JAMMU, Nov 16 � Amid reports of China training the Pakistani army, Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju today said India has conveyed its �dismay� to China and asked it not to support Pakistan�s activities directed against this country, reports PTI.
�The Ministry of External Affairs has already expressed its dismay to the Chinese side, that it should not support Pakistan�s anti-India activities,� Rijiju told PTI.
A report submitted by the intelligence wing of the Border Security Force recently said that the Chinese troops have been seen training Pakistani army personnel in �weapon handling techniques� opposite the Line of Control in Rajouri sector of J&K where the paramilitary force is deployed.
The report has added that these military manoeuvres were being conducted at the forward defence locations of Pakistan that are usually manned by Pakistan Rangers, that country�s paramilitary force.
To another question, Rijiju said development of areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) on the China border is a priority of the Narendra Modi government.
�The people who live in Ladakh and in the areas along the LAC are Indians and have every right for development. We are committed to developing a top class road connectivity and other related infrastructure for them,� he said.
