Further upping the ante on China, India has banned the import of power equipment from the neighbouring country. Power minister RK Singh on Friday said that no power equipment import will be allowed from China and Pakistan. The minister added that Beijing may use it as a "Trojan horse" that can be potentially used to trigger a power grid shutdown in the country. "India imported Rs 71,000 crore worth power equipment including Rs 21,000 crore from China. This is something we cannot tolerate that a country will transgress into our territory," the minister said at the state energy ministers conference.
