Rahul Gandhi, China envoy meeting: After a big row erupted over whether Rahul Gandhi actually met the Chinese envoy, the Congress vice-president on Monday evening himself confirmed that he did. He confirmed the meet by posting a series of tweets. And in the process, he launched yet another scathing attack on PM Narendra Modi over the ongoing Sikkim standoff. Taking to Twitter, Rahul wrote, “It is my job to be informed on critical issues. I met the Chinese Ambassador, Ex-NSA, Congress leaders from NE & the Bhutanese Ambassador (sic).” Attacking the PM Modi led government, he said, “If Govt is so concerned abt me meeting an Amb,they shld explain why 3Ministers are availing Chinese hospitality while the border issue is on (sic).” “And for the record I am not the guy sitting on the swing while a thousand Chinese troops had physically entered India,” Rahul added in another tweet with pic of PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Earlier, in the day, a major controversy had erupted as there were reports that Rahul Gandhi had met Chinese envoy. However, Congress earlier denied the meeting but later confirmed the two had actually met.

Tweets by Rahul Gandhi:-

Congress clarified that Gandhi met ambassadors of China and Bhutan. The party did not specify when or where the meetings were held. Downplaying the meetings, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala called them a courtesy call and said envoys of neighbouring countries met Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the vice-president from time to time, PTI reported.

The entire controversy broke out at a time when China and India are engaged in a standoff in the Doklam area near the Bhutan tri-junction for the past three weeks after a Chinese Army’s construction party attempted to build a road.
