India seems to be finally saying enough is enough! The Doklam stand-off seems now to be precarious. As continued warnings of war are coming from China.
After being quite on all such warnings and news of skirmishes in other parts, Jaitley finally decides to tell dragon that it is no more India of 1962.
Defence Minister Arun Jaitely said that the Indian armed forces are strong enough to meet any challenge to the country’s security as he underlined that lessons have been learnt from the 1962 war.
“Initially (after Independence), we faced a crisis. Our neighbour had an eye on Kashmir. Even today, we cannot forget that a part of the country has got separated. It is a wish of every Indian today as to how to retrieve that part,” Jaitley said.
The statements were given by Jaitley when he was about to start a special debate in the Rajya Sabha to mark the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi in 1942.
Although Congress stuck to its petty politics as it took jibe at BJP during the debate. Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is leader of the opposition, said “Last night was eventful like the night of 8 August 1942. I don’t want to go into details”. He was referring to the recently concluded Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat. Azad emphasized that Quit India Movement never saw any riot as Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru had sought unity among Hindus and Muslims.
