New Delhi: Congress accused Prime MInisrter Modi of not allowing discussions on China along the border. It asked when the nation will have "China pe charcha".

On Saturday, the party asked why the PM is not taking the nation into confidence in the matter of China, PTI reported.

Congress's attack comes days after the Indian Army clashed with Chinese counterparts in the Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh. It said that Chinese build-up in Doklam is threatening the strategic "Siliguri Corridor", the gateway to northeastern states.

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge said in a tweet, "Chinese build-up in Doklam up to 'Jampheri Ridge' is threatening India's strategic 'Siliguri Corridor', the gateway to the Northeastern States! This is of utmost concern for our National Security! @narendramodi ji, When will the nation have... 'CHINA PE CHARCHA'?"

In another development, Congress general secretary communications Jairam Ramesh said that it is the political duty and moral responsibility of the prime minister to share his "mann ki baat" on the seven questions posed to him by Congress.

Ramesh shared the questions with his Twitter post and tweeted, "Don't deflect, distract and divert by getting your drum beaters to attack a man who has walked 20-25 km a day, listening to the pain, hope, and aspirations of the people of India for the past 100 days. Jawaab Do, Pradhan Mantri @narendramodi."

During his Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that the Union government was sleeping while China was preparing for war.

Jairam Ramesh asked the PM, "The nation wants to know...why are you insisting that there should be no debate in Parliament on the border situation and the challenges we face from China." "You have met the top Chinese leadership an unprecedented 18 times and recently shook hands with Xi Jinping in Bali. China launched an incursion into Tawang shortly thereafter and continues to unilaterally alter the border situation. Why are you not taking the nation into confidence?"

Ramesh asked why did the Prime Minister say on June 20, 2020, that "there has been no incursion by China into Indian territory in eastern Ladakh? "Why have you allowed the Chinese to stop our troops from accessing thousands of square kilometres in eastern Ladakh, where we were regularly patrolling prior to May 2020."

The Congress leader also questioned why the prime minister abandoned the plan approved by the Cabinet on 17 July 2013 to establish a Mountain Strike Corps.

"Why have you allowed Chinese companies to contribute to PM CARES Fund? Why have you allowed imports from China to zoom to record levels in the last two years," he asked.
