The tensions between Indian and Chinese forces along the border in eastern Ladakh continue to fester with both sides reinforcing their troop deployment resulting in “stand off” in at least three locations.
As China is bringing in a large number of Border Defence Regiment (BDR) troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) to force the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) to stop infrastructure-development activities, done by India, has decided to stay “dug in” and conduct “mirror deployment”,
The tension increases after Chinese troops objected to the Indian construction activity within the territory, which resulted that the both sides have been challenging each other’s patrols on regular basis.
After seeing the situation on the boarder at eastern Ladakh, the Indian troops are quite vigilant about the current apprising. Amid the tension, Army Chief General M.M. Naravane made a visit to the region on Friday and reviewed the developing situation there.
Sources told that the Chinese have built blocking point at Finger 2 to stop the Indian patrols from going ahead. They also objected to Indian construction of roads and other activity in Galwan valley, while China has itself carried out extensive construction at the place in order to confront India during the high voltage war like situation.
It is also said that Chines authority has brought in many companies of their constructions and para military organisations into various locations along the Galwan valley.
The sudden increase of Chinese troop movement in the valley is meant to put pressure the Indian authority in wake of Coronavirus issues to which the world is suffering from. The economic activities around the globe is block now.
