As soon as Galwan tussle kicked off, China felt as if it is its moment of reckoning. But, two years down the line, the Communist nation is back to square one. It has realised that without India, it cannot even move a whisker. That is why it is trying to course correct. Trust me, China is begging to have ‘peace’ with India.
China wants to have India on board
Chinese top brass has urged India to solve the conflict. Wei Fenghe, Chinese Defence Minister General himself invoked the neighbourhood card to bring India into China’s fold. Speaking at Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, Wei stated, “China and India are neighbours and maintaining a good relationship meets the interests of both countries. And that is what we are working on,…”
However, in spite of its communication about the readiness to engage to jump up pro-India bandwagon, China is not ready to accept its Galwan blunder. Dr Tanvi Madan, director of The India Project at the Brookings Institution, a US think tank asked Wei about the reasons behind China’s advancement in the region. Wei chose to divert the question and instead informed her about the current status. Wei said, “We have had 15 rounds of talks at commander level with the Indians and we are working together for peace in this area.”
China’s ‘change of heart’ may be a deceptive approach, but the very fact that it wants India on diplomatic table tells us how much damage it has been inflicted upon after the Galwan valley clash. In the aftermath of Galwan clash, PM Modi realised that China is not going to be an all-weather friend. So, the Modi Cabinet chalked out a detailed plan to weed out Chinese influence in India as well as on Global stage.
At the time of Galwan valley, Indians were heavily dependent on cheap Chinese products in almost every arena. Modi government started the initiative by banning Chinese apps. A nationwide wave of the economic boycott of China gripped the Bharatvarsh. People started to ditch Chinese products in favour of made-in-India products. As a result, the demand for Chinese imports nosedived. In fact, during Deepawali last year, Chinese suffered a staggering loss of ₹ 50,000 crores due to Indians not buying its products.
At that time, Chinese economic potential was already on decline. Companies had started to move their factories outside China and decline in import Dollars from India made a further dent in China’s ratings. To pull these companies, Indian government started to invest heavily in PLI Scheme, Aatmanirbhar Bharat, Make-in-India initiative among others. India is now the hotbed of companies looking to relocate their factories established in China.
But, just economic victory is not enough. It was important to clip the strategic wings of the paper dragon. India led an all-out diplomatic offence against the Xi Jinping and his administration. Through strengthening ASEAN and ACT EAST POLICY, India took the countries in the vicinity of South China Sea on its side. Through a recently signed Defence pact with Vietnam India’s ships will be in the proximity of 400 km of China. Similarly, India’s decision to supply BrahMos to Philippines further jittered China.
During Ukraine-Russia crisis, India again stamped its authority as a global superpower. Despite USA and Russia being staunch enemies, India is the only country which has been able to take both countries on board. Its ever-reliant bond with Russia is getting stronger day by day, while by leading the QUAD, India has taken USA on its side. Indo-Pacific Economic framework (IPEF) is a further jolt to China’s dream of replacing the USA on the global stage and India on the regional one. After analyzing India’s initiatives, US authorities are now openly stating that China’s infrastructure projects in the region coerces other countries to indulge in conflict with China. Uncle Sam has also termed Chinese infrastructure projects near LAC as alarming.
To counter Chinese aggression, India is also boosting infrastructure in the adjoining area. Our recent decision to engage US troops in high-altitude military exercise sent another alarm to Chinese administration.
PM Modi sent China into strategic oblivion. The country is not able to find any ally. In fact, even the island nations are refusing to accept its so-called hegemony. It has no option other than curtsying India.
