Ravi Kishan on Monday raised the issue of consumption of drugs in the film industry and urged the Centre to take strict action against the culprits involved in it.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also addressed the Parliament on the India-China border issue. Addressing the lower house of the Parliament, Lok Sabha, Rajnath Singh said that both India and China agree that it is essential to improve the bilateral relations between the two neighbours and to maintain peace and tranquillity along with the India-China border areas. However, the defence minister said that the issue between the two neighbours remains unresolved. He also said that China doesn’t recognise the traditional and customary alignment of the boundary, while India considers that alignment is based on well established geographical principles.
