Outrageous statement by ‘The Global Times’, the mouthpiece of China’s communist Government
New Delhi – The Chinese Government’s mouthpiece ‘The Global Times’ has reported that India’s Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has been infected with Covid-19. The newspaper said that Singh’s Covid-19 infection would mentally affect the Indian soldiers stationed on the Indo-China border.
Indian Defence Minister #RajnathSingh tested positive for #COVID19 with mild symptoms, he tweeted on Monday, days before #China and #India are reportedly to hold the 14th round of military talks scheduled for Wednesday. https://t.co/kLDYBOp7K5

The Global Times quoted Qian Feng, Director of a college at Tsinghua University, as saying, ‘The contagion of such a high-ranking Indian official shows that the Covid pandemic is now affecting not only Indian citizens but also their troops. The number of troops at the border will have to be reduced to curb the spread of the virus. This will put pressure on soldiers serving on the border as they will be in fewer numbers’. (Seemingly China is manipulating India to withdraw its troops from the border. Indians will not fall prey to such Chinese gimmicks ! – Editor)
