'Road construction by Beijing in Doklam will be a long-term trend,' says Chinese media
NEW DELHI: A Chinese Communist Party run publication said today that Beijing will continue to build roads and other infrastructure in Doklam, the site of a recent face-off with India.
The op-ed in China's Global Times was referring to reports late last week that China's People's Liberation Army has started constructing a road in the Chumbi valley, about 10km from the site of the recent India-China face-off.
The op-ed further said that any Indian reaction to such construction is "eccentric" and that Indian society is "paranoid" as well as "sensitive and arrogant".
"Doklam is Chinese territory and under effective control and supervision of the Chinese government. During the Doklam face-off , Beijing intensified efforts to develop infrastructure in the region and road construction there will be a long-term trend," said the Global Times op-ed

Barking dogeaters as usual, Indian news media keeps reporting the CCP propaganda meant for domestic consumption. Let them build a road as long as it isn;t in disputed territory.

We have a strong Military and brave soldiers.. Make it much stronger with modern weapons, war ships, missiles and fighter jets through Make in India project. It will create a lot of jobs and provide scope for further research and innovation. A strong military brings ''peace through strength''.

China mouth piece giving Indias face value. India has to focus on its own infrastructure and let China do what they want in their terrority. If China mess around, India knows how to mess around too.

But the truth is otherwise. Indians always want peace in the world. We never fought war with other countries, but defended our country when enemies attacked.
