Tapir Gao has alleged that the Chinese army has intruded into the Anjaw district and constructed a bridge over a stream. The local MP has claimed that the Chinese troops have made an incursion into the Indian territory and built a bridge over Kiomru Nullah in Chaglagam circle.
A local youth has said that the area is approximately 25 km northeast of Chaglagam and is very much inside the Indian territory.
No official of the Indian Army or civilian administration in Arunachal Pradesh was available for comments.
In October 2018, an Indian Army patrol came across Chinese troops in the area, Gao claimed. Gao told journalists that as a representative of the state, I have requested the Centre for development of infrastructure along the Sino-Indo border in Arunachal Pradesh like construction of a road between Hayuliang, the district headquarters of Anjaw, and Chaglagam and beyond.
He said that it was necessary to stop such incidents. He also added that the condition of the road between Hayuliang and Chaglagam is very poor and virtually no road exists beyond that point.
India and China share a 4,000 km border leading to incursions by the two sides into each other’s territory. China also claims that Arunachal Pradesh is part of south Tibet.
