Urging the union government to raise its voice against the Chinese invasion, Gupta said, "Silence can cost our nation dearly. The Centre must protest this."Gupta also claimed that China resorted to violence on the border in order to create upheavals across India.
The Shiv Sena state president reminded that the invasion of Chinese troops into Chumar area in Leh-Ladakh had caused tensions between New Delhi and Beijing in April. The troops also had threatened the locals in Hindi two weeks ago, Gupta alleged.
Recalling the earlier differences with China, Gupta said it had issued stapled visas to the residents of Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh, claiming that they live in a disputed territory."China treats Arunachal Pradesh as a part of its own land. It also made illegal constructions in Gilgit," Gupta said.
