New Delhi: Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday attacked the Congress party and said that it was Congress who did not work on infrastructure at border areas, as reported by the news agency ANI. Responding to the protest by Congress and opposition leaders demanding discussion on the India-China faceoff at Tawang, Rijiju said that Congress is raising a sensitive issue which is not good.

He also said that in 2005 when Bharatiya Janata Party was in opposition and raised the China border issue the then leader of the House Pranab Mukherjee and then PM Manmohan Singh said that the issue should be dealt with internally as the issue is sensitive.

“In 2005, when we were in opposition & raised the China border issue, the then leader of the House Pranab Mukherjee & then PM Manmohan Singh said that instead of discussing it in Parliament, we should deal with it internally as the issue is sensitive,” Rijiju said as quoted by ANI.

“After that, we didn’t raise the issue. Congress is forgetting that and is raising a sensitive issue which isn’t good. It was congress who didn’t work on infrastructure at border areas,” he further said.
