New Delhi : China has finally sent his envoy Xu Feihong to India after a gap of 18 months amid the Ladakh border stand-off between the two countries since May 2020.

Feihong has reportedly arrived in New Delhi on Friday with his wife Tan Yuxiu. Welcome by all delegates.

According to The Indian Express report, Xu said, “China is ready to work with India to accommodate each other’s concerns and find a mutually acceptable solution to specific issues through dialogue at an early date.”

Earlier, 60 year-old Xu was appointed as the 17th Chinese Ambassador to India by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“China is ready to work with India to accommodate each other’s concerns, find a mutually acceptable solution to specific issues through dialogue at an early date, and turn the page as soon as possible,” Xu was quoted as saying.

He added: “I noted Prime Minister Modi’s comments on the importance of China-India ties, and the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson responded to that right afterwards.”

“The Chinese side always believes that China-India ties should not be defined by any single issue or area; the boundary question is not the entirety of the relationship. Speaking at the Indian Council of World Affairs in September 2014, President Xi Jinping said that we must not focus our attention only on differences and forget about our friendship and cooperation,” Xu said as per the report.

The Speaker named T N Prathapan, Hibi Eden, Jothimani, Ramya Haridas, and Dean Kuriakose for their role in disrupting House proceedings.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a week-long program called ‘Sankalp Saptaah’ aimed at improving the lives of people in aspirational blocks across India. The program focuses on efficient resource utilization, convergence, and public participation for grassroots development.

During the launch at Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi emphasized the significance of optimizing resources, stating that budgets alone cannot drive change, and efficient use of existing resources is equally crucial.

‘Sankalp Saptaah’ aligns with the Aspirational Blocks Programme (ABP) initiated by the Prime Minister in January. It aims to enhance governance at the block level, ultimately improving citizens’ quality of life.

To support the ABP’s successful implementation and develop robust strategies, ‘chintan shivirs’ (reflection workshops) were conducted at village and block levels nationwide. ‘Sankalp Saptaah’ represents the culmination of these deliberations and will be observed in all 500 aspirational blocks.

Throughout ‘Sankalp Saptaah,’ each day from October 3 to October 9 focuses on a specific development theme that all aspirational blocks will work on. These themes include ‘Sampoorna Swasthya’ (comprehensive health), ‘Suposhit Pariwaar’ (well-nourished families), ‘Swachhta’ (cleanliness), ‘Krishi’ (agriculture), ‘Shiksha’ (education), and ‘Samridhi Diwas’ (prosperity day).

The program’s final day, October 9, will celebrate the week’s achievements and efforts during ‘Sankalp Saptaah – Samavesh Samaroh.’ The inaugural event at Bharat Mandapam witnessed the participation of around 3,000 panchayat and block-level representatives and approximately two lakh people, including block and panchayat functionaries, farmers, and individuals from various backgrounds, who joined virtually.
