China renaming Arunachal places won't change our status: Rijiju

China renaming Arunachal places won't change our status: Rijiju

Itanagar, Jan 6 (UNI) Union Minister for Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju on Thursday rejected China’s reported move to rename 15 locations of Arunachal Pradesh, wondering “how can we accept the renaming of our places by outsider”.
Asked for his comment on recent media reports that China has renamed 15 locations of Arunachal Pradesh in its own language, Rijiju, who was on a day’s visit to the state capital on Thursday, said, “Such actions (by the neighbouring country) will not alter the state’s status. Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India and will remain so…Outsider cannot change it,” he said without mentioning China.
“If someone changes our name from outside the country, will we accept it? Your name is what your parents gave you... someone else forcibly changing your name, would you agree?” he quizzed.
