Companies sharing border with India (read China), will no longer participate in the tender bids for contracts of any government project in UP. The state government has asked all departments to stop it.
Who can slap a super power?
China may have notions of being a Super Power but it is being slapped by India and now it’s slapped by most populous State of India. Is this how a super power is treated? China and Pakistan stand in same pariha club.
About Uttar Pradesh.
With population of 220 million and some of the largest projects like metro trains in 5 cities, Ganga Expressway, Ayodhya City Development, Airports at Zevar and Ayodhya, Defence Industrial Estate in Bundelkhand, it is the most happening place in terms of projects and investment running into more than 100 billions.
The state government of Uttar Pradesh has issued an order in this regard.

A letter has been sent to all departments in this regard. This includes PPP projects, state run projects, public sector undertakings and corporations and local bodies projects and government procurement.
Actually, the countries with geographical borders with India are China, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Nepal etc. Although no country has been named in the order, but considering the current situation and tension on the border, it is believed that this time the Chinese companies will be affected more. 58 Chinese app has already been banned by the Union government.
The central government has issued an order to the UP government to implement the system. Now the state government will create a competent authority. Under this authority companies of the respective countries will have to register here. First, these companies will have to seek political consent from the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of External Affairs and security related permission from the Ministry of Home Affairs. After this the registration process will start in U.P..
Authority will p the details of how many companies’ applications came, how many were rejected and how many applications were approved. The state government will send the entire report to the cabinet secretary of the central government every third month. Such steps have been taken by the central government to protect national security and the country.
China has built up its presence along the LAC in Ladakh, with India deploying heavily to match its northern neighbour.
A bloody skirmish between the two sides resulted in the death of 20 Indian soldiers and an unknown number of Chinese casualties on June 15, but while Beijing has repeatedly spoken of peace and tranquility, it continues to maintain its presence in the region.
Indian Armed Forces are ready:
Transgressions along the LAC occur due to differing perceptions about its alignment. Defence services are tasked to monitor and carry out surveillance and prevent such transgressions turning into intrusions. Whole of government approach is adopted to peacefully resolve any such activity and prevent intrusions. Defence services always remain prepared for military actions should all efforts to restore status quo along the LAC do not succeed,” General Rawat was quoted in newspaper.
China must move back:
Luv to China from India:
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:

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.
