Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan alleged that former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the Congress are responsible for the border conflict between India and China.
The CM was addressing the virtual rally in Chhattisgarh from Madhya Pradesh on Sunday.
He also attacked Congress top leaders over donations allegedly received by Sonia Gandhi-headed Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF) and accused former party chief Rahul Gandhi of "demoralising" the army with his statements.
"No prime minister from the Congress party ever dared to build a road on Indian side adjoining China. Why China is frustrated now? It is because Narendra Modi government has constructed roads on borders. China is frustrated because it is thinking that if India continues to grow then it will be the only country in the world, which can defeat them,” Chouhan said.

He commended bravery and martyrdom of Indian soldiers. "Our army personnel have taught a strong lesson to China and given a befitting reply to Chinese soldiers (in Galwan valley). I bow my head to our brave soldiers who have sacrificed their lives,” he added. He attacked Congress over the allegations of donations received by RGF from China in 2005-06.
"Sonia Gandhi ji should clarify about the Congress's connection with China. Due to mistake committed by one family, China occupied 43,000 sq kms of India’s land. The Congress should apologies to the nation," Chouhan remarked.
"The Congress has committed a sin and offence by demoralising the army. Rahul Gandhi asks questions. Rahul Baba when you will get wisdom?” he said.
