On First April or Day 8 of Lockdown, a scheme called Production Linked Incentive Scheme was launched for Large Scale Electronics Manufacturing which extends an incentive of 4% to 6% on incremental sales (over base year) of goods under target segments that are manufactured in India to eligible companies, for a period of five years subsequent to the base year (FY2019-20). The scheme was open for filing applications till 31.07.2020. Incentives are applicable under the scheme from 01.08.2020.
This will spell a loss of INR 11,50,000 crore approximately to China.
Global who of who of Mobile Industry Arrive:
A total of 22 companies have filed their application under the PLI Scheme.
Secretary Pompeo chose the Nixon Presidential Library to condemn China. It was a strange way to apologize for the Nixon’s efforts to open up relations with China. However overtly Pompeo praised Nixon’s efforts to bring China into the community of nations but he warned that time has come to put a stop to this madness of expectation without progress.
Pompeo confessed about the dangers Communist ideology poses to the world and sought to reestablish America’s democratic principles, saying the country will never bow before Beijing. He said:
“My goal today is to put it all together for the American people and detail what the China threat means for our economy, for our liberty, and indeed for the future of free democracies around the world.
Next year marks half a century since Dr. Kissinger’s secret mission to China, and the 50th anniversary of President Nixon’s trip isn’t too far away in 2022.
The world was much different then. We imagined engagement with China would produce a future with bright promise of comity and cooperation.
But today – today we’re all still wearing masks and watching the pandemic’s body count rise because the CCP failed in its promises to the world. We’re reading every morning new headlines of repression in Hong Kong and in Xinjiang.
We’re seeing staggering statistics of Chinese trade abuses that cost American jobs and strike enormous blows to the economies all across America, including here in southern California. And we’re watching a Chinese military that grows stronger and stronger, and indeed more menacing.
Not surprisingly, Secretary Pompeo too had many questions e.g.:
What do the American people have to show now 50 years on from engagement with China? Did the theories of our leaders that proposed a Chinese evolution towards freedom and democracy prove to be true? Is this China’s definition of a win-win situation? And indeed, centrally, from the Secretary of State’s perspective, is America safer? Do we have a greater likelihood of peace for ourselves and peace for the generations which will follow us?
The curious aspect is the dog. But dog did not bark, said Watson. That is the point.
Media is silent:
Chinese army was supposed to move back and it did except at Penang Lake area. Both sides have deployed armies in Lake area. American satellites show that China has deployed long range artillery guns. It has also build 26 new camps. It has also set up 22 new support bases.
China has put up a field hospital beyond finger 8 area. It may be noted that weather is getting worse and Chinese armies are not acclamitised for the lo oxygen mountain weather. China has also built two helipads in the area.
Iran is not a naughty boy of the world as it seeks to present itself. It’s idea of the world is rooted about thousand year old ideology. Not many people know that when Babur failed in it’s attack over India he went to Iran for help, leaving behind his newly born son Akbar in Kabul. The King of Iran offered him help with the condition of converting him from Sunni to Shia. He agreed. Babur also agreed to hand over Kabul to Shah of Iran. At that time Turkey and Iran had fire power which no one else had in the world. The next encounter of Iran with India was Nadirshah when he ransacked Delhi for a week before leaving with the loot including golden peacock. Therefore personal people to people contacts notwithstanding, Iran and Turkey had global ambitions and they still live in those ambitions. Recently Turkey was beaten in it’s ambitious game in Libya when warplanes targeted al-Watiya airbase in western Libya. Later it was revealed that these were Rafale jets, which limited the identity of the attacking power to France and Egypt, the two countries within the range of the base that possess this type of aircraft. It responded by converting Hagia Sofia Museum into Mosque and visiting it too.
The answer to this question depends upon what you understand with the word ‘WAR’ ? But I am sure there are two definite aspects of a war.
First is an aggressor who may and may not cause the damage but is never apologetic thus is an aggressor. Second is Death. There is no war without death. Death of Civilians is more true in reality than perception. Civilian always dies unprepared. Soldiers bravely march into death as if death doesn’t exist.
Forgive my hubris, I have waited 117 days to tell this. We are in the midst of 21st Century War. Exactly 117 days ago, I felt that we are at war but nobody said it. So I started writing daily developments in a diary. Now I can say with confidence that we are at war. Each country has it’s own story but I will tell the story from India’s perspective, mostly. However a brief reference to Europe and USA is necessary.
I have narrated in a ten part series on India-China war scenario explaining how the war scene had to be leaked here. While China has moved back it’s troops from three places but it is still adamant at fourth place. As said earlier, it is 21st Century war which no one wants to admit. Why?
The China will not admit that it started any war because it does not want any military retaliation which it has no capacity to face. Search around. I have done and China has old re-engineered war machines which is no match even for India what to speak of USA, the Police Commissioner of the World. For example China builds fighter plane J-17 and Pakistan manufactures it but the Pakistan insist on Russian Engines not the Chinese ones. Other plane J-20 has not flown in any air show and it’s stealth capacity is in serious doubt what to speak of its mach speed.
USA and Europe will not admit that it is a war for the same reason they were saying that “It is just a flue”. They are still in shock that they can be hit that too by their lap dog “China”. Yes. China is their lap dog for decades and their capitalists were using the sweat shops offered by China to exploit it’s population and American/European companies were reaping benefits without any litigation for better conditions in their home turf. Read about this here where I have referred to a book by a USA official in this regard. So Why he did it?
