  • Narendra Modi arrives to attend the Beating the Retreat ceremony in New Delhi

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to hold rallies in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu on Sunday, the TDP, Congress and the Left parties have planned to hold protests against his visit.

"China urges the Indian side to.respect China's interests and concerns, cherish the momentum of improving relations between the two countries, and refrain from any actions that intensify disputes and complicate the border issue", the Foreign Ministry in Beijing said in a statement.

The area of Arunachal Pradesh remains a sensitive subject for both countries as they have both claimed it, with China seeing it as southern Tibet.

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said Modi had no right to visit the state as he has not fulfilled his promise to accord the SCS and various other commitments the Prime Minister had made during the state's bifurcation in 2014. "The Chinese government has never recognised the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh" and is firmly opposed to the Indian leader's visit to the East Section of the China-India boundary". "This consistent position has been conveyed to the Chinese side on several occasions".

However, in April 2018, there seemed to be an effort to improve bilateral ties when Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met.
