Union minister Jitendra Singh today played down the heightened rhetoric by Beijing over the Dokalam standoff, stating that India was fully equipped to face any challenge.
He said the government was confident about the steps it was taking in this regard.
“We are well equipped to face any challenge whether externally or internally,” Singh told reporters here.
The MoS PMO was responding to a question about the recent ‘threat’ by China through its official media asking India to withdraw troops from the Sikkim sector.
“I think for us the more important thing is to see what we are doing. I am not here to respond to what somebody is tweeting from the opposition parties. We are confident about what we are doing,” he said.
