Rajnath to take questions on LAC stand-off in Rajya Sabha today | India News

NEW DELHI: The government will answer some of the apprehensions raised by the opposition parties regarding India-China border stand-off in the eastern Ladakh region as defence minister Rajnath Singh is likely to speak in Rajya Sabha on Thursday.
The rules of the Upper House allow members to ask supplementaries after a statement. According to sources, after the defence minister’s statement, opposition leaders will speak and Singh may give clarifications. A decision in this regard was taken in a meeting of floor leaders of Rajya Sabha, which was attended by Singh along with parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi and leader of the House Thawarchand Gehlot.
Congress had staged a walkout in Lok Sabha at the end of Singh’s statement on Tuesday but failed to persuade other opposition parties like Trinamool, NCP or DMK to join them. Singh made a suo motu statement in Lok Sabha on Tuesday, saying China has been very clearly conveyed that any attempt to “unilaterally” change the status quo along the LAC is not at all acceptable, and that India’s armed forces are ready to deal with “all contingencies” in the high-altitude region.
