Indian troops were detained in Ladakh
Chinese troops have reportedly detained Indian troops in Ladakh. But this was denied by the Indian army. Reports suggest that the Chinese invasion of China was made against a group of Indian Army, Indo-Tibetan forces and police patrolling Ladakh. Reports have surfaced that Chinese troops have seized their weapons. However, they have been released. Military sources have denied the reports. However, the Indian Army leadership has not formally responded.
The reason for the Chinese provocation
China has been provoked by India’s attempt to build roads in the Indian territory for patrolling facilities near the Line of Control. China claims that India builds its own road. This is what led to the conflict. The Indian road was built near Pangyong Lake. On May 5, the two armies clashed. Here are eight mountain ranges. It’s called the 8 Fingers. India’s position is that it is the fourth mountain (Fig. 4). But the Chinese claim that the Line of Control is to be further back 10 km.
Dok La, Galvan: Conflict Areas
The dispute between India and China is years old. At present, the violence is burning in North Sikkim and Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. China has long claimed over Arunachal Pradesh. But in recent years, the Chinese military has been focusing more on Ladakh. The 2017 Indo-China clash in Dok Lai, Sikkim, is the latest in a string of controversies. Ladakh is the biggest conflict since then. India and China share an 826-km border in eastern Ladakh. Both armies face off in the Galvan Valley and Pangyong in eastern Ladakh.
500 encounters a year
Last year, India and China clashed 500 times in the Ladakh region. The Indian Army is also focusing more on this area. India has been strengthening its defenses here since 2002. Roads along the border were expanded and more troops deployed. A new landing ground was built to store equipment for the army. From Ladakh to Arunachal, there are 23 places in the 4000-km border. The most vulnerable areas in the Ladakh region are the Demochok, Chumar, Trigg hills, Dumchele, Spangur Gap and Pangong Tso. In the central region, Barahoti, Kauric, Shipki La, East region Dichu, Namkachu, Asafi La, Yangzi and Dibang are also conflict areas.
Indian move that provoked China
India’s criticism of Kovid has also angered China. India has adopted the Kovid-19 campaign, which stands as an internationally isolated China. India supported the US claim that China was responsible for the spread of the coronavirus and called for an investigation into the disease. They are also provoking India’s move to overturn the isolated China in the name of Kovid. India is trying to lure US companies leaving China. It is estimated that this is what is now driving China to inflame border disputes.
Protest in Nepal
In recent days, Nepal has been severely critical of India. The provocation of Nepal was provoked by the construction of an Indian road to reduce the distance of the Mansarovar journey. India built a new road from Dharchula to the Lipullekh Pass on the Tibet border. Nepal claims the Kalapani region to be the southernmost point of the Lipulekh Pass. Kalapani is a border between India and Nepal and Tibet. But India claims that the road was built on its own. Nepal’s ruling party, the Communist Party of Nepal, has come out against India. Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said yesterday that the virus from India is far more deadly than it is from China. India suspects that China is behind Nepal’s sudden protests. India has strongly criticized the revision of the Nepal map to include Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura.
Pak provocation that continues during the Great Depression
Despite the devastation of the Kovid-19 pestilence, including in India and Pakistan, the border tensions have been minimal. Pakistani shelling has continued for two months on the international border and the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. India is also attacking. India is believed to be trying to smuggle terrorists into India under the cover of the Line of Control. Conflicts are also occurring in areas like Punch, Baramulla, Nowshera, Kupwara, Uri and RS Pura.
Army Chief Ley
Army Chief of Staff General MM Naravan reached Jammu and Kashmir to assess the situation on the border after the India-China conflict intensified. The army chief visited the Leh-based 14th Corps headquarters, which is in charge of security of the powerful Ladakh region. More troops have been dispatched to areas like Galvan Valley and Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh.
