Hope Parliament Sends Message That Nation Stands With Soldiers”: PM modiSeptember 14, 2020
Parliament Session: The PM said until there is a vaccine, “we cannot drop our guards”. “This parliament session being held under special circumstances, MPs have chosen the path of doing their duty in COVID times,” he said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his traditional comments before the parliament session, delivered a strong message on the China dispute at the border. “We hope parliament and all members will unitedly send the message that the nation stands with our soldiers,” PM Modi said.
“Our soldiers are standing firm at the borders with a lot of courage, passion and strong resolve to protect their motherland. They are standing on difficult heights and in a few days, will weather snow. In the same manner, I am confident parliament will send a message, in one voice, that it stands firmly behind soldiers guarding our borders,” said the Prime Minister.
Chinese aggression since May at the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto border between the two countries, and the government’s response, is expected to be raised by the opposition in the 18-day truncated monsoon session, the first to be held since the coronavirus outbreak gripped the world.
