Former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram questioned BJP president JP Nadda for his statement that the UPA was silent on the Chinese incursions when Manmohan Singh was Prime Minister. Chidambaram said Nadda should ask Modi to explain 2,264 such incursions since 2015.

Chidambaram said on Twitter that the BJP President had asked Manmohan Singh to explain the 600 Chinese incursions into India between 2010 and 2013. “Yes, there were incursions but no Indian territory was occupied by China and no lives of Indian soldiers were lost in violent clashes. Will Nadda please ask the present PM to explain the 2264 Chinese incursions since 2015? I bet he will not dare to ask that question,” Chidambaram said.

Meanwhile, a meeting of the Congress Working Committee here on Tuesday will discuss the situation along the Chinese borders. The Congress has been critical of the Centre's handling of the situation.
