The Congress's communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted that PM Modi is "incapable of sending a strong message to China".
"As Modi ji 'hugs' his friend, President Xi Jinping today in Wuhan, China, will he remember his innate duty to protect India's strategic interests and question China on occupation of Dokalam impacting India's national security?" Mr Surjewala tweeted.
"India is facing increasingly aggressive China to intrude into the 'Chicken's Neck' - Siliguri Corridor by building a new road through South of Doklam but why is Modi Govt clueless and incapable to send a strong message to China?" he said.
"Does the Prime Minister accept the failure of his Cabinet Ministers to confront China on creation of 'full-fledged Chinese Military Complex' in Doklam right up to 10m from Indian Army post, during their visit on April 20-24 as an abdication of their duty to the Nation?" Surjewala asked.
