They expressed disapproval of attempts by a section of polity led by Congress and using these incidents to indulge in one-upmanship. 

“Series of confidence-building measures have taken place over last few days. Yet actions of Congress remain as devious and mischievous,” the BJP MPs said in the memorandum.

The Arunachal Pradesh MP further said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi told BJP MPs that his love and affection for the Northeast is natural, should not be looked at it from the prism of politics.
