Several pro-China outfits in North East have called for the boycott of Independence Day celebrations on August 15. In a joint statement, seven terrorist outfits said that India's plans to celebrate their 70th Independence Day in a grand way is a sign of nervousness due to the Doklam stand-off with China.
The joint call has been given by anti-talk Ulfa(I) and United People's Liberation Army from Assam, Coordination Committee (CorCom), the conglomerate of four outfits of Manipur, and Garo National Liberation Army of Meghalaya.
This year, India under the premiership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who boasted that he confronts the world "Eye to Eye", is getting ready for the 70th Independence Day celebration with a grand display of its military power and hardware, perhaps attempting to outdo the Chinese PLA's 90th anniversary celebration on 30 July 2017 which was indeed very impressive. Or perhaps, it is also a sign of nervousness or apprehension of the Indian government at the border fracas at Drok La or Drong Lam, the tri-junction of our close international border with China; and hence to hide the same, the statement read.
India's policy towards neighbour China is now wide open as the facts of the Drong Lam (Drok La) impasse is vivisected by experts exposing her weakness and helplessness of the situation for the world to see, the seven terrorist groups also said.The government is working to saffronise the region with its slogan "One Country, One people, One culture," the statement further read.
