Just before the Parliament’s monsoon session that begins on Monday, the Congress on Sunday said that they would seek answers from the Centre over an ongoing border stand-off with China, the worsening situation in Kashmir and mob lynching incidents in the name of cow.
The leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said the situation on the border with China in the Sikkim sector is very tense. He even blamed Beijing for the boundary stand-off.
“This situation has been created by China. It is a matter of country’s security and we will raise it in Parliament,” Azad said after an all-party meeting convened by the government at Parliament Library building. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also attended the meet.
Notably, the all party meeting was boycotted by the Trinamool Congress.
He further added that security situation was at its “worst” in Kashmir where the government has closed all the doors for talks to end the current logjam.
“All the roads for talks have been closed by the government. Even ventilator is not open. There is political suffocation in Kashmir,” the Congress leader said.
“We will also raise the issues related to mob lynching, agrarian crisis in view of farmer suicides.”
Azad said the Congress was not in favour of stalling the proceedings of the house but asked the government to come forward and allow the issues for discussion.
