New Delhi: China is again using the media it runs as a proxy to issue threats- its latest ones are calls to Beijing to answer india’s “blows with blows” and to interfere in India’s turbulent northern state that borders China.
That China’s upset with the visit of Dalai Lama to the border state of Arunachal Pradesh was made patently clear over the last week. That it’s livid was made even clearer in two editorials today in state-run media, China Daily and Global Times.
“If New Delhi chooses to play dirty, however, Beijing should not hesitate to answer blows with blows,” said a China Daily editorial, regarding the Dalai Lama’s visit.
However, the Global Times edit threatened Beijing’s interference in Kashmir, without naming the border state. It appears what has irked Beijing the most are Union minister Kiren Rijiju’s comments and the fact that he accompanied the Dalai Lama to Arunachal.
“China should not object to the Dalai Lama’s visit and interfere in India’s internal affairs,” Rijiju said yesterday. China Daily today conveyed Beijing’s enormous displeasure over that comment.
