Leh (Ladakh),December 5,(Scoop News)-Referring to Bhartiya Janta Party(BJP)Prime Ministerial candidate, Narendar Modi’s allegations that Chinese were distributing free sim cards and mobile phones to the people living along the border in Ladakh, District Congress Committee (DCC) chief, Tsering Samphel,described the statement as unfortunate, baseless and unfounded.
Modi in a public rally at Jammu on Sunday last had said that these mobile phones were picking up the signals from Chinese mobile companies and were posing a major security threat to India.
Stongly rebutting,Samphel said these allegations were akin to labelling Ladakhis as anti-national.
He said the inputs provided to him by the local BJP activists from Leh were wrong and concocted and has damaged a deep rooted nationalist reputation of Ladakhis.
Condemning such irresponsible statement by the BJP leader, Samphel said these observations have demoralised the Ladakhi society at large.
Again, he said,the hoisting of tricolour flag on India’s Independence Day this year is out of context. “The Indian national flag is being regularly unfurled at all army and the ITBP posts in Demchok area”, Samphel said.
Taking a dig at the local BJP leader Thupstan Chhewang on his statement of October 6 last at village Sakti where he had assured the people that if BJP government came to power at the Centre, Bhoti language would be included in the 8th schedule of the Indian Constitution and Ladakh would be granted Union Territory (UT) status but the same found no mention in nearly an hour long speech of Modi on December 1.
