New Delhi: Amid reports of increasing infiltrations by Pakistan and Chinese forces into Indian territories, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that the growing proximity between the two neighbouring states poses a big threat to India.
The RSS chief said, “There are intrusions from across the borders, infiltration is taking place and the boundaries have not been demarcated which is bad for the nation.”
“We are direct victims of infiltration from across the borders,” he said while referring to the emerging threat from China.
“China is threatening us. It is tampering with our borders”, Bhagwat said in the backdrop of reports that Chinese troops had intruded into Indian territory in their choppers and dismantled Indian bunkers in Churmur area of Ladakh in August without being challenged at any stage.
His reference to China also came in the backdrop of claims made by Army Chief General VK Singh that nearly 4,000 Chinese soldiers are currently present in the Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK).
"There are certain construction working teams, a large number is available. Around 3,000 to 4,000 of these people are present including certain people for security purposes. There are certain engineers troops. Now (like) our own engineers are combat engineers. So, in some way they are part of the PLA," he told reporters.
China recently warned India against oil exploration in the South China Sea.
