Arunachal Pradesh CM dismisses opposition claims of Chinese intrusion; says Rahul Gandhi lacks knowledge about the northeast
Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu dismissed opposition claims that Chinese forces were entering Indian territory and said Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi had raised the issue, but that he himself lacked in-depth knowledge of the northeast. “Rahul Gandhi doesn’t have much knowledge about the northeast let alone Arunachal. He raises such questions about the northeast that he doesn’t have deep knowledge about,” said CM Khandu.
His remarks came after the Congress leader said 1,000 square kilometers of Indian territory had been given to China. “China has refused to accept India’s request to restore the status quo of April 2020. The Prime Minister has given 1000 km2 of territory to China without a fight. Can the GOI explain how this territory will be recovered ?” tweeted Rahul Gandhi.
CM Khandu further clarified that all the activities carried out were on Chinese territory. “I have seen on social media that Chinese people have entered (Indian side) and are building again. According to the report I received, they have not done so. All activities are in their own territory. opposition claims are false. I say with confidence that there is no Chinese intrusion in Arunachal,” he added.
