Chinese incursion: Mulayam calls the government 'coward'

New Delhi: The government's China policy came under fierce attack from the Opposition in the Lok Sabha on Monday. Opposition MPs led by Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh described the government's conduct on the Chinese intrusion into eastern Ladakh as 'cowardly'.

"I have never seen a more coward government in Indian history. They cannot say that our armed forces are ready. They are now sending a minister. Is the minister going to beg," Mulayam asked in the Lok Sabha.

"What is being perceived from the recent developments is that China is prepared to attack us. The Prime Minister must reply and tell the House as to what is the government doing," Trinamool Congress leader Sudip Bandhopadhyay said.

The MPs accused the government of holding back the armed forces from retaliating. Some MPs even called for war if that was what China wanted.
