“If We Lost 20 Jawans, Toll Double On Chinese Side”, Says Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad

“You all must have noticed that they have not come out with any figure,” Ravi Shankar Prasad said referring to India’s response after recent terror attacks.

New Delhi| Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, talking on. China crisis today, said if anyone casts an “evil eye”, India can give a fitting reply. He also said that  if 20 jawans lost their lives in the June 15 brawl in the Galwan river Valley in Ladakh, “the toll is double on the Chinese side”

China has never revealed the number of casualties on their side,  in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed in the line of duty. This was the worst border clash between the two countries since 1967.

Though the Indian army sources have said at least 45 of the Chinese soldiers were killed or injured, the Chinese have officially acknowledged only the death of one commanding officer.

“Now you can hear about only two Cs’ – Coronavirus and China. We believe in peace and solve problems through discussion, but if somebody casts an evil eye on India, we will give a befitting reply…if our 20 jawans have sacrificed their lives, then the toll is double on the Chinese side,” the Union Law Minister was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. He was addressing a virtual rally for voters in Bengal, where elections are scheduled next year.

“You all must have noticed that they have not come out with any figure,” Ravi Shankar Prasad said referring to India’s response after recent terror attacks.

He also mentioned surgical strikes across the Line of Control after the Uri terror attack and the air strike deep inside Pakistan after 40 soldiers were killed in Pulwama last year.

“When our PM is saying that the sacrifice of our jawans won’t go in vain, it has a meaning. Our government has the will to deliver,” the union minister said.

He also said that by blocking 59 Chinese apps, India had carried out a “digital strike” to protect the data of countrymen.
