‘Tit-for-tat’: Himanta Sarma says Indian government should respond to China


Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Tuesday urged the Indian government to adopt a “tit-for-tat” approach in response to China’s efforts to rename places in Arunachal Pradesh.

Sarma suggested that India should counter by assigning its own names for 60 “Tibetan areas of China.”

“My request to the government of India is that we should give 60 geographical names to Tibetan areas of China,” Sarma told reporters here.

While maintaining that “it should always be tit-for-tat”, the CM added, “But I don’t want to comment as it is a policy decision of the government of India. But if they have named 30, we should name 60.”
