The Chinese people and Indian people have a hoary past but we cannot be blind to what is happening in the present. We as a nation must closely watch every move of our neighbors and their plans towards future. The Communist Party of India [Marxist] Chief Prakash Karat had let a cat out of his party’s bag when he admitted that Indo-United States cooperation in nuclear energy field would be against the interests of India. His subconscious had activated his tongue to slip a statement of confession. In India when there is a strong Chinese lobby we have to be extra careful about Chinese games in the geo-political chess. China is not a state connected with Indian Ocean, yet it had been tirelessly working out a strategy to have land route access to Indian Ocean. This is facilitated by the Myanmar military rule. Apart from land routes it had been eyeing on ports to have access towards Indian Ocean.
Watch China in Myanmar
Just facing our Andaman Nicobar islands, the military rulers have handed on platter the Coco islands to China to build a port there. International Institute of Strategic Studies said that China had installed Radars made my Russia and employed electronic gadgets to spy Indian army headquarters situated in Port Blair. India’s missile launching station is in Chandipur of Orissa, and from Coco Island China can always keep a vigil eye on India’s missile programme. Coco Island is just 40 kilometers away from Andaman Nicobar, our territory. China had constructed highways from Chinese capital of Hunan up to Shewli in the border of Myanmar. China is holding talks with the military rulers of Myanmar to extend the highway till Chinking, so that from there through Iravathy River Chinese can reach Rangoon harbor. Apart from these moves with Chinese cooperation on build operate transfer basis Myanmar had consented to Chinese to control 6 ports facing India’s east coast. China has agreed to build naval yards and to train Myanmar navy in warfare.
Watch China in Bangladesh
The Chinese Bangladesh military pact for mutual cooperation must have sent alarms in India. Chittagong harbor in Bangladesh had been thrown open to Chinese warships and this is another move in the Chinese chess to check mate India.
Watch China in Srilanka
Srilanka had agreed to hand over Hampanthotta in South Srilanka facing the vast Indian Ocean to China to build a harbour. Thereby Chinese dream to have a foot in a Port wherefrom they can control the sea-lanes of Indian Ocean stands realized. The danger it poses to India will not be told to Indian public because the CPM here will keep its mouth shut. Least said about the saffron parties who think after all in Ravana’s land China has acquired a foothold and we need not break our heads over it.
Watch China In Pakisthan
Close to our borders in Pakisthani territory Chinese have adopted a tiny fishing village and is pumping 250 million dollar to build a port there.
Watch China in Maldives
China had taken a Moro island 40 kilometers away from the capital of Maldives to build a Port.
Alert India: Appeal to CPM
All these are not mere business. It has hidden agenda. It is Chinese checkmate for India. In future China wants to control the sea-lanes of Indian Ocean. The prospects of Oil exploration in Indian Ocean too had prompted China to take these advance steps so that it can stake claim as a state having access to Indian Ocean. Years have gone into this preparation and India’s intelligence had failed to alert India. Indian political parties always sing tunes for support of neighborly good relationship, but that cannot be at the altar of surrendering our geo-political interests.
