Cong: Why not tell China we are watch­ing HK?

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Nation -

China say­ing that it was watch­ing the J&K sit­u­a­tion, Congress on Thurs­day asked PM Modi to de­liver a strong ri­poste to Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping by bring­ing up the un­ceas­ing civil un­rest in Hong Kong. The party slammed the gov­ern­ment for fail­ing to stop China from speak­ing on In­dia’s in­ter­nal af­fairs. “Xi Jin­ping says he is watch­ing Kash­mir but why do PM Modi or the ex­ter­nal af­fairs min­istry not say that we are watch­ing pro-democ­racy protests muz­zled in Hong Kong, that we are watch­ing hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions in Xin­jiang, that we are watch­ing con­tin­ued op­pres­sion in Ti­bet and that we are watch­ing South China Sea,” Congress spokesman Man­ish Te­wari said.

de­scribed as a “model” one (this was the Kam­raj pe­riod and the first fiveyear-plan), when lo­cals asked him to stop and in­au­gu­rate a newly-built ma­ter­nity cen­tre. Zhou obliged, even drank from a green co­conut.

Sri­ram and his brother Tha­lasayanam are the sons of the man who built the ma­ter­nity cen­tre. They still live in the area and the hos­pi­tal is func­tional as well. In fact, it is the only motherand-child cen­tre in the area, the broth­ers said. “This vil­lage was on the in­ter­na­tional map. When­ever for­eign dig­ni­taries came to Tamil Nadu, they dropped by here,” Sri­ram said.
