Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Farooq Abdullah on Monday asserted that India lacks the power to take China-occupied Kashmir back from Beijing. “In Ladakh, China has occupied the Aksai Chin. We shout about it, but do not have the power to take it back”
The leader noted that War is not the solution and the only way to resolve the issue is to be friendly with China.
“India should enhance their diplomatic channels and with that they should resolve this matter. China is Pakistan’s friend, had we maintained our friendship with China, they would not have been friends with Pakistan,” he said.
“Dalai Lama is another issue. They are asking to send him out of the country. India knows how to give one shelter, cannot throw someone out of the country,” he said.
His son who was also the Chief Minister did not take much step to address the issue faced by the war torn valley. They always took a dig at the present NDA Government but also did not maintain cordial relationship with the UPA as well.
Farooq asserted that China’s motive is to make the Karakoram by-pass, which would serve as their silk route and will connect them to the port. The ambitious project which has seen China investing billions will make it enter the Europe since it goes across various nations until Russia which has prompted Vladimir Putin to meet Xi Jingping recently as it would enable the employment generation in both the nation.
