In an attempt to corner NDA government once again, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to explain how China managed to widen its road in Dokalam despite the presence of Indian troops.
The Congress vice-president took to Twitter and wrote,” Modiji, once you're done thumping your chest, could you please explain this?”
Gandhi's comment comes a day after sources said China maintained a sizeable presence of troops near the site of the Dokalam standoff with India and had started widening a road, around 12 km from the area of conflict.
Troops of India and China were locked in a 73-day standoff in Dokalam that began from June 16 over road construction activity at the India-Bhutan-China trijunction.
The tension eased after talks between top officials of both the countries.
