PM’s Silence on China Issue During Address to Nation Leaves People Disappointed
GUWAHATI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's most anticipated address to the nation at 4 PM on June 30 left a lot of people disappointed.
The PM announced a massive relief package under the Pradhan Mantri Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojana 2020 that would be extended till November 2020, but failed to make even a passing mention of the conflict with China that is currently on along the country’s northern borders.
Given the ongoing tension between China and India at the LAC, the nation was expecting a strong statement regarding the same from PM Modi and also an update about the activities with the warring neighbour.
However, PM Modi chose to be completely silent on the issue and decided to speak only about the Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojana Scheme and its extension till November.
While on June 29, the government of India had decided to ban 59 Chinese apps owing to privacy issues and data diversion, the PM’s stoic silence about this burning issue during his address to the nation has taken everyone by surprise.
