"Over the last three years, the Congress has repeatedly demanded the BJP government takes the Opposition into confidence on issues involving national security. We reiterated this demand on June 30 as the current India-China border standoff raised grave concerns and serious implications for national security," said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
"The party reiterates that on issues of India's security, the entire country has to act as a unified pole. We shall support the government in every endeavour to defend our national interests," Surjewala said.
He added: "During the 10 years of UPA government, Congress always ensured the Opposition leaders were briefed on every such issue."
"Pursuant to our demand, it is satisfying to note the government has woken up after three years to brief the Opposition parties on the current and emergent issues facing the nation and has convened a meeting," the Congress leader said.
