A professor of the University of Internationa Business and Economics said in a commentary in the state-run Global Times that it’s time when China should teach India a “second lesson” as India continues to be on an intransigent path, he also said that the public is running short of patience with India’s Doklam infringement and China should negotiate in a strict language to such an unruly neighbour.

Referring to India’s defeat in 1962 he  said that, “If India has a short memory than there should be a second lesson for them.”

The border row was triggered when India stopped when Indian army stopped the construction by Chinese troops last month in the Doklam Sector in Bhutan. China claimed that it was constructing the road in its own Territory while India made a clear stand that the area belongs to Bhutan, not China and the road would endanger New Delhi’s strategic interests. India’s claim was later backed by Bhutan itself.

He further said that India has an as weak logic of reasoning on this matter as its army on the ground, “It claims China’s road construction in Doklam poses a strategic threat on the 27km wide corridor, called chicken-neck, in Siliguri which connects the North-East states of India to the rest of the country. He said that India is using this as an “excuse warranting an invasion”.

He said that China is not Sikkim or Bhutan where India’s preponderant tactics would work. He then linked the border dispute to Kashmir issue and said, with this kind of logic, a third country can certainly enter into Kashmir upon Pakistan’s invitation.
