Tripura Governor blasts Pakistan and Bangladesh for trouble in NE
Agartala, Feb 24 (UNI) Tripura Governor Dinesh Nandan Sahaya today lambasted Pakistan and Bangladesh for instigating subversive activities in India.
Addressing the valedictory function of the joint civil-military training workshop, organised by the National Security Council Secretariat here, Mr Sahaya said despite the recent confidence- building measures between India and Pakistan in cross-border terrorism, a low intensity conflict launched from across border, was looming large on the security radar of India.
'' Subversion of Indian population on religious lines has been a major thrust of the Pak ISI over the years and it aims at instigating militancy, causing religious cleavages and creating communal disturbances, '' Mr Sahaya said.
He said Bangladesh, on the other hand, with a vociferous Islamic fundamental orientation and the proclivities of ISI, indulging in clandenstine infiltration and illegal migration of its economically deprieved population and providing sanctuary to many insurgent groups, active in the North Eastern states.
Referring to China, the Governor said though relations between the two countries, were easing, China' military and economic support to Pakistan, Myanmar and recently to Nepal were disconserting to India's national security and border management.
''India cannot ignore a situation that every major Indian city is within the reach of Chinese missiles'' he said.
Mr Sahaya said Manyanmar also remained an area of concern due to the activities of the North Eastern insurgent groups, which have set up camps across the Indian border, and tussle between the forces of democracy and military government, which had drawn the support of China.
