New Delhi [India], July 19 (ANI): Senior Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav on Wednesday raked up the China issue in the Rajya Sabha during the ongoing Monsoon Session. Mulayam said China has installed a nuclear bomb in Pakistan and has prepared itself to attack India anytime now. "Today, India has immense threat from China. I have been informed that China has installed nuclear bomb on Pakistani soil. China has prepared fully to attack India," Yadav said. He added that China is conspiring against India, taking Pakistan under its fold. "Protecting Bhutan and Sikkim is our responsibility. China is our enemy, not Pakistan; it can do us no damage," he asserted. Raising the matter in the Lok Sabha against the backdrop of tension between India and China, he asked the government to inform the Parliament what it has done to meet any likely challenge from the neighbouring country. Meanwhile, the members of the Opposition belonging to the Congress, the Trinamool Congress (TMC), Left, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) staged a walkout in the Lok Sabha after the House met at 12 noon after the first adjournment. As the House resumed, in the Zero Hour, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge demanded immediate discussion on farmers' plight and suicides. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, while rejecting the adjournment motion, said the issue would be discussed as it is listed under 193 in the business of the House. Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar also pleaded with the opposition members saying the Government is committed for welfare of farmers. However, unrelenting opposition members staged a walkout. (ANI)
