AP In this July 22, 2011 file photo, children play cricket near Pangong Lake, near the India-China border in Ladakh, India. New Delhi has asked Beijing to revert to status quo after Chinese troops camped 10 km inside the Indian territory.

The government would take all measures to protect the territorial integrity of the country and there would be no compromise on maintaining national security, Defence Minister A.K. Antony asserted here on Wednesday.

He was talking to reporters after releasing the Congress manifesto for the Assembly elections in Karnataka.

The government was engaged in negotiations in New Delhi and a solution to the Chinese incursion across the Line of Actual Control would be found.

The Minister first refused to speak on the issue, saying he had come to release the manifesto and wanted to focus on it. He advised reporters not to ask more questions.

The only acceptable solution is China moving its troops behind the LAC, and anything else means is unacceptable. When will we have a bold enough foreign policy to speak up with the Chinese counterparts and take actionable measures rather than begging the Chinese to move back?
And why is this not front page news everywhere? Are we so lost in our infighting that we fail to look at the enemy at the gates? Shame on us, that we fail to protect our national interests.
