Indore: Raising several questions on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s visit to China, Congress Member of Parliament from Dewas Sajjan Singh Verma said the visit is not in the welfare of the nation.

Verma said, “China is involved in destroying the Indian economy and is posing danger to the country while the Chief Minister wants to bring Chinese industries in the state which will pose a threat to our markets.”

 “The CM should have instead made efforts to provide roads and basic facilities in the state,” he said, questioning Chauhan whether he had taken the permission of the BJP’s national leaders for the trip and informed the Union Home Minister on Chinese investment in the state.

Giving various examples of China’s dominance, Verma said, “China has been infiltrating into Indian borders repeatedly and even blew away many bunkers of the Indian Army a few days back in Ladakh. It is also continuously opposing India’s permanent seat in the UN Security Council which raises doubt on its intentions. In such a situation, how is it justified to invite Chinese investors to the state?”

Putting the CM in the dock, he said, “The trade in the state is already suffering due to lack of electricity and roads and Chinese industries will add to the apathy of the state’s traders.”

Terming the Investor’s meet as a total failure, he said, “Crores of rupees were spent on the meet but it gave no returns. If this visit of the CM turns successful, the state will be posed with a situation similar to Singur.”
