India has said that repeated incursions by Chinese troops into its territory do not augur well for maintaining cordial bilateral ties and accused China of illegally occupying Aksai Chin.
Addressing an election rally at Leh in Jammu & Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday said that New Delhi wants to maintain good relations with its neighbours but its gesture should be reciprocated.
Singh said relations between the two countries could touch new heights if there is a positive action and resolution of complicated issues like border dispute. He said, China never shared its boundary in Jammu and Kashmir with India at the time of independence of the country and because of the wrong policies of Congress government the country has become India’s neighbour. He said that Tibet acted as a buffer state between the two nations.
The Home Minister was at Leh to rally for BJP candidate Chering Dorzey, who is contesting against sitting Congress MLA and Minister Nawang Rigzin Zora. Elections for this Assembly segment will be held in the first phase on November 25. The Minister said, several development schemes could not be implemented in the region due to Article 370 and urged people to vote for BJP which promises to implement the 73rd Amendment in the state.
