Counter China with Hong Kong and South China Sea: Congress advises Modi government

New Delhi, Oct 10: A controversy has been created over why Narendra Modi has invited Chinese President Xi Jinping’s to India for an ‘informal’ summit after the joint statement issued by Pakistan and China mentioned Jammu and Kashmir dispute to be resolved based on the UN charter.

The Congress questioned the Modi government’s move and asked why the Indian government is not doing enough to rebut Beijing. Congress leader Manish Tewari suggested that the Indian government must counter China’s latest stance on Kashmir with references to protests in Hong Kong, human rights violations in Xinjiang, South China Sea and other such issues.

On Wednesday, Beijing had said that it was ‘watching’ developments in Kashmir and said that it will support Pakistan on issues of its core interest. Later in the evening, China further urged India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir matter as per UN mandate.

“Xi Jinping says he is watching Kashmir but why does @PMOIndia/MEA not say 1)We are watching Pro-Democracy protests muzzled in Hong Kong. 2 )We are watching human rights violations in Xinjiang. 3 )We are watching continued oppression in Tibet 4 )We are watching South China Sea (sic),” Congress’ national spokesperson Manish Tewari said in a tweet on Thursday.

The Congress finds it shocking why the Indian government is playing like a second fiddle to China.Why the government is only issuing statements and meeting the leaders.
