cause of pain.”
