What congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said about the challenge facing China is worth noting. The government would do well to take a look at this – although the chance that this will actually happen in the current environment is minimal. Rahul Gandhi has roughly said two things. The first is that China and Pakistan have now formed a front together. That is, whenever there is a war, India will have to fight against these two countries together. Second, he has said that China is growing economically and technologically stronger, while India is experiencing internal strife, mutual hatred and an atmosphere of confusion. The ruling party will regard the second point as its criticism, so it is obvious that it will not pay attention to the first point either. But the fact is that the talk of war on two and a half fronts (China, Pakistan two full and terrorism half) has grown old. Under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project in Pakistan, China has created such a huge interest that its own interest has become involved in the defense of Pakistan. On the other hand, in the event of a war with China, Pakistan will see an opportunity to secure its strategic interests at the same time.
Therefore, if a war ever comes, the Indian army will have to handle the border from Arunachal to Ladakh and Rajasthan to Jammu and Kashmir together. If India does not prepare to keep this whole scenario in mind, then as Rahul Gandhi has expressed concern, India may suffer a great loss. Looking at the state of the country’s economic and technological progress, things look even more worrying. When such challenges arise, there is only one way for the entire country to make a united decision to face the challenge and prepare for it by making every sacrifice. Of course, the government and the ruling party will have to lead this major resolution campaign. But if they are determined to label every dissenting voice in the country as anti-national, it is a fair question how will that be possible?
