New Delhi: Describing China as the "biggest enemy" of India, Samajwadi Party chief and former Defence Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav took the lead in targeting the government in Parliament for "doing nothing" and alleged that it was acting in a "cowardly" manner while dealing with the intrusion crisis. He further went on to say that the threat from “China is greater than the same from Pakistan."

"We have been warning that China has started occupying our territory. But government denied to listen,” Yadav said during Zero Hour.

He further said that the Indian Army is ready to remove all intruders but there is no action from the government’s side. "This government is acting cowardly, it is incompetent and good for nothing," he said, while objecting to the scheduled visit of External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid to China on May 9.

The SP chief added, “After the 1962 war, it was decided that till China moved away from "every inch of our land, we will not hold any talk with them. But now our Minister is going to China to hold discussions amidst incursion crisis."

Demanding that the House should be briefed about the situation, Yadav said, “The government had not taken any step to check the intrusion…with a heavy heart I have to say that even the Chair has not directed the government to act."

"When the Army Chief himself says that the troops are ready to respond, why is the government not issuing instructions to it? They (China) insulted us in 1962. They are insulting us now in the world fora," Yadav added.
