The Congress on Tuesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his absence from the Lok Sabha as Defence Minister Rajnath Singh spoke about the India-China border issue, saying that “he is frightened to face tough questions”.
The Congress also walked out of the Lok Sabha after being denied permission to speak about support to the Indian Army following Rajnath Singh’s statement.
Speaking to the media outside Parliament, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said: “Today, in the Lok Sabha, Rajnath Singh was set to speak about Ladakh. For the Congress, the country is supreme. Our Army is our pride.
