BEIJING: China is putting pressure on India to participate in an international conference on its One Belt, One Road or Silk Road programme next May after realizing that showcasing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would not be enough to sell the OBOR idea.
This is evident from several comments from Chinese officials and experts about the Indian reluctance to join the OBOR program that involves creating road, rail and port infrastructure connecting China to the world.
A Chinese expert has now accused India of taking a "biased view" of the OBOR program. The expert, Lin Minwang of the Institute of International Studies at Shaghai's Fudan University, even tried to shame India by citing some reports about Russia expressing interest in it.
If India has slightest self respect left it must boycott OBOR. Just recollect how China humiliated India in UNSC on declaring Masood Azahar a terrorist and blocked India from NSG membership
Are you not an Indian? why do you address India as a 3rd person? India's self respect is your self respect, your mothers self respect. Don't try to act smart here and try to distance yourself from the country.
Without India, the largest country among the other partners, OBOR will be a flop. So they are pressuring India to join. But India should resist
india should tell china that it will agree for obor linking india to china through bangladesh, myanmar etc- but cpec is illegal because it passes through indian territories
If you can't fight them, join them.
India, with its corruption ridden polity can never hope to be China's equal.
It is not important what's China's opinion on Kashmir issue, it has always been India - Pakistan dispute, and if it can be resolved, it will be by these two countries. China, your opinion is not welcomed.
Do not touch them at all and they are more dangerous than the most deadly poisonous snakes of the world..!!

My take on this is that India could join provided it gets the economic benefit out of this.
Considering China's conduct on terror related issues and NSG matters, why is this even a topic for discussion. Say NO and shut it down.
NO NEVER China
