Undefined LAC major reason for border row with China: Ladakh BJP MP


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Leh, Sep 14 : Ladakh Member Parliament Jamyang Tsering Namgyal Saturday said that New Delhi and Beijing need to sit down and properly define the Line of Actual Control (LAC) to avoid border skirmishes as the undefined border was the major reason of rift between India and China.

According to wire service, describing the tension reported earlier this week along the border as “nothing serious”, the BJP MP from the just-carved out Union Territory said, “we should not worry too much about such developments”.

The LAC has often witnessed skirmishes between troops of the two Asian giants on differing claims over the territory.

“The actual problem on our border is that the border is not defined properly because of which China feels one thing and we feel another. The actual line of control is not fixed and demarcated properly, because of which such troubles keep recurring,” Namgyal told reporters last evening, as per KNO correspondent. He also said that cows and other livestock do walk across the borders leading to some tension at the local level.

The BJP MP, who shot to national fame with a speech in the Lok Sabha supporting the August 5 move of the Centre to abrogate the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370, also claimed that the Chinese have not been able to claim any land since 2014 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power. He said the people of the region are extremely happy with the new UT status.

When asked about a few posters of resentment propping up at some places, he denied the existence of any such sentiment or of the posters. He also thanked the Modi led government for announcing a medical college in Ladakh. (KNO)
