ITANAGAR, Jan 29: Reacting on the reports of Chinese intrusion and construction of villages inside Indian territory of Upper Supansiri district, Chief Minister Pema Khandu today retired that the Chinese infrastructure lies along the McMohan line, in a location that has been under China’s control since 1959”.
‘The news agency who reported the incident has misled the people; stated CM. Yes there was been encroachment in Arunachal land but that was way back in 1959 that is totally illegal, so blaming PM Narendra Modi led government now has no logic, said Khandu while giving an interview to a local news channel.
Playing blame game won’t work, but instead, we have to develop the infrastructure and facilities for villagers, soldiers in our border areas, said CM while informing that under the leadership of the present Prime Minister in last six years central government has been pumping funds for the development of border areas and also increased the deployment of soldiers to protect our borders and lands.
Earlier, on Thursday the apex students body of the state ‘ All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) also organized sit-in protest against the Chinese government for repeated claims over Arunachal and illegal intrusion.
