Indian Opposition Protest

India's main opposition parties have expressed disappointment over the government's handling of an attack on Hindu pilgrims in occupied Kashmir and border tension with China.

The Narendra Modi-led government on Friday held a meeting with opposition parties in New Delhi to discuss these two issues.

The main opposition party congress said that it would ask questions from the government in the parliament, while regional trinamool congress expressed disappointment with government's explanation.

Congress' Senior Leader, Anand Sharma, said the government must use diplomatic tools to resolve the situation peacefully with china.

Troops from the two sides confronted each other close to a valley controlled by china that separates India from Bhutan - and gives China access to the so-called chicken's neck, a thin strip of land that connects India to its remote northeastern regions.
