Read on GD Burning topic: Should India be more aggressive with China?
The ultimate objective of China as a nation is to become a superpower in the South Asian region and dominate international affairs. Against this plan, it only sees India as a major threat and so the Chinese province is looking to minimise this force in every possible manner. On one hand, China is sending troops continuously into India, but on the other, it is also increasing economic cooperation and ties.
Yes, it can be said that greater aggression can solve the Sino-Indian border issue to a great extent. India’s strength lies in utilisation of social and other forms of media, through which global awareness about intrusions can be increased. With the help of social media and ethical hacking into Chinese defence, more inroads can be made into this mysterious power.
Several border intrusions took place in 2013, beginning with occupation of the Daulat Baig Oldie (300 kms from Ladakh) in April. While Chinese troops were stationed in Indian Territory for 21 days, India also built a camp 400 metres away.
Though there were some heated exchanges between commanders on both sides, Chinese troops returned in May. In addition, after occupying Tibet, China has the best possible route to enter India.
There is clearly a need to strengthen the Indo-Chinese foreign policy. Though a Border Cooperation Agreement has been signed between the two, India Defence Minister A.K. Anthony says that this does not guarantee a lack of flare-ups along LAC.
China has already set itself up at different ports across the subcontinent- Chittagong in Bangladesh, Hampantota in Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Gwadar in Pakistan.
On the other hand, an aggressive stance will not help India much as it lacks the heavy military structure to take on its rival. The only way to gain some insight is to continue with peaceful and targeted diplomatic talks.
Without being aggressive, we can attempt to look for the vulnerability of this country, as China is largely a mysterious power for us. For this, the intelligentsia brass of India has to be strengthened.
Conclusion: India needs to mix caution with aggression to handle China. More information needs to be known about the country’s vulnerabilities and greater use of electronic media needs to be made.
