Samajwadi Party chief and former defence minister Mulayam Singh Yadav sharply criticised the Congress-led UPA government on Friday, alleging inaction over the Chinese incursion in Ladakh.


“India has the world’s best and the bravest army, but the government was inert and weak. Parliament, assemblies or prime ministerships, all would be meaningless if the nation ceases to exist. What are India’s intelligence agencies, defence or foreign ministers doing,” he said.

He also scoffed at the idea of talks. 

“I have heard some minister is going for talks and plead with China to leave. The Chinese need to be raided out, they won’t go away otherwise.”

Time and again, he had warned the nation about China but his warnings have been ignored, Yadav said.
