BEIJING: India cannot surpass China's GDP despite the "potential" to become a big power, a state-run Chinese daily said on Thursday, underlining that "unrealistic" praise and forecasts for India are just giving an "illusory picture".
The higher projections of India's economic growth rate in comparison to China's slowing down economy has riled the Chinese official media which argues that India is far away in catching up with China's GDP.
"It is inescapably clear that India won't easily outgrow China as predicted by the West. From a macro perspective, China's GDP in 2015 was nearly $10.42 trillion, which is around 5 times as much as India's $2.18 trillion," an article in the Global Times said.
The daily said that it is foreseeable that China's future economic growth rate may slow down slightly, but the possibility of zero and negative growth is "almost nonexistent".
As a result, there is no possibility of India surpassing China," the article said, adding that "authors in the West never tire of choosing India to compare with China. They seem to consider that India could replace China in the near future."
"It must be admitted that India is a potential big power. But unrealistic praise and forecasts for India are just painting an illusory picture for it," the article said.
All except blind supporters of fenku baba knows that everything about fenku baba is "illusory".

Many are gradually realizing the fact that Modi is all illusion.
I am no Modi fan but I do not want Dr Singh's tenure a reality again. I would rather live with this illusion.
Dear Indians, if you want to see India being a developed nation during your lifetime, please vote for Modi.
China should not not forget that all outside industries came into China for all the facilities and cheap labor. If the nations or industries starts to withdraw their investments, and go somewhere else for cheaper things, demand for 'Chinese' will decrease. India may take a longer times, as it is not an autocratic and oppressive system like China, and has more enemies within,( who do not wants India developed, )than China.
now there's a big power power talking about India. seems we're moving forward. I'm not sure who's the reason behind, may be oil low, gold low/ not so important. I still don't understand opposition is just there to oppose ?
Unity of all religions is strength for India. I don't know if political party heads realizing or not
Grapes are sour in China, their economy is contracting but they make up their own statistics to look like it is still growing.
It is impossible to have your imports, exports and energy consumption decline in such a manner and still have economic growth.
Of course no one in the world can do anythung better than the Chinese in Chinese minds!
Legend in their own mind.
In reality only thing Chinese can do better than anyone else is steal others ideas through sabotage.
