No country can warn India: Rajnath in tough message to China



Agencies, Manesar

A day after China reacted sharply to government’s plans to construct a border road in Arunachal Pradesh, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has sent a strong message asserting that no one can warn India.

“Today, no country can give warning to India. India has emerged as a strong country in the world. As far as Indo-China border issue is concerned, I think China should sit with India and resolve this issue,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the Raising Day event of elite counter-terror force NSG in Manesar on Thursday. Singh was asked about China’s strong reaction to plans to construct a road network along McMahon line from Mago-Thingbu in Tawang to Vijaynagar in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh to match China’s infrastructure development. Government is taking a number of steps for improving infrastructure along the Sino-Indian border, especially in Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. Forces of the two countries were locked in a stare-down at Chumur in Ladakh for a fortnight beginning 11th September. For days, soldiers of the Chinese PLA and Indian Army personnel were engaged in an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation in the area. Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the matter twice with the Chinese president. Tension erupted when some Chinese workers crossed over with equipment to build a road five kilometre deep inside the Indian territory. A marathon flag meeting between the two armies facilitated an end to the stand-off. The Home Minister on Tuesday reviewed the prevailing situation along the 3,488 km-long border with China and steps being taken to stop incursions in future.
