Itanagar: Expressing serious concern over the reported Chinese intrusion in Dibang valley district of Arunachal Pradesh, Lok Sabha MP Ninong Ering has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene into the matter soon.
In a letter to the PM dated October 15, Ering writes, “At many instances in recent times, Chinese troops have tried to enter into Arunachan Pradesh and build roads. Sir, you must intervene in such incidents and ask China to respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of India for a peaceful co-existence as envisaged in historical Panchsheel agreement.”
Around 11 Chinese PLA men dressed in Army fatigues were reportedly spotted in Upper Dibang by local villagers who had gone out hunting to the area.
The locals had reportedly clicked photographs of the intrusion and alerted the Indian Army and the local administration. It is believed that the intrusion took place about seven days ago.
“The issue of China providing stapled visa to people from our Arunachal Pradesh is not new and must be brought to their attention tactfully. The government of India must assert territorial integrity of India and convey the feelings of Arunachal Pradesh people in a firm manner,” Ering, who represents Arunachal East constituency in Lok Sabha, wrote to the PM.
