Accusing the media of creating China phobia among people, union Minister Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday said the neighbouring nation is not going to “invade” and Indian borders are “quite strong.”“Media is creating China phobia among people. China has got its own compulsion. We have our own compulsions. Why do you get worried about it,” Abdullah told reporters outside Parliament House.He was reacting to a query on reports that China was constructing bunkers along the Jammu Kashmir border.“Chinese are not going to invade us. Prime Minister has already declared that,” Abdullah, who is also a former chief minister of Jammu Kashmir, said.
Asked whether time has come to strengthen India’s border along China, Abdullah said, “Our borders are quite strong. You have never been to border. So you don’t know. I go to the borders... I know how strong our borders are. That is the difference.”Over 178,000 Chinese nationals visited India on business visa during the past three years with close to 60,000 of them making the trip during the first 11 months of this year, stated Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur in a written reply in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
