Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Leh a few days back to interact with the Indian troops. He visited Ladakh capital after the violent standoff at the Galwan Valley in the eastern Ladakh.

However, his visit did not go well with the opposition Congress as the party claimed the pictures released during his visit are not real and just a photo-op.

Congress leader P. Chidambaram took to Twitter to Tweet a picture collage. The picture collage consists of pictures that were clicked during the visit of former PM Manmohan Singh who went to meet injured soldiers.

The Congress leader compared both the visits and termed Modi's visit as a publicity stunt and a set-up.

The Congress party expressed doubts over the conference hall that has no water bottles, equipment, and medicines. The party also wondered why there is a photographer and no doctor.

Following this, the Indian Army rubbished all the allegations and said the medical ward was set up in an audio-video training room to meet the needs. Indian Army even issued an official statement in this regard.
