The problem becomes more complicated with India leaving the scene for neo-anti-Indian forces compelling Dhaka to look for a bigger friend, though Beijing has no interest to plan out a programme for Rohingyas going back to their homes,’’ said a Dhaka-based politician.
Now a section of B’desh intellectuals even apprehend that it’s Chinese love for Myanmar  Military which actually “responsible for  planned ouster of Rohingyas, which includes all human rights violations and engineering a crisis.’’
The `expansionist China’ with India retreating for unexplained reasons would complete encircling it, by expanding its area of influence, this includes Beijing’s reasserting its position in Doklam.

Incidentally, Chinese interest got a boost with pro-Beijing political forces, Left alliance, emerging winner in Nepal and KP Oli set to become Prime Minister.
And because of sheer debt Sri Lanka Government gave out Hambantota Port to China on 99 year lease which “paved out an advantage for Beijing to monitor India militarily from Nepal and extreme south Sri Lanka,’’ added a Bangladesh politician.

Though the liberals and secular elements believe that Awami League and alliance Government must not give up other diplomatic avenues to pressurize Myanmar Government to take back Rohingyas, which they fear Hasina Government will not.
But with a proper diplomatic offensive Awami League should try to bring in more global forces to pressurize a racially arrogant Myanmar, which will keep off Beijing,’’ says a senior Dhaka-based politician.
Instead of taking financial aid, and later becoming a Chinese check post in the area for we are a strategically important, both India and free global forces must realize an option,’’ said a worried A Siddique a Dhaka-based academician said.
