Mumbai, Dec 16: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has blamed former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s short-sightedness for the situation on the Indo-Tibetan border.
Speaking at an event in Mumbai on Thursday, Khandu said that after the Simla Agreement, the entire Arunachal Pradesh including Tawang was made the territory of India.
“Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had played a decisive role in this. But due to the failure of the then Prime Minister to take any timely decision, the situation continued to worsen,” he said.
He said that history has been tampered with and the present government is working to correct this tampering.
“Today, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the country is recognizing its unsung heroes and they are being given a place in the curriculum,” he said.
