Letter to BS: Digital strikes can't be a substitute for territorial one

Union  Minister  Ravi Shankar Prasad  is  thumping  his  chest  by referring to the ban on Chinese apps  as a digital  strike. He should know that digital  strikes  cannot  be  a substitute for territorial  strikes  needed  to  recapture  the  territory taken away  by China. Again, when  we  need  FDI  for  the  revival  of the economy  and  China  is one of the big  contributors, we  need  to  act cautiously.  The government may  derive  solace  or  present to the gullible  masses  that  it has  indeed taken revenge  but  the fact  of  matter  is  that  China  is  too big an economy  to  be  affected  by  such  actions. They  have  enough  money  to  throw  around.  It is their  capacity  to invest  in  other countries that has  made  all our  neighbouring countries pro-China.
