1 year after Do-m, China intrudes 400m into Ladakh
NEW DELHI: China continues to needle India at different stretches along the 4,057-km Line of Actual Control (LAC), with People’s Liberation Army troops intruding around 300-400 metres inside the Demchok sector of eastern Ladakh and pitching five tents there in the latest such incident last month.
Security establishment sources on Monday said the PLA subsequently removed three of their tents in the Cherdong-Nerlong Nallan area after brigadier-level talks between the two armies, but the remaining two tents with “some Chinese troops in civvies” are still present in the area. The Army, on being contacted, refused to say anything about the incident.
Sources said the PLA soldiers, in the garb of nomads with cattle in tow, had intruded into Indian territory in the first week of July and did not retreat despite Indian troops repeatedly conducting “banner drills” (showing flags to ask them to go back to their own territory) in accordance with laid down protocol to diffuse faceoffs along the LAC.
“The PLA removed three of the tents only after India pushed for talks between the rival brigade commanders,” said a source, adding that the Chinese troops apparently complained against the Ladakh administration’s attempt to construct a path in the Nerlong area.
Demchok is one of the 23 “disputed and sensitive areas” identified on the LAC, stretching from eastern Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh, which witnesses frequent “transgressions and troop faceoffs” between the two armies due to “differing perceptions” of the unresolved boundary. The other disputed areas in Ladakh include Trig Heights, Dumchele, Chumar, Spanggur Gap and Pangong Tso.
The number of transgressions, which is military euphemism for incursions, by Chinese troops along the LAC has crossed 170 this year. If 273 transgressions were recorded in 2016, the number touched 426 last year in wake of the 73-day troop face-off at the Bhutanese territory of Do-m near the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tib tri-junction.
boycott Chinese goods.
Modi ji''s jumela strike being taken for ride by China ? This gujju cant do shyt pther than running his mouth or helping his chor friends to steal more.
hurt them economically
The best way is to hit their economy. China's cellphone industry already has got a jolt by Make in India programme.
Dear Indian Military...you need to handle this issue on your own but with strong hand. Because Modiji has already surrendered. Proof: Govt already accepted Taiwan as Chinese land.
China and snakes can't be trusted
Tomorrow our BJP go nment will give statement that there is no problem at Do-m.
NO PROBLEM LET THEM CAPTURE DOKLAM, BUT HERE MORE IMPORTANT TO WIN ELECTION OVER HINDU MUSLIMS HATE POLCITIS , FEKU AND TADIPAR CURSED FOR INDIA
Hug policy not working
Bhupinder Pal Pal
I find the argument of stopping imports from China very absurt.
China is world biggest manufacturer of cinsumables and electronics. Most of American, Canada & UK etc stores & malls are filled with Chinese products.
There is no other contry which manufactures at that scale & prices. If you stop importing from China then from where will you source items if your need, if official imports are stopped somehow then smuggling will start causing further tax revenue loss.
Moreover, India''s own industry will see consequence''s ad most if the bulk of semifinished goods for Indian factories bare sourced from China.
It is an excellent rhetoric to stop importing from China but is it practical ?
China is learning the dirty tricks of pakistan fast.it is using regular soldiers dressed as nomads.This is dangerous.
Get out of World Trade Agreement and start charging tariffs on Chinese goods till our Industry can grow
Now we have a high growth oriented economy and a Governent with pragmatic approach. All we need is the will of existing and probable enterpreneus to make it happen.
The sum total of ModiÃ¢ s foreign policy seems to consist of frequent foreign visits by him and his hugging the foreign dignitaries, whether they like it or not. It is completely devoid of substance and has failed miserably even in our immediate neighbourhood, where China is trampling all over interests.
If Do-m was such a great victory by India over China, as claimed and believed by Indians, why is China still not afraid of mighty India now? Something is wrong
India needs to adopt an aggressive posture vis a vis the Chinese all along the LAC. Indian troops must also reciprocate Chinese tactics by intruding similar distance into China. It may not push the Chinese back but certainly drive home the point that any such incursion by Chinese troops into Indian territory will invite Indian response that the Chinese may not like.
modi uncle every country backstabs India since 2014..kindly step down and start tea business
India is not same as 1963 period. India will retaliate and can take back Tib. We have strong army n technology in terms of defense. And I am sure even Russia and USA and other fareast Asian country will join to combat and get China to knees. Even USA and European country will impose embargo to weaken China strength. This is reality. Nothing to afraid. We should have strong Prime Minister who can take India to be super power.
The fun is mutual . India needles China and vice versa along Bhutan and Nepal borders. Soldiers of both sides have to be tough and alert for their respective countries. Soldiers are not meant for bollywood or Chinese movie based " love , peace and smoothie cooing". Have fun fellas( both sides) for you can let your standards or guard down. India - China border has always been tense yet more peaceful and disciplined than other borders all over the world. India and China are ageless( historical) and mature civilizations which predate biblical and Islamic times in culture.
drops of water makes ocean. China had already attached 250 square km on 1962 war. what is defense minister doing?
So why do we follow different policies with Pak and China ? When it comes to Pak we speak about retaliation and giving befitting reply and even covert operation. But with China, we hold flag drills. We blames the congress of not doing anything, but what changes have we seen in the past four years expect hug politics.
A day under the Modi rule will come when everyone will see that neither of our neighbours will even think of messing with India, the morons here criticising Modi in the comments themselves are good for nothing, you morons what have you done for the country
I'm pretty sure that india can not stand a war with Mighty China for more than 3 minutes.
Now, it's getting clear that India not only had failed in Do-m, in other areas too China continued to intrude and till today doing the same.
Mr. Modi come clean and state the factual position in Do-m issue. It looks you are hiding some hard realities to avoid wrath of Indian common man.
India should at least make guns.
china can never be trusted we should be very careful
A day will come when China will dispute the existence of India itself thanks to our go nments lame duck attitude vis a vis chinese transgressions and one day China will again humiliate India big time which will make 1962 war pale in comparison...Its make my blood boil on reading such news repeatedly with no mention of indian troops having taken decisive or coerce action. As usuall indian go nment is always on denial and chinese meanwhile are happily nibbling away our terrritory on daily basis...!!
