Broken by allegations of corruption and the BJP’s subversive relations with China, the Congress party replied on Saturday to the ruling party with 10 pointed questions about its relations with the Chinese Communist Party and Beijing. Faced with growing questions about the confrontation in Ladakh with Chinese troops which left 20 dead among Indian soldiers last week, the BJP has launched accusations against the leadership of Congress in recent days.
Attacking BJP leader JP Nadda for “his attempts to distract and divert national security and territorial integrity issues”, Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said the party itself “was afraid questions asked about his deeply-rooted Chinese relations “”.
He published a list of 10 questions that include the BJP’s links with the China Association for International Friendly Contacts (CAIFC) and its interactions with the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
“What is the link between the BJP and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)? What is the historical relationship between the BJP and the CCP of which BJP-era president Shri Rajnath Singh spoke during a delegation’s visit of the CCP on January 30, 2007 and reiterated by him at the meeting with members of the CCP Politburo on October 17, 2008? “Congress asked
“Why did Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (‘RSS’) travel to China in January 2009 at the invitation of the CCP? Why was an RSS delegation invited by the CCP when it was not not a political party and what discussions have taken place on our sensitive state of Arunachal Pradesh as also Tibet? “he asked.

He also dared the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) – the ideological mentor of the BJP – to declare his donors, including foreigners, like the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, which has been the subject of numerous accusations by the party this week.
“Will the BJP declare the names of the donors from whom it has received thousands of crores from donations through electoral bonds?” Congress declared, as well as other questions on party funding, the RSS and other associated organizations.
The questions came in response to the BJP’s brutal attack on the Gandhi family, who heads the Congress, and allegations of irregularity in the transfer of 20 lakh rupees from the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund to the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF) ) in 2005, during Congress – the Manmohan Singh government.
