India wants us to give them trade corridor, access to our ports whilst they murder our people daily and they even started entering our land to abduct our children. I think our leaders and opposition should unite to fight against this aggression

    Why do we have a foreign policy at the cost of our poor countrymen? In the past four months, BSF has killed about forty Bangladeshi citizens in the border belts. They have created terror in the north-east through willful infiltration of Khasias. Now they have abducted children from no man's land. Why are we so soft and cool as if nothing has happened ? Mind that, we are dealing with human beings, and not commodities. Our Government must not be an onlooker to such hostile actions on the part of our immediate neighbour. Please summon the Indian HC, and convey our strongest protest on this score.
