Tawang, Nov 7 (PTI) -- The Arunachal Pradesh
government has not taken the help of the army to
ensure security during Tibetan spiritual leader
the Dalai Lama's visit here beginning tomorrow.

"We have not taken the help of the army and
instead Lamas (Buddhist monks) and state police
are helping out in security arrangements," Chief
Minister Dorjee Khandu told reporters here.

Replying to a question on the recent objection by
China over the spiritual leader's visit to Tawang
and the strained relationship with Beijing, the
chief minister said it was the duty of the Centre to deal with the matter.

"The state's law and order is in our hands and in
the matter of international relations it is the
Government of India which deals with it, so ask them." Khandu said.
