Bangalore: Expressing serious concern over
the growing "multi-dimensional threat from China", the
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Saturday asked the government to
seriously look into border violations by the Chinese People`s
Liberation Army on the Line of Actual Control.
"Casual attitude and perpetual denial of our government
in describing gross border violations by the Chinese People`s
Liberation Army as a case of `lack of common perception on the
LAC`

"... attempts to underplay the severe strategic
dissonance between the two countries and failure to expose the
expansionist and imperialist manoeuvres of China can prove
fatal to our national interests," the RSS said in a resolution
passed today at its three-day annual meet being held in
Puttur, around 350 kms from here.

The Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) of the RSS
expressed serious concern over the growing multi-dimensional
threat from China and the lacklustre response of the
Government of India to its "aggressive and intimidation
tactics".
"The ABPS cautions that the growing civilian and defence
ties between China and Pakistan are a matter of grave concern
to our national security. Presence of the 10,000-strong
Chinese Army in Skardu (PoK) in the guise of construction
works and repairs to Karakoram highway is a serious issue as
it allows China to encircle Kashmir," the organisation
claimed.

The RSS further charged that the "malafide" intentions of
China are conspicuous in a number of recent developments.

"It has falsely charged India of occupying 90,000 sq km
of its territory (including Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim).
Chinese troops entered Gombir area in Demchok region last year
and threatened the civilian workers to stop construction
work," the RSS said.

The ABPS also saw "potential danger from Chinese
machinations in India`s northeast region.

A recent expose in a leading weekly about the extent of
the involvement of China in arming, encouraging and funding
insurgent groups like the NSCN should awaken us to this
danger. Besides NSCN insurgents other insurgent groups in the
northeast like the NDFB, ULFA etc also get patronage from
China," the RSS claimed.

The organisation asked people to boycott use of all
Chinese made goods saying that its penetration was affecting
the Indian manufacturing industry.
