Patna: The BJP on Sunday demanded that the government set up a parliamentary group for detailed study and overseeing of border issues with China and a statutory high -powered autonomous border management group at the national level.

The party has also demanded making public the recommendations of the China Study Group on Border Infrastructure Development, BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters here.

The demands were made after the preliminary report of a BJP fact finding committee on Chinese incursions was submitted at the party national executive.

The committee headed by party MP Bhagat Singh Koshiyari recommended measures to stop Chinese incursion by creating new posts to man the gaps at different points for which the strength of ITBP should be increased.

It also laid stress on increasing Army's strength to match deployment on Chinese side of the border and improvement in roads and communications.

Senior party leader L K Advani complimented the fact finding team for its work.
