Govt briefs opposition parties on Dokalam, Kashmir situation

On Jammu and Kashmir, government's chief spokesman Frank Noronha said the basic objective of the meeting was to apprise the MPs from different parties of the situation following the attack on Amarnath yatris on July 10.

Representatives from Opposition parties attended the meet.

The Centre, on Friday, held an all-party meet to discuss the Sikkim standoff and attack at Amarnath, where it told the Opposition that China has "breached and encroached" territory at the disputed Doklam area.

While the meeting was largely around the Chinese issue, the opposition also had some questions relating to Jammu and Kashmir. The leaders were told by the government officials that Indian soldiers are facing problems from the Chinese side. "Importance of India and China to remain engaged through diplomacy was underlined", said Baglay. "There were no answers", Yechury told DH after the meeting.

The Opposition parties on Friday had tough questions for the government on its handling of the China and Kashmir episodes, but said they did not get all the answers they wanted.

All the parties at the meeting condemned the July 10 terror attack on the Amarnath pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir that left seven people dead and almost 20 injured.

Among the parties which took part in the meeting were the Congress, the BJP, AIADMK, DMK, JD-U, Trinamool Congress, CPI-M, TRS, BSP, Samajwadi Party, YSR Congress, Shiv Sena and TDP.

The standoff between India and China in the Doka La Plateau, adjoining the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan, is now a month old, with no end to it in sight yet. Everyone said that they, across party lines, are with the government over the issue.

The DG PIB F Noronha said that basic goal was to apprise MPs from different parties about situation on terrorist attack on Amarnath Yatris on July 10.

Union minister Paswan said the external affairs minister and foreign secretary gave a detailed information on border issue especially in Dokalam.

Following the meeting, Derek O'Brien said that while all parties listened to government's response on China, the general sense was that India should also engage diplomatically with the neighbouring country.

On the Amarnath killings, some parties cornered the government on the issue of a "security failure" of the forces.

The government is also likely to brief the leaders of other parties who could not attend the July 14 meeting.
