Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin on Friday said there were some disputed areas along the India-China border, but there was no incursion as such. As the McMahon Line between India and China was imaginary, there were a few places along the international border where Indians and Chinese sometimes criss-crossed.
Talking to journalists a day after taking charge, Mr. Gamlin said it was important for everyone to realise that Arunachal was an integral part of India. The State was passing through a difficult period following the sad demise of Dorjee Khandu and people should remain calm and strive to realise his dream of making the State a developed one.
Asked about the activities of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) in the State, he said the insurgents should keep themselves confined to designated camps and not come to Arunachal Pradesh. He urged them to talk to the Government of India for resolving their problems.
Mr. Gamlin said his priorities would be improving the communication, education, health and tourism sectors.
