Disputed Sino-India borders have again come to the fore with allegations and counter-allegations between Nepal’s two giant neighbors, China and India.

India has, since early this year, been alleging Chinese People’s Liberation Army of intruding deep into Indian territory. The latest of such Indian accusation against China came earlier this week when, according to Indian officials, PLA crossed the LAC (Line of Actual Control) between China and India in Arunachal Pradesh. Practically Arunachal Pradesh is governed by India, while this territory is claims by China as South Tibet.

China denies any wrong doing in the disputed borders.

The media reports of India’s plan to build new border posts near the disputed borders in the eastern area have provoked Chinese government.

On Thursday, October 30, China urged India not to take actions that will complicate the situation on the border, where the two countries have territorial disputes, Xinhua, the Chinese news agency, reported.

According to Xinhua, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun made the comment at a monthly briefing in response to a question on India’s plan to build 54 border posts near the southern Tibet area.

‘We have taken notice of the reports. China and India have disputes over the eastern part of their border. We hope India will try to help maintain stability and peace in the border areas, instead of taking moves that may further complicate the situation,’ spokesman Yang Yujun is quoted by Xinhua as saying.

According to a press release from Chinese Foreign Ministry on September 30, China and India have completed the withdrawal of troops from a standoff at the border.

    Rahul spreading hatred, RSS tells EC in complaint

    TNN | Bangalore | Mar 8, 2014:: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh filed a complaint with the Election Commission on Friday against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his speech at Sonale village in Thane, Maharashtra, calling it “politically motivated false propaganda”.

    Alleging Rahul had made several false, unverified and unfounded allegations against the sangh during his Maharashtra tour, RSS spokesman Ram Madhav said, “The complainant wishes to point out that the statement by Rahul Gandhi was made deliberately, with ulterior political motive … equating the RSS with BJP and to spread hatred against both in sections of society.”

    Charging Rahul with violating the model code of conduct, the RSS demanded “appropriate” action against him. In the contentious speech, Rahul had referred to the RSS and said “… They have killed Gandhiji, today they talk about Gandhiji.” RSS alleged that the unverified statements against it were made in a Muslim-dominated district. “He linked RSS to the BJP, a rival of the Congress,” the complaint reads.

    Stressing that the media coverage of the speech by several TV channels and print media was sufficient evidence, the organization argued that such statements were made to spread hatred.
