Maharashtra NCP criticises PM Modi on Chinese village in Arunachal



The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has criticised the Union Government over media reports about China building a village in Arunachal Pradesh and sarcastically asked whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi was implementing a special housing scheme for the neighbouring country.

Maharashtra NCP chief spokesperson Mahesh Tapase said the Centre would have to explain the issue.

‘China has already infiltrated Ladakh. Now, it has built a village of 101 homes in India’s Arunachal Pradesh,’ Tapase said, citing media reports.

The NCP leader also questioned how no one took note of China’s reported construction inside Indian territory.

‘Is Prime Minister Modi implementing a special housing scheme for China? The Centre will have to explain the issue,’ he said.

The report about China setting up a new village in Arunachal Pradesh comes amid a military standoff in eastern Ladakh for over eight months.
