A K Antony
New Delhi, Sept 6: The Indian government seems to have given up on its borders and has chosen to live in oblivion. After stating the obvious and the evident in the Lok Sabha, Defence Minister A K Antony has proved that the government is incapable of protecting its people and its territories.

"The government has nothing to hide, nothing to conceal. This is a matter of national interest, national importance. Everything will be made clear. As and when it is required we will discuss it," said Union Minister Kamal Nath.

The fact that the Chinese Army has built motorable roads and is not allowing the Indian troupes to patrol the territory is evident of yet another failure of the government after the 34 Pakistani ceasefire violations by the Pakistani army within a month.

Even after this, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif at the G20 summit. Manmohanji, we would appreciate if you met your chinese counterpart too. After all, they owe us an explanation for the 640 square kilometer of Indian territory that is under them, illegally.

"We can definitely resolve the issue. But there has to be a political will and a preparedness by the government. But there is a complete lack of will. I fail to understand why the government is adopting such a weak response towards China," BJP leader Prakash Javadekar said.

Call it oblivion or a game of politics, what India needs today is an iron hand and not a 'weak defence'.
