By A O News Service

ITANAGAR, May 30: Arunachal Pradesh state BJP vice president Tarh Tarak, who has been touring the border areas (Sharhad Yatra) of the state including last villages and border out posts since December 2022 to assess the border situations by interacting with border villagers to assure them ‘hum hey na’ and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police and Army personnel guarding the border.

This hilly state with tough geography and challenging weather conditions shares 1,129-km of total 3,448-km Sino-India border while China often claim the state as its territory as ‘South Tibet’ to make it a very sensitive state and Tarak became the first in India to do so for which he was honoured by Sudarshan News CEO Suresh Chavank and Union MoS for Food Processing Industries Sadvi Niranjan Jyoti during Sudarshan News conclave at New Delhi on late Monday evening coinciding with nine-year completion of Modi Govt, he told this daily over telephone.

“Such sensitive news of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) making incursion into Indian Territory in Arunachal does rounds often that had prompted me to conceive the idea. But, the credit for its success goes to all Sharhad Yatra team members and workers who supported on this mission to draw attention of the country,” he added.

Tarak, after touring last villages, border out posts of all 19 border districts, had told media persons that local people have been living peacefully while security forces maintain bonhomie with them. They had also complained about improper implementation of some central and state Govt welfare schemes.

However, had also told media persons that there is no visible encroachment of land or intrusion by the PLA in Arunachal Pradesh since 1962 Indo-China War. His statement was enough to send a louder message to those who matter, including Beijing and PLA.

It may be recalled here that the attempt of over 200 Chinese troops armed with spiked clubs with nails on them, monkey fists and taser guns had clashed with Indian soldiers in Yangtse area, about 35 km from Tawang, on 09.12.22 morning. The Chinese were challenged by a group of about 50 Indian soldiers and repulsed them. This was repletion of a similar clash in October 2021.

India now remains firm on its strong foreign policy towards China, which is known for its “dog-tail policy” towards India.
