Don't interfere in our affairs: India to China

 Amid the ongoing row over the Dalai Lama’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday asked China not to interfere in India’s internal affairs.

Rijiju said India never interfered in Beijing’s affairs and has always respected the “One China” policy.

“There is no political angle behind his holiness’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh. It is completely religious. Arunachal Pradesh is an inseparable part of India and China should not object to his visit and interfere in India’s internal affairs,” Rijiju told reporters.

The minister said the religious sentiments of every community must be respected and nobody should have a problem with the Dalai Lama’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh. He also said China is trying to project him as a political leader while his visit is purely religious.

“The people of Arunachal desire to have good neighbourly relations with the people of China,” Rijiju said, adding, “We never intend to have any problem with our neighbours.” The Dalai Lama will hold religious discourse with devotees in Tawang, Bomdial and other areas.
