Moodbidri, Sep 10, 2017: Speaking on ’The Changing Dynamics of Indo-China Relationship’ at a programme jointly organised by Rostrum - Speakers’ Club of Alva’s Education Foundation and Sanchalan Moodbidri, on Sept 9, Saturday. BJP joint organising secretary B L Santosh said that unnecessary focus about Pakistan and inattentiveness of dangerous China are the real cause for advancement of China towards India.
Santosh said, “It is rather unfortunate that, we couldn’t realise the threat posed by our neighbouring country China until it advanced towards our border. Taking the advantage of situation, China is challenging India in borders, strategic alliance and internal security fronts. It is also playing its card in national security, water, culture, economics sectors."
He called upon students to boycott Chinese products and said, it is better to “Know China’’ to make “no China’’.
Quoting the words of Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu “to subdue the enemy without fighting is the pinnacle of strategy,” Santosh said India succeeded in Dhoklam plateau standoff applying same diplomatic strategy. India has its upper hand in different areas like democratic governance, younger population, skill intensive service sector and entrepreneurial culture, he observed.
Alva’s Education Foundation trustee Vivek Alva, Alva’s College principal Dr Kurian, Naturopathy College P principal Dr Vanitha Shetty, Nursing College Principal Dr Vinaychandra Shetty and others were present.
