DHARAMSALA, July 19: Former defense minister of India has called on the Indian government to reverse its stand on the Tibet issue and support its independence.
Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi Party leader and Former Defense Minister of India, has urged the Indian government to reverse its stand on the Tibet issue and support Tibetan independence, reasoning that China, in collaboration with Pakistan, has made full preparations to attack the country.
“India is today facing a big danger from China. I have been cautioning the central government for years. China has joined hands with Pakistan. It has made full preparation to attack India,” a report published by deccanherald.com quoted Yadav as saying in the Lok Sabha, as tensions between the two neighbours escalates in the Dokalam plateau.
“China is India’s biggest opponent. What has the government done? In Kashmir, the Chinese army has allied with the Pak army,” Yadav was further quoted as saying.
Acknowledging that accepting China’s sovereignty over Tibet was a blunder, Yadav is of the opinion that it’s time to right the wrong now.
The Samajwadi Party leader also spoke against Chinese goods surging in the Indian market.
