Many PMs visited AP, objection non-issue: Congress

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 15, 2009

Itanagar, Oct 14 (PTI) The ruling Congress in Arunachal Pradesh today said many prime ministers of the country had visited the border state, and the Chinese objection to the recent one by Manmohan Singh, was a non-issue.

“Jawaharlal Nehru visited the state, then known as North Eastern Frontier Agency (NEFA) as early as 1955. Therefore the Chinese objection to the visit of Manmohan Singh is a non-issue,” APCC president Nabam Tuki said.

Indira Gandhi during her first visit in 1972 accorded union territory status after renaming it as Arunachal and came here again in 1984 to lay the foundation of Arunachal University.

Rajiv Gandhi visited Arunachal in 1987 to accord statehood, he said.

H D Deve Gowda came here in 1996 while L K Advani reached here as Deputy PM during the NDA rule in 2003, he said.
