India will permit the import of energy tools from China and Pakistan, Union Minister RK Singh mentioned right this moment amid the standoff with China on the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh, including that Beijing might use it as a “Trojan horse” that may be probably used to set off an influence grid shutdown within the nation.
“We manufacture everything here. India imported Rs 71,000 crore worth power equipment including Rs 21,000 crore from China,” Mr Singh mentioned within the state power ministers convention chaired by him this morning in his opening remarks.
He mentioned: “This (huge import of power equipment) is something we cannot tolerate that a country will transgress into our territory….we will not take anything from China and Pakistan.”
“We will not give permission for import from Prior Reference countries. We are affected. There could be malware or trojen horse in those (imports from China) which they can activate remotely (to cripple our power systems),” the Union Minister mentioned.
India has within the latest days taken steps to impose stringent high quality management measures and better tariffs on items from China as it appears to be like to spice up home manufacturing to chop reliance on imports.
