Indo-China border dispute.
Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh is in Phnom Penh from November 18-20, 2012 to attend the 10th ASEAN-India Summit and the 7th East Asia Summit.Meanwhile,Dr Singh met Chinese Premier, Wen Jiabao, there and discussed the issue of increasing India’s market access to China for IT, services and pharmaceuticals.
Indian Govt remains ignorant while Chinese continue penetrating deeper in Arunachal Pradesh
Indian and Chinese Govt Representatives talk about trade and bilateral relations,quite often but disputed border issues between both the countries never got discussed and this has led Indian govt to keep silent on Chinese intrusions taking place in the regions of Himachal Pradesh and several kilometers inside Arunachal Pradesh. China not only claims whole of Arunachal Pradesh but also parts of Himachal and in Arunachal they have developed roads as well while the Indian Central Govt seems least bothered on the issue and state govts seem helpless.
Question is are we scared of China and can’t do anything about the intrusions and if it is , then why do our Indian Maps on our school books misleading us while Google maps show Pakistan occupied Kashmir and China occupied Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh as a disputed land and not Indian land?
Just go to google images and type ‘Indian Map’ and you would be shocked to see the variations of Indian borders or on google images type ‘india map with disputed territories‘ and check the difference !
