Mulayam Singh speaking in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh said in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that China had “buried” nuclear weapons in Pakistan so as to attack India and asked the government to back Tibet’s independence. At zero hour, he called China India’s “real enemy” rather than Pakistan that “can do us no damage.”

Mr. Mulayam Singh was Defence Minister in the United Front government and is known for his strong anti-China stance.

Meanwhile senior sources in the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday that China had not done any major troop mobilisation close to the border.

In the past 48 hours, a couple of videos circulated in the media showing massive exercises by the People’s Liberation Army and the Chinese media have reported a huge mobilisation of resources amid the standoff in Doklam.

The sources said there was a general state of alert, but no major movement of troops.
