The opposition has launched an all-out attack at the Centre over a host of issues ranging from price rise to Nagaland killings to Chinese village in Arunachal Pradesh. 

The Congress has given an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over reports of China setting up villages near Arunachal Pradesh and Doklam. 

The adjournment motion notice has been given by Congress Lok Sabha MP Manish Tewari. 

Earlier, the Congress had demanded an apology from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and withdraw the “clean chit” that the PM gave to China after a US defence report mentioned setting up of a village by Beijing in Arunachal Pradesh.  

A US defence report to the country’s Congress claimed that China had entered at least 4.5 km into Arunachal Pradesh.

A report of the United States’ department of defence has mentioned the 100-home Chinese village that was reportedly built by China “inside disputed territory between the PRC’s Tibet Autonomous Region and India’s Arunachal Pradesh”.   

The US defence report has been titled – “Report on Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China – 2021”.  

This report establishes the revelation made by US-based imaging company Planet Labs in January 2021, when it released a series of photographs, claiming that around 100 houses have been built along the river Tsari Chu in the upper Subansiri district in Arunachal Pradesh.   

“Sometime in 2020, the People’s Republic of China built a large 100-home civilian village inside disputed territory between the PRC’s Tibet Autonomous Region and India’s Arunachal Pradesh state in the eastern sector of the LAC,” the report said in a chapter relating to the India-China border standoff.
