    Wake up call for India as Xi Jinping assumes full command


    President Xi is now the commander-in-chief of the joint battle command centre of the Central Military Commission.

    On Wednesday, the Chinese news media unveiled a new title for President Xi Jinping: commander-in-chief of the joint battle command centre of the Central Military Commission. This is the first time a Chinese leader has been conferred with this title, and Jinping appeared in a camouflage pattern military uniform for the occasion. This was a departure from his usual practice of appearing in an olive green Mao suit while discharging military duties.

    Jinping, the general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, is also the chairman of the Central Military Commission since 2012 which controls and runs the Chinese armed forces. Given his consolidation of power across party and military, the unveiling of the new title can best be seen as a signal that he is now in absolute and total control of the country.

    Beyond sending out a signal, this new title indicates the seriousness with which the Chinese leadership is integrating and modernizing the structure of its armed forces. As the head of the joint battle command centre, Jinping will sit at the centre of this plan for a new, leaner, integrated Chinese armed forces. It underlines Jinping’s commitment to that vision and reaffirms his position at the centre of this fundamental change in the People’s Liberation Army.

    This stands out in sharp contrast to India’s long-pending plans to integrate its armed forces. The Group of Ministers formed after the Kargil War recommended the creation of a single point military chief, called the Chief of Defence Staff but that recommendation was not accepted by the Vajpayee government. The UPA government formed the Naresh Chandra Committee which recommended a permanent chairman of the chiefs of the staff committee to coordinate and integrate the three services. Despite many promises by the defence minister, Manohar Parrikar, there has been little progress on the matter.

    The new announcement by China ought to spur India towards implementing integration plans and modernizing the armed forces. It could start by laying out a time-based roadmap for creating integrated theatre commands, and a single point military advisor to the government.

    With the Chinese enjoying a headstart, a little later may be too late.

    At least GoI is responding. China is a rogue country. Iirc 11 Jumping is also in Panama list. PLA is as corrupt as porki army. They will try to divert attention by creating disturbances along Indian border.

    The good thing in this battle is that the rotten presstitute media will be on our side, for a change; Not because they have suddenly turned patriotic, mind you, but because most of these media houses are funded by US corporations to serve as a front for American foreign policy. India-China friction is in the interest of US foreign policy and so we see all the presstitutes cheering unanimously whenever India takes any anti-China stance. And they will get to score some much needed street creds by bolstering their nationalist credentials after the massive hit they have taken recently.
