Taiwan’s relation with that of China is controversial in terms of Taiwan’s independence. Moreover, China claims it as its territory. Although, the Government of Taiwan has been declaring formal independence continuously. This comes just after the months of deadly clashes between India and China over a border dispute.

And urged to follow one china policy.
Meanwhile, show displeasing by telling does not violate it.”There is a free media in India that reports on issues that they see fit”.

Democracy works on the basic principle of the freedom of expression as a fundamental right to the citizens of India. The Constitution of India undertaken this, and no government can take it away from the people or the press. But, there is no way a government can supremacy the media outlets and adapt to the press.
