Even as chief minister Virbhadra Singh treaded cautiously on China’s objection to power lines along its border close to Shipki La, the state government has sought a detailed report from the Kinnaur district administration.

The home department has asked Kinnaur deputy commissioner DD Sharma to write to paramilitary and military authorities seeking a report on Chinese objections to electricity lines being laid between Namgia village to Lukma which is close to Shipkila pass, the gateway to  China-controlled  Tibetan Autonomous Region. 

“We have information but it’s yet not confirmed. This is also in the notice of the central government. Steps would be taken as per the directions from the Centre,”said Himachal Pradesh chif minister Virbhadra Singh while seeking to downplay the Chinese belligerence over the issue.

“This is a small incident. We do not want to add fuel to the matter,” he added.

Lukma is a border outpost, which is close to Shipki village.
