"China’s claim is baseless. India has no boundary with China but with Tibet since China forcibly occupied Tibet in 1959 and they want to expand their boundary upto Arunachal which will not be accepted by the people of the state", Gao told reporters in Itanagar.

Earlier, the party staged a protest rally here against renaming of six places in the state by China.

They submitted a memorandum to Governor PB Acharya.
