Rahul Gandhi questioning integrity of soldiers, says Andhra BJP leader

Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], June 20 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh BJP leader Lanka Dinakar on Saturday slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and accused him of questioning the integrity of Indian soldiers at such a crucial time.

We are the sensible and responsible people, who give respect to our previous agreements and international treaties," Dinkar said.

"This is the time to unite each and every single citizen of the country. I pray to got that Rahul Gandhi should think sensibly and in the interest of our nation," he added.

This comes after 20 Indian Army personnel were killed in a violent face-off with the Chinese troops in the Ladakh's Galwan valley amid de-escalation talks on the intervening night of June 15 and 16. (ANI)
