New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said that it was monitoring the situation after reports claimed that the Chinese side was constructing a second bridge over the Pangong Tso Lake in the Union Territory of Ladakh.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today tweeted “”China builds 1st bridge on Pangong GOI: We are monitoring the situation. China builds 2nd bridge on Pangong GOI: We are monitoring the situation. India’s National security & territorial integrity is non-negotiable. A timid & docile response won’t do. PM must defend the Nation”.
However, The MEA, said the area where the reported construction is being undertaken is under the occupation of China for decades, with spokesperson Arindam Bagchi asserting that India monitors such developments.
