ITANAGAR: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU) on Friday criticized Beijing for repeated incursions and creating tensions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with India.
While talks between India and China have been going on since past many months at various levels with both sides agreeing on wide range of issues, it is very surprising to note that the Chinese forces on the ground are doing exact opposite of what is being jointly agreed, the apex students' body of the state said in a statement here.
Either the PLA is a 'rogue' army bereft of any discipline or the Chinese government does not wants peace along the LAC, AAPSU president Hawa Bagang and General Secretary Tabom Dai said.
"We are very much shocked and agitated that even in times of Covid-19 induced sufferings, the Chinese are resorting to war-mongering and mentally harassing the peaceful people living along the LAC by their rhetoric's and notorious antics," the AAPSU leaders said.
"The entire state and AAPSU stands strong with the brave jawans of the army. Being the voice of the easternmost border state of Arunachal Pradesh, we will never propagate anything other than peace. However, we strongly urge our army for giving a befitting reply to any misadventures from across the border," the statement said.
The AAPSU further said that due to illogical and non-sensical claims by the Chinese government, people of Arunachal Pradesh have been denied funding for development projects from international agencies since last many years.
"After creating artificial disputes with various nations in South China Sea, forcefully subjugating the people of Tibet, mass human rights violations against Uighurs, stifling dissent in Hongkong, China is creating tensions along our borders to divert public attention from the numerous problems they are facing back home," the union said.
The AAPSU added that the Chinese should respect the MacMohon line and refrain from blatant provocations.
"We urge the union government to maintain extra vigil along the borders and also to take up the issue of independence of Tibet at all international forums," the statement added.
