- India will win both ‘wars’ against China says Arvind Kejriwal
- Chief Minister of Delhi says we will win the war at the border as well as the war against the virus originated in China
In the middle of the face-off with China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladhak, the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal, today, said that India will win both the wars against the dragon – one at the border and another against the deadly virus which originated from Wuhan.
During the press conference, today, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Today we are fighting two wars against China – one at the border and another against the virus from China. Our 20 brave soldiers did not back down, we will also not retreat until we win both the wars,”.
His remark came after 20 Indian soldiers, including an officer from the Indian Army, lost their lives in a violent face-off with the Chinese soldiers at the Galwan Valley in Ladhak on the night of 15th June.
Kejriwal said, “Our doctors, nurses, and soldiers are all fighting and the people of the country are standing beside them. The entire country has to fight at both the fronts united. This should not be politicised. We have to fight against China and coronavirus,”.
Meanwhile, the traders’ body, Confederation of All Indian Traders (CAIT) has burnt the Chinese goods in Delhi’s main market Karol Bagh demonstrating the resentment and anger against the murder of 20 Indian soldiers in the face-off last week in the Galwan Valley.
CAIT had said, “This demonstration is a reflection of the boiling anger in the hearts and minds of Indian traders and citizens against China’s continued antagonism towards India. Due to the prevailing state of COVID-19 pandemic, this demonstration was done by adopting all measures of social distancing and safety precautions,”.
Secretary General of CIAT, Praveen Khandelwal said that the consumers and the traders across the country have displayed great support in boycotting the Chinese goods.
