Will Modi show courage on Doklam issue, asks Cong
New Delhi: The Congress party on Friday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi whether he will remember his innate duty of protecting India's strategic interests by raising the Doklam issue with China that impacts national security.
Indian National Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala took a dig at the prime minister, saying Modi may not be able to show "red eyes" as he "loftily promised", but will he show the courage and conviction to do plain-speaking on Doklam and defend India's interests.
Prime Minister Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday began talks at an unprecedented two-day informal summit in Wuhan, during which they will have a series of one-on-one
conversations focusing on bilateral, global and regional issues.
Modi, who arrived here in the central Chinese city early Friday for the informal summit, began talks soon after President Xi hosted a grand welcoming ceremony for him.
