S. Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs, took a jab at China for its claims to the state of Arunachal Pradesh, stating that renaming the region wouldn’t change anything and that it will always remain a part of India.

“Will your house become mine if I change its name today?” Jaishankar asked at a press conference in Gujarat. India’s Arunachal Pradesh was, is, and always will be a state. There is no impact when names are changed.”

“Our army is deployed at the Line of Actual Control…,” said EAM.

China has asserted its claim to the state of Arunachal Pradesh once more. Branding the Indian State as “Zangan—an inherent part of China’s territory,” Beijing’s Defence Ministry declared that it “never acknowledges and firmly opposes” the “so-called Arunachal Pradesh illegally established by India.”

After that, India declared that the northeastern state is a “integral and inalienable part of India” and once more rejected the “absurd claims” and “baseless arguments.”

The people of Arunachal Pradesh will “continue to benefit” from India’s development programmes and infrastructural developments, according to a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs.

“We have taken note of the remarks made by the Chinese Defence Ministry Spokesperson asserting ludicrous claims over the area of the Indian State of Arunachal Pradesh.

“Arunachal Pradesh is an essential and unalienable component of India and has always been so. Our infrastructure initiatives and development programmes will continue to benefit its people, the statement continued.

China regularly objects to trips by Indian politicians to Arunachal Pradesh in order to accentuate its claims, as it regards the state as South Tibet. The region is also known as “Zangnan” in Beijing.
