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.
