Ering urges Centre to sue China for ‘biological warfare’

ITANAGAR, Mar 31: Former union minister and Pasighat West MLA, Ninong Ering, has urged the government of India to sue China in the International Court of Justice for engaging in “biological warfare” and ask for compensation to the tune of 22 billion US dollars.
“Reliable media reports suggest that China has unleashed a bio-warfare programme of Wuhan coronavirus and put world peace and security at the greatest threat,” Ering claimed in a letter to External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar on Monday.
He said India must “unite with other nations and demand an international investigation on the Wuhan coronavirus, so that our future generations remain safe from any such incidents.”
The worldwide lockdown in view of the coronavirus outbreak has crumbled the global economies, including India, Ering said.
Stating that Arunachal, which borders China, is under constant threat and fear of “Chinese evil deeds,” the MLA said: “The issue of China providing stapled visas to people from our state is not new and China even raised objection to the visits by PM, home minister and defence minister to Arunachal Pradesh.”
He also claimed that the Siang river had turned black in 2018 due to “ill-intentioned projects” like dams and tunnels and diversion of waters of the Brahmaputra river by the Chinese authorities.
