Accusing the government of following a meek foreign policy towards its neighbours, especially China, RSS has said India should summon the Chinese ambassador and "give a talk down" on incursions by its army into the Indian territory.
"If China could summon our ambassador there, a lady, now our Foreign Secretary, in the middle of the night for a talk down, India could at least show some guts and summon the Chinese ambassador and give a talk down and let the world know about it," RSS mouthpiece Organiser said in its issue dated September 27.
The editorial states that despite repeated violations of the border by the Chinese Red Army in Arunachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Leh and Sikkim, India was downplaying the issue.
On reports of two ITBP men getting injured in firing by Chinese army in Sikkim, it said: "This was the first violation with weapons by China since the India-China treaty in 1996 not to use weapons, whatever the provocation".
"What is surprising is the meekness of India's response," it said, warning about Pakistan and Nepal acting against India.
"The government is allowing anti-India sentiments to grow (in Nepal) and is deliberately seeking to shake hands with China.... Nepal would be swallowed (by China) in a friendly smile. It would pose fresh dangers to India geographically, strategically, politically and culturally," it said.
