‘You cannot win with vacant unsupported claims’: Congress inquiries PM on China relabeling areas in Arunachal



BRAND-NEW DELHI: The Congress Friday doubted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on records of China renaming 15 areas in Arunachal Pradesh in their very own language and also calling the north-eastern state as South Tibet.

“A few days back, we were remembering India’s glorious victory in the 1971 war. Wise and strong decisions are necessary for ensuring the security and victory of the nation. You cannot win with empty rhetoric,” previous Congress President Rahul Gandhi claimed on Twitter, describing a report on the Chinese step.

Chief Congress representative Randeep Singh Surjewala defined the Modi government as “weak” and also implicated Prime Minister Modi of staying “silent” on Chinese “threats” to India’s territorial stability.

“As the year ends, China threatens our territorial integrity and sovereignty. China has already transgressed & occupied Depsang Plains & Gogra Hot Springs in Eastern Ladakh. China has set up a village in Arunanchal. Mr.56″ rejects to state a word. Weak Govt, Mum PM,” Surjewala claimed on Twitter, the 56-inch-chest jibe being a referral to Modi’s assertion throughout the 2014 legislative political election project that he would certainly embrace a solid plan on nationwide safety and security.

Addressing an interview below, Congress representative Gourav Vallabh questioned when the Prime Minister would certainly “look China in the eye” and also take solid actions to counter its steps.

“Will our response be limited to banning Chinese apps, while India-China trade crosses the 100-billion-dollar mark,” Vallabh asked.

He claimed the government need to reply to Chinese relocates highly and also ensured the assistance of Congress in every such action.

According to the Chinese state-run Global Times, the nation’s Ministry of Civil Affairs introduced on Wednesday that it had actually standardised in Chinese personalities, Tibetan and also Roman alphabet the names of 15 areas in Zangnan, the Chinese name for Arunachal Pradesh.

India had actually highly declined China’s activity and also insisted that Arunachal Pradesh has “always been” and also “will always be” an essential component of India which appointing “invented” names does not modify this reality.
