PM Modi alleged that the then Congress-led authorities underneath Indira Gandhi carelessly handed over Katchatheevu island to Sri Lanka.

A heated change between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress has ignited each on-line and offline platforms following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion towards the Congress relating to the Katchatheevu island dispute with Sri Lanka.

PM Modi alleged that the then Congress-led authorities underneath Indira Gandhi carelessly handed over Katchatheevu island to Sri Lanka. He emphasised this level by citing a media report and mentioned, “Weakening India’s unity, integrity and interests has been Congress’ way of working for 75 years and counting.”  

In response, Congress Chief Mallikarjun Kharge questioned Modi’s timing in citing the problem, suggesting it was a ploy for political achieve ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. Kharge wrote on X, “Pradhan Mantri @narendramodi ji, you have suddenly woken up to the issues of territorial integrity and national security in your 10th year of misrule. Perhaps, elections are the trigger. Your desperation is palpable.”

The controversy stems from an RTI reply obtained by Tamil Nadu’s BJP president Ok Annamalai, which make clear the 1974 resolution by the Indira Gandhi authorities to relinquish management of Katchatheevu to Sri Lanka. This resolution, in accordance with BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi, has resulted within the seize and imprisonment of Tamil Nadu fishermen by Sri Lankan authorities.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah joined the fray, accusing Congress of undermining India’s unity and integrity. “Slow claps for Congress! They willingly gave up Katchatheevu and had no regrets about it either. Sometimes an MP of the Congress speaks about dividing the nation and sometimes they denigrate Indian culture and traditions. This shows that they are against the unity and integrity of India. They only want to divide or break our nation,” he mentioned.
