The Congress denied as “fake news” media reports that its vice president met Luo in the capital amid the China-India border stand-off at Doklam in Sikkim. Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, in a series of tweets said some news channels were running “fake news” on Rahul’s alleged meeting with the Chinese Ambassador.
