(TibetanReview.net, Jul21, 2017) – India’s former Defence Minister Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav has on Jul 19 asked New Delhi to reverse its stand on the Tibet issue and support its independence. The leader of the Samajwadi Party has alleged that China was ready to attack India in collaboration with the country’s archenemy Pakistan in the backdrop of the continuing standoff in Doklam, a Bhutanese territory near the tri-junction of the three countries.

Raising the matter in the Lok Sabha, the Lower House of Indian parliament, he asked the government to inform Parliament what it had done to meet any likely challenge from China.

Pointing out that he had been cautioning the central government for years on this matter, Mr Yadav has said India was facing a big danger from China today; that it had joined hands with Pakistan, and made full preparation to attack India.

Speaking during the Zero Hour, Mr Yadav has contended, “China is India’s biggest opponent. What has the government done? In Kashmir, the Chinese army has allied with the Pak army.”

He has accused China of having buried nuclear weapons in Pakistan to target India and suggested that the Indian intelligence agencies “would know better”.

He has called India’s stand on Tibet, which accepts the region as part of China, a “mistake” and the time had come to support its independence as it had been a traditional buffer between the two big nations.

He has said it was India’s responsibility to protect Bhutan and accused China of eyeing Nepal as well.

He has also spoken against massive amounts of Chinese goods flooding the market in India.
