China the 'bully' is threat number one: Fernandes
Criticising the central government's policy on China, former Defence Minister George Fernandes [Images] has urged India and other countries to pressurise the communist nation to change its stand on Tibet [Images] by boycotting Chinese goods.

"India has surrendered to China and is not taking any bold stand on the independence of Tibet," Fernandes said, while speaking at a function organised by the Regional Tibet Youth Congress, in Vadodara in Gujarat on Sunday.

The imperialist face of China is totally 'bared' and the world has witnessed 'ghastly' scenes of the killings of people, he said, adding, "Now it is do or die situation for Tibet".

"The genocide of innocent and peaceful people should wake up all the countries supporting the cause of Tibet," he said.
The National Democratic Alliance leader said the Olympic torch should not be allowed to come to India and added that he had asked his friends and others to make 'whatever effort' to prevent the flame's run in this country.
