Arunachal part of India, says Mark Tully

Noted journalist and author Mark Tully today said Arunachal Pradesh is part of India. "I see no reason why this part of India will be part of China," Tully, the India correspondent of BBC from 1965 to 1994, told newsmen in Itanagar on Feb 28.

Tully said he is working on a book - India since economic liberalisation  which will contain a chapter on North-East, including Arunachal Pradesh. The heydays of ULFA in Assam, its tea industry besides Meghalaya and Manipur will certainly find mention, he said.

Responding to a volley of questions, he said people never opt for insurgency but become part of a compelling situation.
