These days there are tensions between India and China but latent. And both the counties now harbouring good dreams to become the next ‘superpower’. There are plenty of unresolved issues, both small and big, between the two neighbours who went to war in 1962. Given the context, a controversial tweet popping up on our Twitter timelines is bound to catch attention.
A tweet by the International Spectator (@spectatorindex), a state run Chinese TV channel, claiming to Chinese military could reach India’s capital New Delhi in merely 48 hours if a war broke out between the two countries.
Indian Trolling army caught the tweet soon and started replying with hilarious tweets.
CHINA: State TV says it would take country's motorised troops 48 hours and its paratroops 10 hours to reach India's capital if war broke out

@spectatorindex Hope China has not used "Made In China" parts to motorise their troops because it wil surely fail them in Himalayas. 😀
