May 7, 2007
The Arunachal Pradesh government on Monday denied reports of any Chinese incursion into the frontier north-eastern state.
"There is absolutely no truth in the reports of any Chinese intrusion. The allegations were unfounded," Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu said.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh, Khiren Rijiju, had been quoted as saying that China had moved 20 km inside Arunachal Pradesh.
"There has been a Chinese incursion in our country particularly in Arunachal Pradesh. I have written to the government of India and raised the issue in parliament. The government of India is not accepting the incursion openly. But defence personnel do acknowledge that this is happening and the Chinese are occupying our land," Rijiju was quoted as saying by the media on Monday.
