The Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) national conference will be held in Thiruvananthapuram from December 13 to 15.

 SJM all-India Convener Kashmiri Lal told a news conference here on Tuesday that the conference would discuss the serious threat being faced by the country from China on various fronts.

 He said the SJM is organising a nation-wide awareness campaign against Chinese threat to India’s security and economy by holding street corner meetings, debate-discussions, protest rallies, door-to-door campaigns by distribution of handbills and books on the issue.

 Seven representatives under the leadership of SJM National Co-convener Bhagwati Prakash Sharma will participate in the ninth WTO Ministerial Conference to be held in Bali from December 3 to 6, he said.

 “The way China intruded 19 kilometres into our territory in Daulat Beg Oldi area of Ladakh with some 40 intruders, has made a mockery of our national defence preparedness. Despite repeated requests, this strategically important area was not handed over to the army from the hands of ITBP, is beyond anybody’s comprehension,’’ he said.

He said China had already occupied 38,000 sq km of land after the 1962 war and Pakistan has provided 5183 sq km of our area to China. “General public is not aware of the fact that China is a threat not only on the Himalayan border, but also from the borders of countries in our vicinity,’’ he said.
