Rahul accuses Modi of yielding to China pressure on mountain strike corps
New Delhi July 13 (IANS) Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of capitulating to pressure from China on the formation of the Indian Army s nascent Mountain Strike Corps.
Gandhi attached a news report titled `Indian Army puts Mountain Strike Corps aimed at China in cold storage. The report cited an official source as saying that the Army has decided to shelve all new accretions for a China-specific Mountain Strike Corps due to financial constraints.
Gandhi said in a tweet that Modi s visit in April this year to Wuhan in China for an informal summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping was a "no agenda" visit.
"Our Prime Minister s `no agenda China visit clearly had a Chinese hidden agenda which is now unravelling. Never before in India s history has a Prime Minister capitulated to pressure from a foreign power as this one has. This is BJP nationalism on full display " Gandhi said.
The Cabinet Committee on Security had approved the Mountain Strike Corps in 2013. The move was apparently geared towards Army acquiring "quick reaction ground offensive capabilites" against China.
