Speaking at a function organised by a media house, Jaitley added that the Government of Bhutan had made it clear that China was trying to claim Bhutanese land.

However, road construction is likely just a ruse as the Chinese want to push the established border close to the strategically important chicken's neck which is being resisted both by India and Bhutan.
