Birds Of A Feather: Tharoor No Less Than Rahul Gandhi On China
Even as the country is gripped with Rahul Gandhi’s kid-glove treatment given to China in the wake of a faceoff between Indian Army and PLA soldiers at Galwan valley in Ladakh, a new expose has come to light involving Lutyens darling Shashi Tharoor.
Tharoor too is not far behind the Vadra-Gandhi family for having soft corner towards the Chinese. This was known when he expressed his gratitude to a Chinese company for making a donation under CSR at the request of CTF.
“Most grateful to @HikvisionHQ for making the donation under CSR at the request of the Chandran Tharoor Foundation; to @collectortvpm & @TVC138 for their exemplary cooperation; & to @BlueDart_ for delivering the equipment to Thiruvananthapuram on time. Great job @rohithsuresh_89!,” Tharoor had tweeted on May 16.
The Chandran Tharoor Foundation (CTF) is set up by Tharoor in memory of his late father. It aims to help the weaker sections of society through modest grants in the areas of relief for persons in distress, educational and health care assistance and miscellaneous services to improve the quality of life of vulnerable groups.
The foundation is based in Thiruvananthapuram and its activities are mainly centred in south Kerala.
However, this gratitude comes at a time when Indo-China border tensions are its peak. As many as 20 Indian Army men were martyred in a clash with the PLA, who also faced the ignominy of losing 43 of their soldiers in the Galwan valley clash in Ladakh.
Receiving financial help from an enemy nation at this point of time certainly will be abhorred by the people and he is already facing the music on various social media platforms.
How could Tharoor, celebrated as the most erudite politicians in India, could miss on researching the profile of Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Company, is sort of a mystery.
Nevertheless, after knowing the profile of this Chinese company, any patriot would be shaken by the roots. The company is owned and controlled by Chinese military. Certainly, a serious issue whereby lies India’s security concerns.
The US administration under President Donald Trump has placed the company on a trade blacklist last year, accusing it for violating human rights in China’s far-western region Xinjiang, where as many as a million Uighur Muslims are placed in mass detention camps.
The US government had blacklisted the firm to ensure that its technologies that are fostered in an environment of individual liberty and free enterprise, are not used to repress defenseless minority population in Xinjiang.
Under these circumstances, if Tharoor gets financial help from such companies, one cannot be surprised that he would only speak in favour of the Indian government and Indian Army.
Consider this: Tharoor has written an opinion piece in South China Morning Post, which was published yesterday. If one reads it, one will get an impression of showing China in much better position than India in economic, military and geopolitical, terms.
