India China war
NEW DELHI: Ruling out the potential of China exploiting
in the northeast to stoke trouble in India,
home secretary Ajay Bhalla
on Friday said the central government was in
with almost all rebel outfits active in the region, thus minimising the scope for any major disruptions.
“There could be potential but not that much. These people (insurgents) have lost that kind of massive support. The leadership of Ulfa is back in
and talking to the government. The
people, after the ceasefire, are sitting in Delhi and talking to us for a final settlement. We don’t see that kind of major disruptions coming,” Bhalla said in a webinar when asked whether the government foresaw China’s involvement in the eastern sector in the aftermath of the Ladakh stand-off.
The home secretary said the situation in the northeast was “well under control” and the central government was providing assistance to the state governments to deal with insurgent groups and also carrying out negotiations with the rebel outfits. “There has been a settlement with the Bodos after a long struggle, talks are in an advanced stage with the NSCN to resolve the Naga issue,” he said.
