Rajnath Singh has raised the issue with China through diplomatic channels.

Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, stated in the Lok Sabha, “On December 9, PLA soldiers infiltrated and made an attempt to alter the status quo in the Yangtse region of the Tawang sector. Our soldiers attacked this effort with a firm hand. Our soldiers valiantly prevented the PLA from entering our land and forced them to return to their position.”
