Congress asks Modi govt to strongly counter China's claim on Arunachal Pradesh

| @indiablooms | 27 Mar 2024, 02:04 am

New Delhi: Arunachal Pradesh is an integral and indivisible part of India, the Congress asserted on Tuesday and urged the Modi government to strongly counter China's “pathetic claims”.

Despite India's dismissal of China's absurd claims, China on Monday continued that Arunachal Pradesh has always belonged to them. This came as a response to India's External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar's firm rejection of China's repeated assertions on Arunachal Pradesh as “ludicrous”.

In a post on X, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said Arunachal Pradesh is an inalienable, indistinguishable and inseparable part of India.

"The Indian National Congress strongly condemns and opposes any idea of an iota of Chinese claims on Arunachal Pradesh. This is the fourth time in a month, that the Chinese, from its highest offices, have made completely ludicrous and farcical claims," he said.

Kharge noted that China has a record of making absurd claims by renaming locations and altering maps of areas that rightfully belong to other nations.

"Moving beyond partisan politics, we are together in protecting India's sovereignty and territorial integrity. However, it may also be underlined that Chinese belligerence is the result of PM (Narendra) Modi not acting on its 'Laal Aankh' and giving CLEAN CHIT to China on Galwan on June 19th, 2020, where 20 Indian bravehearts sacrificed their lives for the nation," Kharge alleged.

Kharge criticized the Modi government's approach towards China, stating that whether it's the construction of villages near the border with Arunachal Pradesh or the abduction of Indians residing in border areas, the government's lenient stance towards China, which he termed as the "Please China Policy," has jeopardised the national security of Arunachal Pradesh.

"Apart from Ladakh, 'Modi Ki Chinese Guarantee' is being played up in Arunachal Pradesh," Kharge alleged.

"We still hope that the Modi government should come out with the strongest rebuttal to the Chinese on their pathetic claims. We want peace and tranquillity at our borders," the Congress chief said.
