Arunachal inalienable part of India: Govt

Asserting that east Indian state Arunachal Pradesh was India's "integral and inalienable" part, Government on Tuesday said Indian leaders visit that state as they visit other parts of the country, four days after China raised a strong protest over Prime Minister Narendra Modi going to that state.

"The state of Arunachal Pradesh is an integral and inalienable part of India. The people of Arunachal Pradesh are citizens of India. Indian leaders visit Arunachal Pradesh from time to time, as they visit other parts of India," Spokesperson of the External Affairs Ministry Syed Akbaruddin said.

He was replying to a query if there was any chance that India will give a strong reply to China on Arunachal Pradesh issue after it commented on Modi's visit to that state.

The Spokesperson was answering questions during a live 'Q&A' session on Facebook. Expressing its "diametrical opposition" to Modi's visit to Arunachal, China had lodged a strong protest with India, saying it was not conducive for resolving the border dispute.
