On Sunday, the Congress raised concern on issues of alleged Chinese intrusion in Arunachal Pradesh and enquired the Union government’s supervision of border tensions. The party further queried Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on the issue and urged him to address the matter. Congress also demanded to inform the nation about the steps executed in this regard.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi voiced, “We condemn the prime minister’s silence. It is culpable. It is a negative eloquence which we can do without. It is inexcusable,” as quoted by the media. He also shared satellite images to explain that China has built another village six-to-seven Kilometres inside Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh with more than 60 structures. He asserted that the Chinese president had visited a few kilometres north of the mentioned place a few days before.

The Congress further blamed the BJP for giving lessons on national security to the country while deviating from addressing the serious issue that affected India’s integrity and sovereignty. “We don’t understand this definition is national security, where you berate, browbeat, intimidate the whole country on national security issues and keep silent on these kinds of things,” he continued.

Singhvi, slamming the Modi led government at the centre, said that it is a sad case of deliberate distortion, digression and diversion on an issue affecting India’s integrity and sovereignty. Earlier, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala enquired about the happening on the Line of Actual Control in the eastern sector of Arunachal Pradesh.

The Ministry of external affairs recently clarified that India has neither accepted the illegal occupation of Indian territory by China nor China’s unjustified claims. Arindam Bagchi, ministry spokesperson noted, “China has undertaken construction activities in the past several years along the border areas including in the areas that it has illegally occupied over the decades. India has neither accepted such illegal occupation of our territory nor has it accepted the unjustified Chinese claims.”

Bagchi further affirmed that the government is committed to the objectives of developing infrastructure along with border areas for the improvement of livelihood, including Arunachal Pradesh. He added that the government keeps constant supervision on developments having bearing on the country’s security and undertakes all necessary measures to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity.
