CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday termAed Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s walkout from the parliamentary defence committee as totally justified. He said as both China and Pakistan are breathing down India, the committee should have been discussing strategic security issues and the urgent requirements of our forces and not the uniform, etc.
Captain said that Rahul was right to walk out of the meeting which, rather than talking about what the forces need to combat the threat of China and Pakistan, was discussing other issues. The way Rahul and other Congress members were treated was atrocious, said Captain Amarinder, citing reports that the party MP was not allowed to speak. The Chief Minister pointed out that Rahul had wanted to discuss more important and larger issues, but was not allowed to speak.
