ITANAGAR, July 22 - Arunachal Parliamentary Secretary Bamang Felix has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of remaining �silent� when China welcomed him with a map of India without the State in it during his visit to Beijing in May.
�The Prime Minister silenced everybody but China silenced him by demonstrating India�s map without Arunachal during his visit to the country,� Felix said while participating in the budget discussion in the Assembly yesterday. He also criticised the BJP members for not opposing it.
In response to Felix�s charges, BJP leader Taga said that whole of Arunachal Pradesh was included as part of China in that country�s map and text books since 1949 but the Centre has been continuously protesting. �For this problem, the Centre cannot snap relations with China,� he added. � PTI
