Responding to China’s act of renaming six cities of Arunachal Pradesh, the spokesperson of Ministry of External Affairs, Gopal Baglay on Thursday said this doesn’t make illegally held territory legal. While addressing the media he added that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India. “Renaming or inventing a name does not make illegally held territory legal. Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India,” Baglay was quoted as saying by the news agency ANI.
Earlier in the day, the Union Minister for Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, Information and Broadcasting Venkaiah Naidu gave a strong reply to China by saying every inch of Arunachal Pradesh belongs to India and no country has the right to rename our cities. On Wednesday, China had announced that it has ‘standardised’ official names for six places in Arunachal Pradesh and termed the provocative move as a ‘legitimate action’.
