    • The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today described China's opposition to Dalai Lama's tour of Arunachal Pradesh as "proxy aggression against India" and asked the Centre to put pressure on Beijing for Tibet's independence.

      "China's opposition to Dalai Lama's visit to Arunachal Pradesh is yet another instance of its proxy aggression against India. Already, it has been trying to destabilise us by providing arms and ammunition to Maoists", VHP international president Ashok Singhal said in a statement here.

      "The then Defence Minister George Fernandes was right in calling China our enemy number one nearly a decade ago", he said.
    • "The Government of India must take up the issue of Tibetan autonomy with the Communist government in China and must not hesitate from taking up arms against Chinese aggression if the situation so demands", he said.

      "Besides, steps must be taken to curb the entry of cheap Chinese goods which is harming the Indian economy. We appeal to the people of the country to refrain from using items manufactured in that country", he added.
