K. Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, after attending the all India party meeting, called for a battle plan.
Mr. Rao said, India needs to have a Rann Neeti (battle plan) and not Raj Neeti (politics) in India-China clash. He urged the Centre to not compromise on matters related to national securities.
KCR suggested India to adopt a short term and a long term strategies to counter China. He said, “We will stand by the Centre during such times. With stable governance in the country and India’s emergence as an economic powerhouse, China has been resorting to such tactics. We must stand united and support our Armed Forces.”
The Telangana CM said, “China’s attitude has become very infamous all over the world.”
Pointing the previous clash with China, K. Chandrashekhar Rao said China’s confrontations with India is now new as similar clashes have occured since 1957.
Mr. Rao explained and said,“Due to the vast stretch of border extending over thousands of kilometers, such skirmishes have been occurring regularly. China is a threat to India and hence, we must deal with it strategically.”
He further added, “We have been vocal about Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and declared that Aksai Chin is our territory which was occupied by China. We are also strengthening strategic locations in Galwan Valley. All these actions may have forced China to take such drastic measures.”
Mr. Rao said India is a peace loving country, but there should be a limit to its patience as well.
He reiterated that the country must defend itself strongly and wanted the Central Government not to compromise on issues concerning national defence and security as well as protect its interest.
Referring to the action taken by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Indira Gandhi during Bangladesh war, Mr. Rao said, “During the Bangladesh war in 1970, Atal Bihari Vajpayee lauded Indira Gandhi as Goddess Durga. We need to adopt such spirit and strongly support the Centre as well as the Prime Minister. The Telangana State government and its people will stand with the Centre at such times.”
Speaking on the chance to enhance econominical situation in India, KCR said China is held responsible for the spread of the Novel Coronavirus, due to which it became unpopular. Many multinational corporations are shifting out of China and looking for investment in India.
The Chief Minister said, “From 2014 to 2017, the FDI increased from $36 billion to $61 billion. There is a possibility of further increase in FDIs. Several people are ready to shift their companies from China to Telangana State as well. China is not happy with these developments.”
