Prime Minister Narendra Modi has criticized the Congress Party for "callously" giving away the Katchatheevu Island to Sri Lanka in 1974. He made the comments shortly after a Right to Information (RTI) report revealed details about the island transfer under then-Prime Minister and Congress leader Indira Gandhi. Tagging the RTI report published by the Times of India, PM Modi described the newly disclosed information as "eye-opening and startling."
