Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Wednesday termed the killing of 20 Army personnel, including a colonel, during a stand off with Chinese troops in Ladakh as “extremely sad” and “shocking”.

In a series of tweets in Hindi, she said, “The news of martyrdom of 20 soldiers, including a colonel, in Ladakh during stand-off with Chinese troops is extremely sad and shocking (jhakjorne wala), especially when Government of India is working to diffuse border tension between both the countries. The government should take steps in the interest of the country with utmost alertness and ‘soojhboojh’ (wisdom)”.

In another tweet, she said, “The country is confident that the government will take the right decision at the right time while upholding its honour, and will not allow anyone to take even an inch of the nation’s land.”

She also said that it was good that the country had united at such a crucial juncture, while ignoring the government’s shortcomings and added that now the government has to stand the test of people’s expectations.
