Doklam standoff was avoidable had Centre been more careful: Rahul

Congress President Rahul Gandhi suffered a heavy backlash on Friday after denying having the details on the Doklam issue.  He was talking at the Institute of Strategic Studies in London and spoke on the Doklam issue after a question was asked to him.

“Doklam is not an isolated issue. It was a part of a sequence of events, it was a process. Prime Minister is episodic. He views Doklam as an event. If he was carefully watching the process, he could’ve stopped it,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Later to a question on how he would have handled it, Gandhi said, “I do not have details of Doklam so I cannot answer how I would have handled it differently.”
