New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) The Congress on Saturday sharpened its attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the India-China face-off, accusing him of giving inconsistent statements on the issue. It said the Chinese soldiers have occupied ‘Y' junction in Ladakh and are very close to Burtse town.

Addressing a virtual press conference, former Union Minister and senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal gave the reference of ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu who gave four principles of warfare — subdue enemy without battle, exploit opponent's weaknesses, camouflage offence as defence and all warfare is based on deception.

“The Chinese are now using the same tactics with us. They have occupied the bottleneck ‘Y' junction in Ladakh's Depsang plains, which is 18 km inside the Indian territory in Ladakh,” Sibal said.

He said Indian soldiers used to patrol the area from the Burtse OP that went on till bottleneck ‘Y' junction. “And as the bottleneck Y is occupied by Chinese, now we cannot reach our patrol point number 14 and there is no access to that today,” Sibal said.
