Itanagar, Apr 29 (PTI) China’s claim on Arunachal Pradesh is baseless as it is an integral part of India, state BJP President Tapir Gao said today.
“China s claim is baseless. India has no boundary with China but with Tibet since China forcibly occupied Tibet in 1959 and they want to expand their boundary upto Arunachal which will not be accepted by the people of the state”, Gao told reporters here.
Earlier, the party staged a protest rally here against renaming of six places in the state by China.
They submitted a memorandum to Governor P B Acharya.
