The Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari said that all India needs from Pakistan and China is peace and also mentioned that India has no interest in grabbing the land belonging to other countries.
Amid the rising tensions along the China border and the recent dispute with Nepal, the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari addressed a virtual Jan Samvad Rally said,
“We should make India string by becoming expansionism, we should make India string for establishing peace. We never tried to grab the land of Bhutan. Our country made Sheikh Mujibur Rahman the Prime Minister of Bangladesh after winning the war with Pakistan in 1971, and our soldiers returned thereafter. We took not a single inch of land. We do not want land either of Pakistan or China. All we want is peace, amity, love, and wanted to work together.”
The minister also said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country saw peace by fiercely combating terrorism and insurgency. He said,
“Whether it is about almost winning over the Maoist problem or securing the country from Pakistan-sponsored terrorism. There is China on one side of our border and Pakistan on the other side. We want peace, not violence.”
Border Dispute With China Resolved
The border tensions between India and China has been intensifying in the last month after the clash of Chinese and Indian troops along the Line of Actual Control. Both countries do not have a defined border but a line of actual control that stretches thousands of kilometers from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh. While China has asked India to stop building infrastructure on its own side of the border, India has asked China to maintain the status quo. Over the last few weeks, both countries have deployed more troops along the line of actual control.
Following the intensification, the two countries held a formal meeting to resolve things down. The two countries did peacefully resolve the standoff after high-level authorities on both sides held a meeting. The meeting was held at the Border Personal Meeting Point in Moldo on the Chinese side of the line of actual control in eastern Ladakh.
