CHI­NESE WHIS­PERS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

In­dia has qui­etly shot down a pro­posal from China to host a me­dia sum­mit in Goa to co­in­cide with the Oc­to­ber 15 BRICS sum­mit. Bei­jing wanted its of­fi­cial Xin­hua news agency to hold the me­dia sum­mit and photo ex­hi­bi­tion in the sun­shine state. Delhi, it seems, felt it would be more than a lit­tle in­con­gru­ous for the Chi­nese government to host an event when In­dia is the cur­rent BRICS chair, that too on In­dian soil.
