Congress, BJP are China’s Puppets!

The India-China Strategic Economic Dialogue started in Beijing this week. Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission Mr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia led the Indian delegation. Doubtless this will greatly cheer the UPA cabinet. It might even help India achieve a 9 percent growth rate.

In the scramble to China the BJP is not being left behind.

Recently Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was in China striking economic deals. Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is slated to visit China by the end of this year on an invitation personally extended last month by the Chinese ambassador to India, Mr. Zhang Yan. He met the CM during the India-China Economic and Cultural Council meeting in Gandhinagar.  Mr. Modi has been to China twice before on official visits. Government sources said that he was very keen to develop strong relations with China and Chinese authorities were reciprocating.

Why shouldn’t they?

The leaders of both Congress and BJP are more subservient to Beijing than Raja Jaichand and Mir Jaffar were to their foreign masters.

Foreign Minister SM Krishna is crowing over the fact that America has recognized the terrorist links of Pakistan ’s ISI. The BJP leaders never tire of lambasting the Pakistanis for aiding and abetting terrorism. Fair enough! But from where does Islamabad draw its strength for defying the world to become the hub of global terrorism? Pushed into a corner by the world the ISI on Sunday released its report acknowledging that it had in the past allowed transfer of nuclear technology to other nations. The transfers occurred because of “the loose arrangement in those early days”. Islamabad was compelled to release the report in order to prevent the US from interrogating its rogue nuclear scientist AQ Khan held responsible for the proliferation.

Things did not work out as Islamabad planned or its masters in Beijing would have liked. British journalist Simon Henderson has acted as AQ Khan’s trusted confidante for many years. Whenever Islamabad harassed Khan, Henderson would leak a letter to Western media implicating the Pakistan government. Now he has released an explosive and bitter letter written by Khan to his Dutch wife, Henny dated 2003. In that letter Khan has nailed the Pakistan military and the Chinese government for proliferation of nuclear technology and material. He has urged his wife to take a "tough stand" if Pakistani establishment "plays any mischief with me."

He wrote:

"Tell them they first used us and now playing dirty games with us… You know we had cooperation with China for 15 years. We put up a centrifuge plant at Hanzhong (km250 south-west of Xian). We sent 135 C-130 plane loads of machines, inverters, valves, flow meters, pressure gauges. Our teams stayed there for weeks to help and their teams stayed here for weeks at a time. Late minister Liu We, V. M. [vice minister] Li Chew, Vice Minister Jiang Shengjie used to visit us… the Chinese gave us drawings of the nuclear weapon, gave us kg50 enriched uranium, gave us 10 tons of UF6 (natural) and 5 tons of UF6 (3%). Chinese helped PAEC [Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, the rival organization to the Khan Research Laboratories] in setting up UF6 plant, production reactor for plutonium and reprocessing plant.”

Beijing’s mask is officially off. How Washington deals with its criminal negligence during all the time it was wooing Beijing and Islamabad is its own business. What should concern us is the role of the Indian politicians.

No Indian politician confronts China on its Pakistan policy.
Seeking business politicians crawl to Beijing which provides the strength that sustains the terror-aiding section of the Pakistan government to carry out its nefarious agenda.  History, surely, will damn the present political leaders of India cutting across party lines for displaying unparalleled slavishness to China and betraying India’s national interest. Ironically, there still stands a unanimous Parliamentary resolution forbidding the government from any contact with Beijing until India recovers every inch of territory illegally seized by China.

Future generations will marvel how such a contemptible class of corrupt politicians was ever allowed to rule India.

Comment A.Q. Khan's letter has been on the internet for quite a while before the Slimes chose to report it recently.
There are articles by Indian defense personnel on the internet which talk of providing a corridor for the Chinese through Indian territory to the Arabian sea! What is one to make of this?
Look at our interlocutors lead by Padgaonkar: can any group be more anti-national than this?
We have now come to such a state where one doesn't know what to say anymore.
There is a tremendous disconnect, an unbridgeable chasm, between the patriotism, toughness and bravery of common Indians and the despicable political class.
As Arun Shourie says: where is all this going to lead us?

Comment I used to think that only Sardarji was fooling us on China matter !!

But here there are a big lot of UPA and NDA top politicians fooling us on China matters - as the article indicates.

Really serious issue.

Why doesn't the nation talk straight forward who is friend and who is enemy, so that 'belief of aam aadmi' believe can put pressure on politicians to stay away ?

This is another example how leaders decide direction and hence fate of the citizens of a nation, although the citizens would do the same work and efforts in their life irrespective of what direction politicians take. It's the top politicians (leaders) decision solely that is going to affect whole nation. Ultimately - even in a democracy.

Not only politicians, it has become an acceptable practice for Indian corporates to open offices in China and import goods from this country. In the name of 'capitalization' they have no duty towards the nation they belong to. In fact, in name of capitalization they save themselves from performing what is called 'duty towards nation'.

Now, the most interesting question - given the fact that all politicians across parties lick chinese boot, if some party or some big leader wants to set the lines defined and talks tough as he/she should do in ultimate national interest - imagine what kind of hardships he/she is going to face. To imagine a few ...
A) Chinese will be determined to keep such a person away from power by all means
B) They would bribe/threaten/blackmail other politicians to set adverse environment on the target enemy
C) Chinese will bribe Indian media to demolish public image of such a politician
D) Any other game through diplomatic channels

- So, such a politician need to stand up against all such adversaries and overcome those challenges and attain the power using which he/she can change the wind.

When will we get such a leader ?

Comment Could it not be that if all the other avenues are blocked, people would approach those that are open.
Yes, I do not deny that those avenues that Modi (in particular) is approaching may have better long term consequences. It may be desperation, but definitely not anti-national. Here, I am not giving my opinion on Congress or opportunistic Advani (BJP).
Well, for Modi the doors have been closed by US and it's allies for the complicit role in riots. It is just not Muslim lobby, but equally powerful christian conversion lobbies who have been instrumental in this. Else, this should have happened with many of the leaders of organisation and country, who have been in a similar situation. It didn't happen because the christian conversion machinery in those countries didn't have any obstacle in their program execution.
Leaving aside the external context and purely focussing on the internal context, why those people who seems to have apprehension about Modi's china visit or economic summit, could not speak up against the centre ruled Sonia party and subservient Manmohan who have their vested interest in clamping Modi.
I feel that people from Modi's constituency do have apprehension about the China since 1962, it is not a matter of courage that stops them (electorates) to voice against Modi for his China foray, but they know that their own countrymen would stab them if they are not economically self-reliant and also they have strong concern of the so called activities of christian missionaries.
Not to forget, that it was the British, Canada, US, Australia and Punjabi NRIs who in disguise also were supporting (morally, distorted facts and propagation of wrong information) through Pakistan, the terrorism ideology in Punjab.
It is the situational context, that is driving Modi, as it seems to me at the moment. I am speaking of Modi, because on relative terms, it seems to me that he is less corrupt and more patriotic.
Though, I like your articles.
