According to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Modi’s “red eye” is covered with Chinese glasses because the Opposition and Centre are standing off in Parliament over discussions about the clashes between Indian soldiers and Chinese soldiers last week.

The Congress president tweeted: “It seems that the “red eye” of the Modi government is covered with Chinese glasses.” Are we not allowed to criticize China in the Indian parliament? ”

A group of Congress MPs, led by Sonia Gandhi, and Trinamool Congress lawmakers walked out of the House Wednesday, accusing the government of preventing a discussion about the India-China border.

A discussion on the “Indo-China border situation” was demanded by Congress’ Leader of the House Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury as soon as the Question Hour ended. In 1962, late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru allowed Lok Sabha to talk about the India-China war.

“We’ve been demanding a border discussion between India and China. Chowdhury says Jawaharlal Nehru gave 165 MPs a chance to speak during the 1962 India-China war, and a decision was taken after that.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said the Business Advisory Committee will decide about the Congress leader’s request.

As the Speaker went on with the proceedings, the Congress and TMC walked out in protest, saying the government wouldn’t let them discuss the India-China border.

Sudip Bandyopadhyay, also requesting a discussion, said TMC members were staging a walkout to protest the government’s “attitude”.
