India’s Modi Wraps Up Ladakh Visit with a Swipe at China

July 3, 2020 (EIRNS)—According to the Hindustan Times, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi “saluted the soldiers of the Indian Army who are deployed in Ladakh,” and told soldiers posted along the Line of Actual Control between India and China, that their courage had sent a message to the world. The newspaper reports Modi saying that “tales about their valor were being spoken in every house across the country.”
