Watch the latest episode of Policy Square!! Primus Partners had the privilege of interviewing Mr. Nitin A. Gokhale, founder of BharatShakti and Strat News Global. Mr. Gokhale has spent good amount of time in the North East and has been a ground reporter covering Kargill and Sri Lanka. In this episode we dive into the intense relations between India and China, Russo-Ukraine war and the fall of insurgent groups in the North-East. Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war has already led to increase in inflation and made the economy very unpredictable. China being quite aggressive past few years – be it Dokolam, Chumar or Ladakh creates an additional problem for India. India shares 2nd longest border with China after Bangladesh. With the increasing tension on Indo-China Border India needs to analyse the Russo-Ukraine war carefully and prepare themselves in accordance with the new warfare techniques maintaining diplomatic relations with China.
