Top Headlines: For Modi standoff was event, Chinese still in Doklam: Rahul Gandhi

Updated 25 Aug 2018 09:07 AM

 Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he views the Doklam issue as an event and added that Chinese presence is still there.

Gandhi was speaking at an event in London in the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS).

"I don't have the details of Doklam, so I can't answer how I would've handled it differently. What I can tell you is that Doklam is not an unrelated episode, it's not a one off, it is not a border issue, it is a strategic issue. 

"It is a part of a sequence of events and Doklam was a crisis that happened because the government is episodic," he added.

Gandhi further said: "...the government and the PM view things very much from an event's perspective. I view Doklam as a process, a point in the process. The PM views Doklam as an event."

He said: "So I would look at the process and I would tackle the process and I am pretty confident that Doklam wouldn't have happened...because you could've stopped Doklam if you were carefully watching the process."
