‘Bluster and bluff’: Owaisi on Jaishankar remark, ‘Who sent Army to LAC?’

Owaisi on Jaishankar took the line of PM Modi on LAC that ‘…na koi ghusa hai…’ “The government has lost control of territory in Ladakh and failed to restore the status quo as it existed three years ago,” Owaisi said.

In an interview with ANI editor Smita Prakash on Wednesday, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi called foreign minister S Jaishankar’s claims about the Line of Actual Control “bluster and bluff” that will not resolve the border crisis with China. If the government has nothing to hide, why is it “running away” from a debate in Parliament, Owaisi, who has consistently criticized the government on this issue, wondered.

“If the government has nothing to hide on the China border crisis, Mr. Jaishankar, @DrSJaishankar why is it running away from a debate and discussion in Parliament? Why are my questions on the subject denied? Why is media not being taken there?” Owaisi tweeted. 

Terming Jaishankar’s argument facetious and irrelevant, Owaisi said Jaishankar is following the PM’s line of ‘na koi ghusa hai..

“The government has lost control of territory in Ladakh and failed to restore the status quo as it existed three years ago. Is that not the least that is expected from the government? They can’t even get China to discuss Depsang and Demchok,” Owaisi said.

The government is scared of the truth — be it on the Gujarat riots or the “Ladakh crisis with China”, Owaisi said. “Bluster and bluff from the EAM will not solve the border crisis with China. It needs honesty and a willingness to accept the truth. The minister has again shown today that the Modi government is scared of the truth, whether on the 2002 Gujrat pogrom or the Ladakh crisis with China,” Owaisi added.

In his interview on Tuesday, Jaishankar countered the Congress’s criticism on the China issue and said the Congress leaders must have some problem understanding the word beginning with ‘C’. “When did that area come under Chinese control? They (Congress) must have some problem understanding words beginning with ‘C’. I think they are deliberately misrepresenting the situation. The Chinese first came there in 1958 and the Chinese captured it in October 1962. Now you are going to blame the Modi government in 2023 for a bridge that the Chinese captured in 1962 and you don’t have the honesty to say that it is where it happened,” Jaishankar said.
