Transgression, Not Incursion: Parrikar On Chinese Troops Entering India

Terming the recurring incidents of Chinese troops entering Indian territory as “transgression, not incursions”, Union defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday emphasised that clarity over the Line of Actual Control would bring down tension between the troops on both sides that patrolled the areas.

The minister was reacting to a question on the recent intrusion of Chinese troops in Arunachal Pradesh during a media conference here. He was taking part in the Vikas Parv programme organised by the local BJP unit to highlight the achievements of the NDA government in its two-year rule.

Mr Parrikar said that both sides committed mistakes frequently since there was no demarcation and they returned after senior military officers took up the matter with their counterparts. Responding to a question on beheading Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops in 2010, he said that the NDA was not in power then and would retaliate immediately without any hesitation if such incidents were repeated now.

He said that security forces had neutralised 50 infiltrators in the recent past, besides the four infiltrators neutralized on Thursday. Mr Parrikar asserted that the NDA government was committed to bringing back black money but absence of bipartisan agreements with several countries across the globe was affecting the progress. He added that officials were visiting these country to enter into agreements for mutual cooperation to overcome the problem.
