NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said that Chinese soldiers didn’t cede an inch of land during the face-off with Indian troops in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh.
“Not even one inch of India’s land has been captured. Indian soldiers showed immense bravery during the skirmish and within no time gave a befitting reply to Chinese troops,” the home minister said, adding that no one could capture an inch of land under the Modi government. He made the remarks while talking to reporters outside the Parliament building.
The senior BJP leader also fired potshots at the Congress and alleged that a huge amount of money was transferred into bank accounts of Rajiv Gandhi foundation by the Chinese embassy in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
“I saw the question hour list and after seeing question number 5, I understood the anxiety (of Congress). The question was regarding the cancellation of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) licence of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF),” he said.
He added, “Rajiv Gandhi Foundation got Rs 1.35 cr from the Chinese Embassy. The registration was cancelled as this was not according to FCRA rules.”
