Cong slams Modi move to announce
e-visas for Chinese tourists
New Delhi, May 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement today of e-visas for
Chinese tourists drew flak from Congress as it charged that the facility was extended
without resolving the issue of stapled visas handed by the neighbouring country to
people from Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.
Congress spokesman RPN Singh rued that New Delhi had agreed to the arrangement without
Beijing first doing away with stapled visas.
"Diplomacy is all about quid pro quo and reciprocity," Singh told PTI while pointing
out that the issue of e-visas was first raised by former prime minister Manmohan
Singh when he had visited China. That time, the matter was tagged to the issue of
China issuing stapled visas.
"It is unfortunate that the matter (of stapled visas) has not been raised this time
at all," he averred.
In a confidence-building measure, Modi, who is on an official visit to China, announced
today that India will grant e-visas to Chinese tourists.
The e-visa announcement came in the teeth of concerns expressed by the Home Ministry
and security agencies over its possible misuse even as the External Affairs Ministry
and Ministry of Tourism pressed for it. Besides, the e-visa announcement was seen
as a prelude to India relaxing investment norms for China to attract large- scale
As to controversy kicked up yesterday over China's state- owned television showing
India's map without Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh while reporting on Modi's
visit, the Congress spokesman said it was "extremely belittling".
"We should take strong exception to it," he added.
The erroneous map was displayed during a bulletin while Modi was in Xi'an city, where
he held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping yesterday.
China has been laying territorial claim over Arunachal Pradesh and parts of Jammu
and Kashmir, but India has been strongly resisting it.
Another Congress spokesman, Abhishek Singhvi, took a dig at the Modi government over
the map controversy and said that the Chinese, through their action, had showed just
how "strong" his dispensation was.
Singhvi further said on twitter that he is unable to understand the rationale behind
the Prime Minister's visit to China. "Still trying to understand the rationale behind
Modi's China visit. It is as if he is on a summer vacation," he tweeted.
Congress has strongly objected to China's state-owned television CCTV showing India's
map without Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh while reporting on Prime Minister
Narendra Modi's visit and termed it as an "objectionable act".
"This happened when the Indian Prime Minister is visiting China. This is an objectionable
act which we strongly object to," said JKPCC chief Ghulam Ahmed Mir.
He also attacked the BJP government over its move that reduced the strength of the
proposed Mountain Strike Corps to 50,000 from 90,000.

Modi’s China visit disappointing: ACR
ITANAGAR, May 16: While appreciating some of the outcomes of Prime Minister Narendra
Modi’s China visit, Arunachal Citizens’ Rights (ACR) today deeply expressed concern
at the absence of any immediate resolution related to the longstanding problems faced
by the people of Arunachal Pradesh within the ambit of Indo-China relation.
“The current visit of PM Modi raised the hope that, border dispute will be addressed
adequately and most probably resolved at the earliest. But to our utter disappointment
and dismay, the outcome has been unclear and mostly business oriented. The statements
are not comprehensive and reflect deliberate ignorance thus betraying the trust of
the people,” the ACR said in a statement.
Stating that Indian side is willing to do everything to woo Chinese investments
and technologies right from signing several MOUs, e-visa, to cultural and educational
exchanges, the ACR lamented that the citizens of Arunachal are being treated as
a ping pong ball in this geo-political and geo-economic game. “Since people of Arunachal
has a stake in the Indo-China relation, it is disappointing that we are being left
from the ambit of P.M’s visit to China.
