Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday mentioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi had “fundamentally weakened India” resulting in the current Chinese aggression alongside the LAC.
In the primary episode of his video sequence on problems with significance, Gandhi alleged that since 2014 the PM’s “fixed blunders and indiscretions have essentially weakened India and left us susceptible. Empty phrases don’t suffice on the earth of geopolitics.“
Dwelling on the timing of Chinese motion, Gandhi mentioned: “Today you may have a rustic which is economically in bother; in bother so far as international coverage is anxious; in bother with its neighbours; and that’s why the Chinese have determined that that is presumably the very best time to behave and that’s the reason they’ve acted.“

Gandhi’s three-minute-long video centered on the border battle with China as he requested why the Chinese “chose this particular time to violate the LAC?”
“What is it about India situation that has made China to act in such an aggressive way?” requested Gandhi.
He mentioned nations are protected by a confluence of forces—its international relationships, its neighbourhood, its financial system and the imaginative and prescient of its individuals.
“And what has occurred during the last 6 years is that in all these areas India has been disturbed and disrupted.
“Our relationship with the outside world used to be with multiple countries. The US, Russia and EU used to help us manoeuvre. Today our relationship has become transactional. We have a transactional relationship with the United States. We have disturbed our relationship with the Russians.We have a transactional relationship with Europe,” mentioned Gandhi.
Speaking of neighbouring nations, Gandhi mentioned India now not shared the identical relationship with its previous pals.
“Today Nepal is angry with us. If you go to Nepal and you speak to the Nepali people they are furious with what has happened. Sri Lankans have given a port to the Chinese. The Maldives is disturbed. Bhutan is disturbed. So we have disrupted our foreign partners and our neighbourhood,” mentioned Gandhi.
He mentioned the financial system, “India’s pride”, was badly hit with the worst financial progress in 50 years, the best unemployment in 40 to 50 years.
“Our strengths have suddenly become our weaknesses,” Gandhi mentioned whereas dwelling on why the Chinese needled India at the moment.
