外文标题：Indian soldiers prevent Chinese troops from constructing road in Arunachal
NEW DELHI: Arunachal Pradesh, much like eastern Ladakh, continues to be a major flashpoint between India and China, with Indian troops recently blocking attempts by the People's Liberation Army soldiers to once again construct a road in the Asaphila region.
While the Asaphila incident did not lead to a prolonged military face-off, unlike the serious ones at Chumar and Demchok in eastern Ladakh last month, it's an indication of the continuing shadow-boxing between the two countries all along the 4,057-km long Line of Actual Control.
Sources said the PLA's "heightened activity" was been witnessed in Asaphila region for some months now. "The PLA troops, with vehicles and other equipment, then tried to build a road till Point 2445. They were then stopped from doing so by our soldiers," said a source.
The last Indian military outpost in the region is at Taksing, which is on the eastern edge of Asaphila, while the PLA bases too are located 40-50-km away. "Soldiers from both sides undertake aggressive patrolling of 7-8 days' duration. Some lead to face-offs, which are quite common in the region," said the source.

Nip in the bud. It is the right time to check the infiltration on the borders. Winter is approaching very fast, chinese forcers will have upper-hand then. Our border forces should be extra cautious in Dec.- Jan on china borders and Sept-Oct. on Pakistn border. Indian armed forces are executing their duties undoubtedly. A big salute to jawans.

Army is emboldened as first time the govt of the country is holding their hands. Their moral is upbeat and they can take any challenge.
