Capt: Need for well-defined policy on China

Chandigarh, January 27

Given China’s long-standing expansionist agenda, the IndianGovernment should have a clear and well-defined policy on its hostile neighbour, CM Capt Amarinder Singh said on Wednesday, warning that talks with Beijing alone would not lead anywhere.

While he hoped India got the better of China in the latest skirmish at Naku La on January 20, the CM, himself an ex-Army man, said India needs to improve and strengthen its military might. This incident, after the Galwan valley, shows that China hasn’t backed off, and has no intention to do so, from its expansionist policy.

The need for a strong military in the face of such threat at the border cannot be over-emphasised, he said. — TNS
