Both Congress and the BJP have been exchanging jibes since the Galwan valley incident with Congress questioning BJP over its handling of the situation
Since the incident, the Congress party has been accusing the BJP government over its lapses. Its leaders said the government is not revealing the truth and has surrendered to China's aggression at the border. Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari also questioned the central government on how much of India's territory has been occupied by China. Responding to these questions, the BJP said that the opposition has been damaging the morale of armed forces when the soldiers are busy defending the border and asked the Congress party to rise above petty politics and stand in solidarity with the national interest.
