I want to assure the House that our forces are committed to guarding our borders and ready to thwart any attempt that will be made to challenge it”.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge took a swipe at the Centre and said that the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be “honest” as national security issues would not politicise it.
Mallikarjun Kharge tweeted, “Again, our Indian Army soldiers have been provoked by the Chinese. Our jawans fought in a resolute manner, and a few of them were injured too. We are one with the nation on the issues of National Security and would not like to politicise it. But Modi Government should be honest”.
