Fury Mounts in India Over Chinese Border Clash, Opposition Blasts PM For Remaining Silent

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming under intense criticism from the opposition Congress Party for not condemning China for a December 9th military skirmish in the Tawang sector along their disputed border in northeast Arunachal Pradesh.

Congress Party MPs walked out of parliament last week to protest the PM’s refusal to explain the government’s response. Then, on Sunday, they accused the PM of “running away” from the issue and suggested that the government’s “close ties” with Beijing are getting in the way of a forceful response.
