China's interference is increasing day by day, which is posing as a serious threat to the integrity and sovereignty of India.
This was alleged by BJP state spokesperson Ramesh Arora, expressing party's serious concern over the development of the Indo-China border.
Arora said the Chinese army used to dictate terms towards this side of International border, which tantamount to create pressure over the Indian government and many attempts were made to violate the International border by its forces during the past one year.
Earlier too, the road construction was stopped by the Indian government on this side of the border due to the existing perception of threat.
Recently, the irrigation project at Leh was suspended by the government, which was initiated six years ago.
On earlier two occasions, the Chinese tried to stop the project, but the work was not postponed/stopped or suspended, but this time they were able to get it stopped, which was unfortunate.
Arora said India was a sovereign country and interference by any mean or by any big power was undesirable and should not be tolerated. India was a big power having nuclear potential too.
"We should frame our policies in such a manner, which will reflect zero tolerance towards any external interference or intrusion. The state government should react immediately over their territorial integrity and as per the constitution of the state," he added.
"China has even marked its presence in Gilgit-Baltistan in connivance with Pakistan. State chief minister Omar Abdullah reacts over much smaller issues for political gain, but doesn't react over such an important issue, which has direct impact on the security of the state and that of the country," he said.
Arora appealed to all political parties to come forward irrespective of their ideology over this issue of common interest, which is posing threat to the national unity and integrity.
