"In our position, the whole of Arunachal Pradesh is Chinese territory and Tawang is only one place in it. We are claiming whole of that (Arunachal Pradesh). That is our position,"It is intriguing that this deplorable and irresponsible statement comes only days ahead of visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao's. Nation need not be surprised by the deafening silence of our PM & Left Parties. Our PM is waiting for Super PM's approval for reading the statement prepared by CPM and assorted communists.
The predicament of Indian communists (famous for their slogan Chairman Mao, Our Chairman) is understandable. After all, they were in forefront of champaign to allow Chinese President Hu Jintao address a joint session of Parliament. It will be hilarious, if Premier of a country who has evil designs on India's Territory is allowed to lecture us from the temple of our democracy. I am sure thousands of brave soldiers who laid down their life fighting Chinese aggression in 1965 would forgive our stupidity.
Also, its only days since CPM was Lobbying for Chinese Business Interest in India and People's Democracy, Weekly Organ of the Communist Party of India in a recent article writes
"It is, indeed, ironical that such a decision(of scrutinizing FDI from China) should come in the declared year of friendship between India and China. Further, it comes barely a month before the official state visit of the Chinese President,"Government of India should ask China to recall Ambassador Sun Yuxi. India should take cue from China's own reaction whenever someone made a statement contrary to Chinese One China Policy(Policy which states Taiwan to be province of China).
Tail Piece: When asked for his opinion CPM leader Sitaram Yechuri told mediapersons "These are historical issues, there are disputes, this is why these issues are being discussed," . Is Mr. Yechury trying to justify China's position by by stating that there were territory disputes. Isn't it high time CPM chose between China and India.
