China lashes out at BJP MPs for attending Taiwan's swearing-in ceremony


Bengali Hunt Desk: Two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs attended the swearing-in ceremony of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen via video conferencing. And China got angry with India over this issue. China even advised India not to take possession of its own internal cases. Taiwan's president was sworn in on Wednesday. Meenakshi Lekhi, a BJP MP from Delhi, and Rahul Kasban, a BJP MP from Churu in Rajasthan, took part in the swearing-in ceremony via video conference.

92 celebrities from 41 countries took part in the swearing-in ceremony of Tsai Ying-wen via video conference. Apart from two lawmakers from India, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also attended the event.

China objected in writing after BJP lawmakers attended the swearing-in ceremony of Taiwan's president. The Chinese ambassador in New Delhi has objected in writing to India to stay away from China's internal affairs. In the complaint, the Chinese ambassador said it was wrong to greet the Taiwanese president.

China and India have been at loggerheads for months. Tensions between the two countries have risen sharply since China tried to cross the border into India. On the one hand, China is increasing its military strength along the Line of Actual Control. Similarly, India is deploying troops along the Line of Control to put pressure on China. Needless to say, India's move is aimed at putting pressure on China amid tensions between the two countries.
