For India, the state is where the sun first rises being its easternmost region – each day, and from here light is spread across the country, he said in a speech to the state assembly.He also remarked on several steps taken by the federal government to advance the state’s transport links.“Before the border issue is resolved, both sides should jointly work hard to protect the peace and tranquility of the border region. China resolutely opposes Indian leaders’ activities in disputed regions,” Lu said.
