Samajwadi Party leader and former Defence Minister Mulayam Singh, speaking in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, said, “India is today facing a big threat from China. I have been cautioning the Central government for many years. None paid attention. China has joined hands with Pakistan. It has made a full preparation to attack India. China is India’s biggest opponent. What has the government done?” “In Kashmir, the Chinese Army has allied with the Pakistani Army,” he pointed out.

Mr. Yadav said Chinese soldiers were seen in Pakistani military facilities in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir where China was building roads, too. This must be opposed at the diplomatic level. “We have come to know that China has buried ‘atom bombs’ in Pakistan in order to... prepare to attack India,” and Indian intelligence agencies “would know better,” he said.

Without naming Jawaharlal Nehru, he said the Congress stalwart made a “big mistake” on the Tibet issue. Tibetan leaders like the Dalai Lama had always supported India, and the time had come for India to support Tibetan independence. “Tibet has been a traditional buffer between the two big nations, and India should give maximum support to the Dalai Lama.”
