Congress on Monday attacked the Centre over the Chinese incursion in Ladakh last week, and questioned where is the coercive diplomacy of the NDA government. Former Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari tweeted "Transgression by China in Demchok Ladakh- Indian heardsman's habitat allegedly vandalized by PLA!Where is coercive Diplomacy of this govt?"
Virtually admitting that Chinese herdsmen had entered into the Indian territory in Ladakh last week, the government today said the men withdrew from the position after a flag meeting between armies of the two countries. "The Chinese went back after the flag meeting," Home Minister Rajnath Singh told reporters here, when asked about the reported incursion last week. The incident is reported to have taken place on July 25 at the Charding Nilu Nullah Junction in the Demchok sector along the Line of Actual Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
