bilateral relations with China can be expanded and boundary issue can be discussed simultaneously, but peace and tranquility at border will affect relations: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in Rajya Sabha #LAC
Overlap on LAC's perception between India and China in many places: Rajnath Singh in Rajya Sabha
in May, China obstructed patrolling by Indian troops in Galwan leading to face-offs, in western sector also China tried to transgress- Gogra, Hotspring and Pangong. our troops took adequate steps. China was told that attempts to change the status quo not acceptable: Rajnath Singh
China took provocative actions on August 29-30 to change the status quo in South Pangong. China has violated the 1993 and 1996 agreements. The violent conduct of Chinese is a violation of all mutual pacts: Rajnath Singh
Massive deployment by China at several friction points, India has also made counter deployment. cannot disclose many details as it is a sensitive matter. ITBP and armed forces should be praised for their work : Rajnath Singh
India will not step back however difficult the circumstances are: Rajnath Singh in Rajya Sabha #LAC
it is in our hands to start the war but no one knows how it might end....our troops have shown strength as well as resilience and patience: Rajnath Singh #LAC
we have made adequate arrangements for the jawans, be it food or armaments, they have been guarding positions where oxygen level is low, they have been guarding Siachen....they are standing eye to eye with the Chinese: Rajnath Singh #LAC
Congress leader A.K Antony seeks to know from Defence Minister why Indian troops are not being allowed to patrol areas as earlier, such as Finger area in Pangong, where India earlier patrolled till Finger 8, now it is pushed to Finger 4. Galwan was never a disputed site, he adds
Unlike Lok Sabha, after a minister has made a statement in Rajya Sabha, the MPs can seek clarifications from the government. However, many Opposition MPs are using the time to give one-lone speeches and not ask specific questions on the issue!
I want to clarify the face-off is happening because China is obstructing patrolling, no power can stop us from patrolling, no changes will be there in patrolling pattern: Rajnath Singh replying to A.K Antony's question

Supriya Sule asks a pertinent question on FCRA Bill limiting admin expenses to 20% from the current 50%. How have you reached this magic figure? are you going to fix the salaries of NGO employees now? What is next? fixing salaries of CEOs?
MoS Home @nityanandraibjp :when UPA government brought the FCRA Bill in 2010, we supported it. This amendment is not against the NGOs or an attack against a religion and it does not stop Foreign contribution
.@nityanandraibjp : FCRA amendment is required for an Atmanirbhar bharat. Centre wants to spend the foreign funds in right direction, Opposition doesnt want that, Opposition is misled.

The Naga peace talks have hit rough weather even as the leadership of NSCN-IM led by T Muivah (86) held a detailed meeting with two Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials in New Delhi on Monday. NSCN wants interlocutor R.N Ravi to be removed. I report…
A senior government official said, “The letter by Nagaland Governor alluding to the NSCN-IM as an armed gang was seen as an insult by the leadership. The movement is more than 70 years old and they feel that the trust they established with the interlocutor is now broken.”
