India-China LAC clash
PM Modi to hold all-party meeting on 19 June
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to address the presidents of all parties and explain the rift arises at China border. Around 20 brave soldiers were martyred on Monday in a sudden clash with china army. On this issue Modi has called an all-party meet on June 19 at 5 PM to discuss the situation at India-China border areas, following Monday night's clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers at Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh, that saw 20 Indian soldiers being martyred. The Prime Minister's office said that presidents of various political parties can take part in the meeting that will be held virtually due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Prime Minister has been part of numerous meetings since news of the most significant India-China flashpoint for at least 5 decades occurred in Eastern Ladakh, with Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, the CDS, the three Armed Forces Chiefs and EAM Jaishankar also being involved. There were casualties on the Chinese side as well, though China has censured their numbers. US intelligence states 35 Chinese soldiers were killed. China's diplomats have similarly obfuscated the sequence of events leading to the clash, though their belligerence and aggression at the LAC has since been exposed.
