New Delhi: A state-run Chinese TV channel has claimed that it would take China’s motorised troops 48 hours and its paratroops 10 hours to reach India’s capital New Delhi in case war breaks out.
Albeit China recently presented an upbeat picture of its ties with India in a policy document on Asia-Pacific security, yet it skirted references to contentious issues like India’s Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) bid and efforts to get Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar banned by the UN.
However, as the comment by the Chinese State TV came to the fore, Indians replied in a humorous style.
Read the quick-witted tweets here:
@spectatorindex Hope China has not used “Made In China” parts to motorise their troops because it wil surely fail them in Himalayas.

@spectatorindex China does not know that India’s capital is protected on all sides by massive tactical traffic jams. @Asif_AAP

Dear China, Delhi is well protected by Somnath Bharti’s dogs, Kejriwal’s tweets and Ashutosh’s English. Think twice before taking any step.

Chinese are so inefficient? Indian troops can reach Beijing in under 6 hrs. Problem in both cases is what happens to them once they reach https://t.co/PxkrUnZCsa
