New Delhi, 06 December 2020

As per news report of NDTV, Beijing disputes the boundary between India and China in this region and the new constructions here could be a significant step towards reinforcing its territorial claims along the Arunachal Pradesh frontier. ''China has been using a strategy of settling Han Chinese and Tibetan members of the Communist Party along the India border to strengthen its territorial claims and escalate border intrusions,'' says China-watcher Dr. Brahma Chellaney. ''Like it used fishermen in the South China Sea, China uses civilian resources - herders & grazers - as the tip of the spear to intrude into Indian-patrolled Himalayan areas.''
