Rijiju at Yangtse
By A O News Service
TAWANG, Dec 17: Days after Indian soldiers clashed with the Chinese military in Tawang sector in Arunachal Pradesh, Arunachal MP-cum-Union Law & Justice minister Kiren Rijiju reached the clash point on Saturday.
Posting photographs with the Indian armed forces at the Yangtse area at Indo-China border, Rijiju said that Arunachal Pradesh is fully secured after additional troops have been deployed
“Yangtse area in Tawang is fully secured now due to adequate deployment of brave Indian Army jawans,” Rijiju posted on Twitter, along with photographs of himself with the soldiers in front of a mountain.
Rijiju also posted mesmerising photographs of the 108 Holy Water Falls located at the same place just below Yangtse, locally known as Chumi Gyatse. “This is an amazing sight located just below Yangtse. It’s known as Chumi Gyatse, 108 Holy Water Falls which originates from in-between the high mountains, considered the blessings of Guru Padmasambhava,” he tweeted. It is notable that there are 108 waterfalls at that location.
Hours before reaching Yangtse, Rijiju slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his negative comments on Indian armed forces. “Rahul Gandhi is not only insulting Indian Army, but damaging nation’s image. He is not only a problem for the Congress party but has also become a huge embarrassment [to] the country,” he said.
“We are proud of our Armed Forces.” he added.
He also posted a video where locals in Arunachal Pradesh are seen slamming the Congress leader for his misleading remarks that Indian armed personnel are being thrashed by Chinese army. They said that it was Indian soldiers who had beaten the Chinese soldiers, and Rahul Gandhi made a wrong remark by saying that Chinese are beating the Indians.
On Friday during a press conference, Gandhi had alleged that while China is preparing for a war, the Indian Govt is doing nothing and trying to ignore the threat. He had said that ‘China has captured 2000 sqkm of Indian Territory, killed 20 Indian soldiers, and thrashing our soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh.’
