hina expands its activities to Sri Lanka s north: India worried
NEW DELHI: Red flags are going up in India over Chinas fresh attempts to expand its footprint in northern Sri Lanka in the garb of infrastructure projects, with Beig even making efforts to woo the ethnic Tamil community there
China, which has already made deep strategic inroads into Sri Lanka through its predatory det policies, is now assiduously working towards establishing its presence on the island nation as close to the Indian coast as possible, say sources in the Indian security establishment
Proliferation of Chinese economic activity and proposed infrastructure development projects in the Northern province of Sri Lanka, which could be later exploited for strategic reasons, is rtainly a matter of concern for India.sid a source
Earlier, the Chinese projects were largely restricted to southern Sri Lanka. “But the Gotabaya Rajapaksa go nment is now facilitating several Chinese ventures in northern Sri Lanka as well often ignoring sentiments of Tamil resi nts there. We are closely mon oring the developments, “he added
Nobody is friend at global level，all serving own interests.Look US example.Fact is all bow to superior powers.Just diplomacy without enough influence does not simply work.India should understand it sooner than later
India is allied to most untrustworthy cowardly world power the USA.American foreign policy priorities change every 4 years with change in Presi nt while China is consistent and steadfast with allies as they plan longterm.
Even if china has no friends，still nations will agree to it to serve own interests
I think Sri Lankan leaders have not yet learned the lessons from Chinese cunning mindset，crooked dept diplomacy and this might be because of local po iticians who are lured with bribes by Chinese bats as usual and indirectly letting Chinese to grab their resources for 100s of years in the nameof lease..Atleast srilankan leaders should open their eyes now，us their brain to not get into further depth traps from cunning Chinese bats..
Once A Feku
Sri Lankans are thankful for your insights
India owes Japan lot of money.Bullet trains are not free my friend.We must pay that money back，It is not interest free loan.interest is built in.
Colombo port city will be next Shanghai.The pace of development is staggering.Apart from being worried，loser Modi can’t do anything
Yes，just like we saw the Sri Lankans Howling the last time they realised the price they had paid by leasing out the Hambantotal！！！You dont worry about Modi.He has nothing to lose.It is losers like you and Sri Lanka have anlot to lose.So，start worrying about yourself
Well，when we have so many chinese proes in India，the co unists，Nehru family and others in pay of the chinese，what canwe tell the sri lankans？We have traitors within the country，who are prepared to sell their motherland
Stupidity is govt just sitting like lame duck，enemies consider us weak now
Chinese got success in encircling India
May sound offensive，but it won’t be bad if we call Beiq and shoot a’watsup bruh’Because the red dragon is here to stay.And we better keep our friends in tab
Don’t live in fools paradise
While our go nment continued blaming previous go nments，drinking chai，bear hugs，swing rides，etc China went on to encroach land and sea.In retaliation we banned 20 applications.
Time to wake up.Fuel and edible oil costs are all time high，but this is also due to previous go nments
Money buys friends and also buys po iticians.US played havoc for India by sudden et from Af.
Time to get cozy with Russia a well tested friend
India’s eyes have always focused on China.Don’t India feel very sad？What the Indian go nmen should do is to treat its citizens well and solve all kinds of iniustices in Indian society.No mattel what China does.India will face it with a broken glass heart.
If Congress thieves were in power in India India would have been sold out to China and Pakistan.That was Congress thief’s plan
China has spread its wings too far.It is just a matter of Time before it overtakes the US.
Who else is here to read comments and all the lectures from the people who apparently seems experts.Types of people-1.All praise for modi.2.All abuses for modi.3.Issue is with Sri Lanka as they are allowing China to built port etc 4.Issue is with China，they are doing this.5.
Replying or abusing others in comments.Whats your category from above？Please give your expert oion world needs you.Stupid immature people.India has to go a long way
Time to create a buffer between india and so called Chinese occupied srilanka in northern srilanka that is tamil eelam or it will be too late if Chinese army comes to North srilanka
In the not-very far future the southern part of India that includes the unpatriotic Tamils and ker will be swallowed by the dragon.These people deserve the impending slvery.
We should have supported LTTE.It was mistake by India.We should have learnt from Turkey in Cypress.Foolish India talks about principals at its own distruction
The Chinese are”Buying an island strip”connecting Sri Lanka and India..our so called R Sethu！Which means they are literally sitting at our southern door steps.SL will sell any thing including their country’s stretegic land parcel s for money！
Mind blowing！.already in Chennai we are worried about sea water engulfing Tamilnadu in next 50 years and now threat of Chinese invasion！
China is all around us.China is in Bangladesh，Siri Lanka，Nepal，Pakistan，Iran，Afghanistan.I hope Modi ji goes to Afghanistan for talk with Taliban fighters soon we have invested huge sums
Already srilanka is facing a foreign exchange and severe food crisis….Time to learn…..
India should simultaneously engage with surrounding countries ASAP.
Why China is waiting and wasting time，Just swell this cherry.Pakistan and Nepal are in que in waiting for there turn.
With sea levels rising，lets hope nature takes care of ust
China is working so well on its expansionist agenda..targeting weak countries
This is unsafe for us！We need to make sure that we mon or closely…Chennai is not far from Srilanka！
Kee tabs on the activities of Chinese ship in Sri Lanka is the natural thing to do because its near to India.Ships commercial or warships from China when they reach Sri Lanka have already travelled a distance so they need a place to refuel and restock.Saving that China is using Sri Lanka to create problems for India is a joke because India could reach Sri Lanka in a day whereas China is a few days sailing from China..
China wants to control the whole world
Thats why China targeting small and economically weak countries first Jai Hind
India only maintains a close watch，do nothing more than that
I can sense WW3 coming at our doorstep
