Govt adopting weak strategy by handing over rail contract to Chinese firm: Priyanka Gandhi

New Delhi, Jun 18 (PTI) Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday accused the government of adopting a weak strategy and kneeling down before China by 'handing over' a rail contract to a Chinese firm.

She said the Centre should give a strong message to China.

'Twenty of our soldiers have been martyred. In such a situation, the central government should give a strong message, but the government has adopted a weak strategy of kneeling down by handing over the contract of Delhi-Meerut semi high-speed rail corridor to a Chinese company. All Indian companies are also competent to build this corridor,' she said in a tweet in Hindi.

She also shared a media report claiming that a Chinese company has got the Rs 1126 crore contract for Delhi-Meerut rapid rail, amid the stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops.
