China firmly opposes Modi's visit to border region

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday lashed out at the Congress, saying it ignored the nation's security during its tenure and alleged it was associated with several scams in the defence sector.

Later, India issued a strong rebuttal to China's objections, reiterating that Arunachal Pradesh remains "an integral and inalienable part of India".

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying in response to a question on Modi's visit said, "China's position on the China-India boundary question is consistent and clear-cut".

Making a pitch for his government ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the PM said that while the previous governments neglected the state for decades, the NDA government is trying to help in the development of North East.

China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of its territory and calls it South Tibet.

In Karnataka, Modi will first lay the foundation stone of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-Dharwad) and dedicate the city distribution project in Dharwad and 1.5-tonne Mangaluru strategic petroleum facility (SPR) and the 2.5-tonne Padur SPR facility of the state-run Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserves Ltd (ISPRL).

He will also lay the foundation-stone through remote control system for construction of a coastal terminal of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited at Krishnapatnam in SPS Nellore district. He also addressed a public function in Itanagar, where he stressed that improving connectivity to the north-eastern state was important.

After two tense months, the troops from both countries withdrew and last April, Modi met with Xi Jinping in an effort to reset bilateral relations.

"Our regular interactions have added significant strength to India-China ties", he had said.

The TDP had pulled out of the BJP-led NDA government a year ago.

"Indian leaders visit Arunachal Pradesh from time to time, as they visit other parts of India".
