We reject such comments. #ArunachalPradesh is an integral & inalienable part of India. Indian leaders routinely travel to the State as they do to any other state of India: @MEAIndia on Chinese MFA's comments on recent visit of VP Naidu to Arunachal Pradesh
Objecting to the visit of Indian leaders to an Indian state does not stand to reason & understanding of Indian people: @MEAIndia
#China, on Wednesday, had objected to the recent visit of Vice President Venkaiah Naidu to #ArunachalPradesh, saying that it is firmly opposed to the Indian leader's visit to the state as it has never recognised it.

Sapria himalayana - a rare root parasite in Namdapha TR, Arunachal Pradesh. Earlier, it was known only from Namdapha within India, but in recent years,it has been found in a few other sites in Arunachal.
#ArunachalPradesh #rootparasites
Its pollination and seed dispersal systems remains unstudied - the fruiting bodies are believed to be dispersed by rodents - so many mysteries in the rainforests that we still need to find out..
I saw it in several different locations in Namdapha. Finding some patches with these startling bright flowers on the dark forest floor was always exciting.

The images from November 1, 2020 have been analysed by several experts who confirmed that the construction which is approximately 4.5 kms within the Indian territory of the facto border will be a huge concern for India.

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

📷Sourav Mondal

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

This thread clarifies the situation re #ElephantDeathCase #Kerala. Also, let's use this opportunity to reflect on the situation of #wildlife in #India today
1. People did not "feed" the elephant with cracker stuffed pineapple.
2. The elephant ate the bait laid to kill wild boars.
3. 1000s of wild boars are killed every year in a similar fashion.
4. Some don't die immediately, they suffer for a few days without a face or mouth to eat.
5. This kind of baiting needs to stop.
6. Wild boar lives matter too.
7. End #cruelty towards all #animals #nonhumans.
8. It didn't happen in Malappuram.
9. Why does religion need to come into the picture?
10. #BlackLivesMatter, but please also stand up for those marginalised in #India too (#DalitLivesMatter #MinorityLivesMatter).
11. Try to understand the problem & suggest a solution #Nonhumans

The demand for #BogibeelBridge started in early 1960s. Even the Chinese aggression couldn't wake successive #Congress govts to move an inch towards realising people's dream of a much needed bridge.
People struggled for decades, students fought with successive Congress govts but they wont blink. Ultimately, it took the might of #AssamAgitation to take note of #BogibeelBridge demand.
1985: #Assam Accord was signed whereby #BogibeelBridge was committed by #Congress government led by then Prime Minister late #RajivGandhi. A demand - among many others - that was acknowledged after martyrdom of 855 young students of #Assam
