Nagpur: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said that Indian defence forces, Govt, citizens remained unfazed and responded sharply to China’s boisterous efforts to invade our territories.
“The role of China in the context of COVID-19 pandemic can be said to be doubtful, but it was clear to the whole world, the manner in which China attempted to encroach on India’s borders, because of its economic strategic force. Indian defence forces, Govt, citizens remained unfazed and responded sharply to China’s efforts to invade our territories,” said Bhagwat.
“Rising above China economically & strategically. Securing cooperative ties with our neighbours and at international relations is the only way to neutralise the expansionist aspirations of China and our present policies seem to be charting those very horizons,” he said.
Bhagwat said that India’s benevolence is being mistaken for weakness and attempts to disintegrate or weaken us by sheer brute force is unacceptable.
“We intend to be friendly with all. This is our nature. But mistaking our benevolence for weakness and attempts to disintegrate or weaken us by sheer brute force is unacceptable. Our reckless detractors should know this by now,” Bhagwat added.
“The message sent by our leaders with a sense of self-respect and the indomitable ethical-patience of our citizens must compel China to reform its attitude but if push comes to shove we will not fall short of alertness, firmness and readiness,” RSS Chief said.
