    BAHUGUNA: "India...has a rich heritage, which compels us to say today and announce, the most, if I may say so, heinous crime, which the Chinese ruling circles have unleashed on the frontiers and on the soil of Vietnam. China's ruling circles must look to their own business. I'm afraid they are assuming too much of a role to them."
