Govt does not have strategy on China:Rahul Gandhi

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday alleged that the country's national security is ''unpardonably compromised'' as the government does not have a strategy on China.He cited a news report where the External Affairs Ministry and the Chief of Defence Staff had a different take on the China border issue.

Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Bipin Rawat on Thursday said the controversy about the Chinese coming into the Indian territory and building a new village is ''not true'', and that the villages were well within the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

He also asserted that China has not transgressed the Indian ''perception'' of the LAC. In its recent report, the US Department of Defence said China built a large village inside disputed territory between its Tibet Autonomous Region and India's Arunachal Pradesh in the eastern sector of the LAC.
