Bharatiya Janta Party General Secretary Ram Madhav reiterated India’s claim to Aksai Chin as its own, amid rising India-China tensions, Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) reported.

He said that India must show the same assertiveness on the Line of Actual Control with China as it has shown on the Line of Control with Pakistan, simply to protect its “self-respect” and defend its land “till the last inch”.

Mr. Madhav said the solution to the present standoff is actively engaging with China both diplomatically and militarily. The BJP leader was speaking at an event on the India-China border issue organised by RSS mouthpiece ‘Organiser’.

“Our claim is not just the LAC. Our claim goes beyond that. When it comes to J&K, it includes PaK (Pakistan-administered Kashmir) and when it comes to the UT of Ladakh, it includes Gilgit-Baltistan and Aksai Chin,” asserted Ram Madhav.

However, Mr. Madhav stressed India does not want to wage a war with China. But India’s assertiveness on its side of the LAC is required to “protect its self respect”. Madhav added that India will have to defend its land till the last inch.
