Amid the border tension at Line of Actual Control in Ladakh between India and China, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his silence on the matter."Did you hear him say anything on China, have you heard him say the word China over the last couple of months?
Why do you think he's not saying it, because he doesn't want to take the attention of the people of this country to face that China has occupied our land.

That is the most important issue right now," said Rahul Gandhi.
