India and China are being compared on a regular basis in both national and international media nowadays. Its bound to create some animosity between the two countries, Than our Chief of Army Staff yesterday came up with an statement " China and Pakistan are two of our Biggest Irritants " , he even added that " India should be prepared for war on two front with both China and Pakistan " . I was least amused by such an undiplomatic comment . Is there something in it which people don't know ?
The only message I have for him is, WTH. Everyone knows it, you sitting at such an post of honor and responsibilities should not utter a word which creates doubt in the mind of our not so friendly neighbor. If India wants to be prepared to take on any country , talk to the concerned people who can sanction you funds for doing so. Giving open ended statement like this will only deteriorate our relationship with countries like China .
I don't know if there is a post of public relation officer in the ministries or is there a communication department who is handling all such statements from people at the highest positions. Likes of Kalmadi , Lalit Bhanout and VK Singh only makes India a laughing stock in front of other countries.
