http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...e-India-Mulayam-Singh/articleshow/7549323.cms PTI, Feb 22, 2011, 08.29pm IST NEW DELHI: Alleging that China and Pakistan are having "a strategy to invade India," Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to give an assurance to Parliament that the country is safe from a possible external aggression. "China and Pakistan can invade India. They are having a strategy to invade India. The House must be assured that India is safe, when PM gives reply," Yadav said in the Lok Sabha participating in a discussion on the motion of thanks to the President for her address to Parliament. Referring to developments in Ladakh, Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh where China is allegedly building Army threatening India's sovereignty, he said, "They are occupying one inch of territory every day. We could not regain our lost territory. They are claiming our land." The former defence minister said he was aware that China is ready to attack India. "China is our No 1 enemy. It is time to save our country," he said. "Their armed forces are ready. They may invade at any time. Nepal would also be occupied," Mulayam feared and called for a "Himalayan policy" to check a possible Chinese invasion. The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said the honour and sovereignty of the country is at stake. Criticising the country's foreign policy, he said, it is in the hands of the US. "Who are our friends? We don't have any friends like USSR," said the leader, whose party has 22 MPs who support the government from outside. Referring to the incidents of attack on Indian students in Australia and harassment of Indian students at the hand of authorities in the US and the UK, he said the Government must take steps to protect their interest in foreign countries. He said both Nepal and Sri Lanka used to enjoy good relations with India in the past but that is not so now. The Samajwadi Party chief also alleged that there was "so much of corruption" in the name of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) and it was bringing bad name for Gandhiji. Gandhiji's name should be removed from the project to protect his honour, he said.
