    BEIJING: By a strange coincidence, Chinese engineers have achieved the much awaited feat of blasting open the last of the rocky obstacles to create a long tunnel in the Tibetan county of Motuo across the Arunachal Pradesh border with India on a day when premier Wen Jiabao landed in New Delhi. The feat is bound to influence the border discussions during Wen's visit.

    The Chinese government said the tunnel is meant to link the last of the isolated counties with rest of the country to ensure its development. It will also enable easy transportation of men and equipment across long distances to the border in Arunachal, which China claims to be its own.

    Indian observers said the new 3.3 kilometer tunnel, which connects a 117-km long highway to Bomi country, provide additional support to Chinese armed forces. The move is bound to aggravate India's worries as Motuo is the point where the Brahmaputra enters India.

    The official CCTV television carried reports of celebration with workers dancing and tossing around in the tunnel but did not mention that it was next door to India.

    It is also a rare case of a government going to heavy expenditure to connection a population of just 11,000 who live in Motuo county in eastern Tibet. China recently built the fifth civilian airport in Tibet and announced plans for established the world's highest airport at 14,553 feet in the region by 2011. Plans are also afoot for laying six new railway lines in the region.

    Its going to be a repeat of 1962 . on one hand chinese are trying to build a relationship and on the other hand are building tunnels so close to the border. I dont see any purpose other than to use them to launch surprise attacks. We wont even know what hit us.

    Very True Shash, when i joined this forum i told that if China has to strike India, it will be between 2010 to 2020 bcoz after that we will be out of the reach of the chinese. And it seems all the developments after that re-affirms that stand of mine that a 1962 is in the making. On the other side we are being engaged in billions worth trade deal so that we don't smell their covert designs. And you know our leadership, once given a symphatetic statement by any chinese leader will give them dreams to wonder and forget the past.

    India Need to be wary of Chinese designs....!!!

    I hope our government-who-begged-terrorists-to-earn-Western-kudos is able to see this too. Although I have a feeling that they've already tied down the hands of Indian Army by slowing down Howitzer acquisition and light tank induction. Sometimes I wonder whether we really have a government that is elected by us (especially when Congress is in power) or they are simply puppets of either USA and China sitting pretty.

    There is always a solution to everything. Tit for Tat. But our politicians are too busy with scams rocking our country. They dont have time for external security.

    The more tunnels they build, the greater will be their need to guard them.

    Tibetans will be delighted!
