Addressing a public rally in Ladakh’s Kargil area on August 25th, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi referred to the region as a strategically significant location and raised accusations against Prime Minister Modi regarding his statements on China’s encroachment on Indian land. Gandhi highlighted, “Ladakh is a strategic location… One thing is very clear, China has taken away India’s land.”

He expressed disappointment with PM Modi’s claim made during an opposition meeting that no part of Ladakh had been occupied by China, labeling it as a falsehood. Additionally, he remarked that Ladakh possesses an abundance of solar energy, a fact well-known to the BJP, and accused them of pursuing a land-grabbing agenda.

During the rally, Gandhi also discussed the “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” a journey he initiated from Kanyakumari to Kashmir to stand against the perceived hatred and violence propagated by the BJP-RSS in India. He shared the message that emerged from the yatra, which he described as, “We are setting up a shop of love in the marketplace of hatred.” Reflecting on his inability to visit Ladakh due to winter weather during the yatra, he underscored his commitment to including Ladakh in his journey this time.

Earlier, on August 20th, Rahul Gandhi had criticized PM Modi over the Indo-China border dispute. He relayed that locals he met in the union territory had informed him about China’s encroachment on Indian territory. Gandhi accused PM Modi of misleading the Indian populace and concealing his government’s incompetence.

Regarding the India-China border situation, the two countries engaged in their 19th round of Corps Commander Level talks on August 25th at the Chushul-Moldo meeting point in the Eastern Ladakh sector, aiming to resolve the prolonged military standoff. Since May 2020, India and China have been locked in a military standoff, initiated when China attempted to alter the status quo along the Line of Actual Control.

Despite having fought only one war in 1962, the border dispute between India and China has escalated repeatedly. Both nations have invested significantly in building robust road infrastructure and airfields along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), which functions as the de facto boundary separating them.
