Arunachal CM criticises China for denying visa to State bureaucrat

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu on Monday criticised China for denying visa to a bureaucrat from the State and urged the Centre to solve the border dispute with Beijing.

New Delhi, May 28 : Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu on Monday criticised China for denying visa to a bureaucrat from the State and urged the Centre to solve the border dispute with Beijing.

Khandu said denial of visa to a bureaucrat from Arunachal was wrong.

"China's claim is wrong and I appeal to the Centre to raise and sort out the issue with China because it keeps on claiming Arunachal Pradesh. This is the third time they have denied visas to officers from the State. The Government of India has good relations with China; so it should try to sort out the issue," Khandu told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in New Delhi.

Beijing had denied travel permission to a bureaucrat who hails from Arunachal, intending to go to China on a cross border study programme comprising of 102 Indian Administrative Service officials, while the other participants were granted visas.

The visa was denied on grounds that since he hails from Arunachal Pradesh he is a Chinese citizen.

The neighbours share a 2,200-mile border, largely along the icy Himalayan mountains. Both the sides claim the other is occupying parts of its territory.

In 2006, when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited India, the two countries agreed on an 11-point roadmap to settle the border row politically.
