"Why is Rijiju silent on the renaming issue? Is he afraid of speaking? He being an MP from Arunachal Pradesh makes him duty bound to be the first one to react to China's naming of these places," NCP's national spokesperson Clyde Crasto said in a statement.

Rijiju should concentrate on his duty as an MP too and voice all the "wrongdoings" of China against the state he belongs to, he added.
