Taking a dig at the Narendra Modi-led government’s inability to defuse tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), and the alleged invasion of Chinese troops into Indian territory, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi asked Modi to tell the nation “the date by which he will throw the Chinese out of Indian territory”.
Rahul Gandhi said on Twitter, “Dear PM, In your 6pm address, please tell the nation the date by which you will throw the Chinese out of Indian territory. Thank you.”
In your 6pm address, please tell the nation the date by which you will throw the Chinese out of Indian territory.

The Prime Minister is set to address the nation at 6 pm on Tuesday (October 20). Although the topic of discussion is not known, it is speculated that Modi will be talking about the current situation with COVID-19 in the country.
Rahul Gandhi has been steadily criticising several moves by the BJP government, including the manner of handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, the migrant crisis and economic slump that were results of the COVID-induced lockdown, the economic stimulus package that was announced to revive the economy, and the border stand-off with China along the LAC in eastern Ladakh.
