China's growing influence on Sri Lanka, which is India's back gate, should be a matter a concern for the country, research professor in the Centre for Policy Research Bharat Karnad said today. Addressing the students of Amity University, Karnad said India needs to become militarily pro-active and be assertive with not only Pakistan but with China as well. "India, which should be cautious of China, remains too much preoccupied with other neighbouring countries including Pakistan, Nepal and Bhutan," the research professor in National Security Studies said. Karnad was delivering a lecture on 'Geopolitics and Indian Strategy' at the Amity Law School in Noida.
