Is India prepared for Chinese aggression?
- Imphal Times Editorial :: February 06, 2021 -



At a time when the Congress party strike hard to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharam for not giving priority to Defence sector in her Budget 2021-22 speech, main counterpart of the country, China seems to be preparing for war with India.

In a press conference, Congress leader Mr. Chidamabaram had stated that FM Nirmala Sitharam did not mention Defence at all, as if the Chinese had vacated occupied Indian territory.

She did not mention that Defence expenditure in 2021-22 will see no rise. It is flat at 3,47,088 crore, almost the same as the 3,43,822 crore in the current year.

Chidambaram critical comments is perhaps a wake-up call for the nation as the tension between India and China is escalating and as reported in the South China Morning Post, China had tested its latest anti-missile intercept test.

Even as the Chinese Defence Ministry said that the test was not targeted at any particular country and was defensive in nature, the newspaper also reported the test intended as a warning to India quoting PLA source.

The Chinese preparation is more like a defensive missile against Indian Agni –V range which can fire upto 5,000 kilometers.

The South China Morning Post also reported by quoting the Chinese military source saying that the missile is a technology that China has been developing for a long while.

The Thursday test could be aimed at warning India, which used to adopt nuclear blackmail strategy when dealing with China, it added.

China’s attempt to dominant the entire South and Far East Asia in the post COVID-19 pandemic is an open secret.

Its open support the Myanmar Military regime which had imprison all democratically elected leaders including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is known and Myanmar of course is the best strategic location for China if it had to declare war in India.

Mrs. Nirmala Sitharam even though clarified that priority has been given to the defence , among others in the Budget 2021-22, critic felt that no at a time when the country need more budget for defence , just a rise of nearly 4000 crore rupees is not enough and would certainly demoralize the Indian Defence force.

With the kind of China’s strategy to control India either from military angle or economic invasion, India need full preparation at the moment.

Already China had intruded to Arunachal Pradesh constructing over 300 houses in Indian Territory. If China manages to put Myanmar under its control the next target will be surely to all the Indian North East states bordering Myanmar.

Interestingly, India seems not prepare for defense of its country’s North East region. The fencing along the Indo-Myanmar is still yet to be completed.

This would give more chances to China who has been always looking to intrude the country at time.
