Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma and Mallikarjun Kharge attended a meeting where top Union ministers and officials briefed the political parties on the standoff between India and China.

Using maps and a power-point presentation, Jaishankar told Opposition leaders that although the dispute is between China and Bhutan, the Chinese are constructing roads near the worldwide border, which affects India's strategic interests, said sources.

Opposition leaders have been critical of the government for its handling of the China and Kashmir issues. Sharma said that Congress made its view clear that national security was the priority and advised the government to rise above politics and tackle the situation diplomatically.
