Bharatiya Janata Party Guwahati, March 21 (IANS) The youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Assam Wednesday burnt a Chinese flag, protesting against Chinese military incursion into India’s northeast.

The protesters also denounced the Congress-led central government for not taking action against Beijing’s repeated claims over Arunachal Pradesh and other parts of the region.

The protest came after an English daily here published pictures of Google Earth, showing a thin red line marked as China Claim Line passing over areas of north of Brahmaputra river in Assam.

The map sought to give an impression that these were Chinese territory.

“Initially it was Arunachal Pradesh and now the Chinese have started claiming the north bank of Assam,” said P.S. Dey, the Yuva Morcha secretary.

“It’s a matter of shame that a prime minister elected from Assam is not taking any action,” he said.
