The BJP, according to Shashi Tharoor, has lost the national security narrative

Patna Shashi Tharoor, a senior Congress lawmaker, criticized the central government on Friday for its lack of action on China’s border disputes and for its disregard for national security.

What happened after the BJP brought up national security in its battle for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections? China crossed the boundaries and obliterated the mutual understanding that had grown between the two nations over time. Speaking to reporters here, Tharoor said, “They (China) knew that the Narendra Modi government only talks but doesn’t take any action.”

“We had 65 monitoring stations on the India-China border where the forces of both nations had the right to undertake patrolling for 45 years, if the BJP is running in the current national security elections. Currently, 26 of them are under Chinese occupation, and the Indian Army is not permitted to enter them.

“The Modi administration has not taken any action in this regard. In Ladakh’s Galwan Valley, twenty of our men lost their lives,” Tharoor said.

Senior BJP officials had already said that PoK is part of India and would be reclaimed from Pakistan at any cost, which is when Tharoor made his comments.

“The BJP’s national security narrative failed during this election, so its leaders raised issues of Ram Temple and Hindutva,” Tharoor said. We now have the storyline for the current Lok Sabha elections established.

“We surveyed the public to see whether their way of life had changed throughout the ten years of Narendra Modi’s administration. Do regular people have jobs? Has their buying power grown? However, others claim that they have never experienced anything like it in their lives. We also polled the public on the merits of giving the BJP another opportunity, according to Tharoor.
