KOLKATA: With ships of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) snooping around the Andaman islands on routine basis, the ministry of defence is contemplating deploying more assets in the island chain in the days to come.
According to sources, the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) - the country's only strategic command comprising the Army, Navy and Air Force - have detected Chinese naval ships very close to India's territorial waters in the recent past. A report states that PLAN ships attempt to get close at least twice every three months.
"They have been detected on every occasion and we have made it very clear to the Chinese that we are monitoring their movement. Though we have detection capabilities in the Andamans, we don't have assets that can work as a deterrent. Only landing craft and some patrol vessels of the Indian Navy are deployed in the islands. This is inadequate. There are no weapons platforms. There aren't any missiles on the islands that can be used against incoming ships or aircraft. This has to change," a senior officer from Delhi said.
China have greedy eyes on Indian land. just trying 2 make do wid whatever they have, bro. Also India should start visiting Tibet area.....
Where was the.money n resources, u want to.bankrupt India. THIS IS STAND THAT THE GOVERNMENT MUST TAKE FOR THE SECURITY AND DEFENCE OF THE COUNTRY. MoreOver Wot was d issue as if they were still inn d International waters? Indian ships also patrol d South China Sea. As long as they don't threaten us, we should not promote war that India shouldn't win......
India should make Andaman a full fledged naval base with a full regiment of naval vessels stationed there at all times. Eventually, an aircraft carrier should also be added to the fleet.
What kind of non sense narrative is this. Are we on some state of war with China. If they are close to andaban but still in international waters, that's absolutely fine. If they are entering inside , which is surely not the case, this is unacceptable and can be solved by communication. We dont need these western expert analysis based on a assumption of permanent conflict at any cost between India and China. Using indian media for the same regularly. Between American navy is all over the world.

We are to blame ourselves for choosing wrong leaders in the past.

If we want to live with dignity, honor, peace, harmony & transquality, then we should be well prepared at all the time, for a WAR ! Perhaps! that is the only language understood by the potential enemies around the country.
Give it in lease to US. Chinese will not bother us
Indian defense preparedness against Chinese aggression has to be on top priority, China cannot be trusted even in dreams. At present, the Chinese economy is on a liquid diet and it's high time for India to take advantage of it. Even otherwise, India must stop accepting any imports from China to keep them on their Toe. Pakistan is just a puppet, once China is brought under control, automatically, Pakistan will control itself.
India will have to work very hard to combat Chinese . They are real menace to India
China is deeply in financial crisis, its trying to divert attention.
what was government of doing so many day only focusing on Pakistan China country believe in expansion. I hope India focus on China.
While India has to be alert viz-a-viz China, we also need to be wary of US designs to get India n China into a war.
after Modi's visit to China everything got worst, what a man Modi is, one of the best PM of India,
PEOPLE SHOULD STOP BUYING CHINESE PRODUCTS. BUT I CAN PROUDLY TELL. WE WON'T DO THAT. BECAUSE WE ARE INDIANS....I.
Chinese have more enemies than friends.....Economy also started crumbling....How long they can supply Toys to Pakistan?
