Do Not Create Another Doklam In Arunachal BJP MP Tapir Gao

Do Not Create Another Doklam In Arunachal  BJP MP Tapir Gao

On Tuesday, Arunachal Pradesh BJP MP Tapir Gao reported that over 50 km of land in the state had been occupied by China.

When Gao raised the issue in the Lok Sabha during Zero Hour, he urged the government not to allow the state to become a second Doklam.

Gao further said that China raises concerns when the president, prime minister, union defense or home minister visits the government. 

When Defense Minister Rajnath Singh visited Tawang on November 14 last, Gao referred to China raising objections through an official press conference.

In a 73-day stand-off in Doklam near Sikkim, India and China troops were locked up last year after the Chinese Army stopped building a road in the disputed area.

Indian troops intervened to stop the road as the narrow corridor linking the country to its north-eastern states posed a security risk.

The standoff ended on August 28, 2017, following a mutual agreement that prevented China from building the road and removed its troops from India.

Gao had claimed earlier in September that the Chinese Army had invaded the remote Anjaw district of Arunachal Pradesh and constructed a bridge over a lake.

Kiren Rijiji had later claimed that there was no tension in Arunachal Pradesh along the Indo-China border.

India and China share a border of almost 4,000 km, which is not clearly demarcated, leading to both sides ' incursions.
