Monsoon Session Day 2: Congress MPs  walkout from Lok Sabha demanding discussion on India-China border issue

Congress MPs stage walkout from Lok Sabha demanding discussion on India-China border issue

Congress MP Tharoor said, "For instance: since the Defence Minister excoriated China for transgressing the LAC, could the Govt explain why the Prime Minister had issued an extraordinary statement claiming that China had not entered our territory? Presumably the Government has changed the PM’s stand?"

"Another question: since the Defence Minister says that both countries have now agreed in talks to respect theLAC, but separately says the two countries have differing perceptions of where LAC lies,isn‘t that a recipe for another clash? Shouldn’t we just insist on status quo ante?" he added.

We have told China that attempts to unilaterally alter status quo were in violation of bilateral agreements: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in Lok Sabha

Speaking about the India China border clash, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said, "India and China border issue remains unresolved. Till now, there has been no mutually acceptable solution. China disagrees on border."

He added, "China doesn't recognise the traditional & customary alignment of the boundary. We consider that this alignment is based on well established geographical principals."

However, both India and China agree that to maintain peace and tranquillity in the India-China border areas, it is essential for the further development of bilateral relations, he said.

We have told China through diplomatic channels that the attempts to unilaterally alter the status quo were in violation of the bilateral agreements: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in Lok Sabha.

Violent conduct of Chinese troops is a violation of all past agreements. Our troops have done counter deployments in the area to safeguard our borders, the Defence Minister added.

The minister went on to say that "China has mobilised a huge number of Army battalions & armaments along LAC & inner areas. There're many friction points in eastern Ladakh, Gogra, Kongka La, Pangong Lake's north & south banks. Indian Army has made counter deployments in these areas."

Singh assured that "we are ready to deal with any situation."

The minister added, "I request this house to pass a resolution that we stand shoulder to shoulder with our armed forces who are guarding our borders to safeguard India's sovereignty and integrity."

"In meeting with Chinese Defence Minister, I clearly stated that while our troops had always taken a responsible approach towards border management, but at same time there should be no doubt about our determination to protect India’s sovereignty&territorial integrity," he said.
