Military confrontation in eastern Ladakh continues, though India & China reduce some troops in 'depth areas'
NEW DELHI: India and China have progressively removed some troops from the “depth areas” along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh due to the harsh winter, but there has been no de-induction of soldiers ranged against each other in an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation on the frontlines.
China has de-inducted around 10,000 soldiers from their “traditional training areas” around 150 to 200-km from the LAC, with India following suit with “a mirror reduction” from its depth areas, said defence ministry sources on Monday.
But the operational situation remains as grim as ever on the front in Pangong Tso, Chushul, Gogra-Hotsprings and Depsang Plains despite freezing conditions, with temperatures even dip to -30 degree Celsius at some heights, and oxygen deprivation in the high-altitude area.
Chief of Defence Staff General Bi Rawat and IAF chief Air Chief Marshal R K S Bhadauria, in fact, visited eastern Ladakh on Monday to take stock of the “operational readiness”
Trust a snake but never China
Reason is winter, country should bevready for any eventuality on summer.
If they have moved back really then they will come back once again.. Indian troops should be more vigilant now onwards..
Come to the point. When is Modi going to get back captured Indian territories of galwan, hot springs, pangong from china.
It's clearly mentioned soldier reduction only in depth areas but no reduction of soldiers in front line at -30 c. But godi media celebrating that pla can't tolerate harsh winter.
Our Chinese friendly go nment is giving them contract after contract, Chinese are not so bad after all they are making good roads for Indian people ,nearly all manufacturers are still using Chinese products...Only drama in media but the facts are quite different, maybe ban few apps to keep public happy.
Chinese soldiers stray across the border but Indian soldiers don't? Either amazing or strange!
Common Man With Common Sense
these VIRUS are selfish, cruel and inhumane value, don't believe them
Military confrontation in eastern ladakh continue
May be due to harsh winter with intention to return in summer; India must not believe China as they are more dangerous than poisonous snakes
India does not have borders with China.
If china has anything in mind of summer war, it will be crushed far badly with high casualty. India has strategic advantage accross LAC
THE DEFINITION OF CHEAT IS CHINESE. THRY HAVE MANY MANY CHEATING TRICKS UP IN THRIR SLEEVE... NEVER RVER LOWER OUR GUARD
This time China has been well nailed.
The deceitful aggressor is playing what it knows best-deception. We should not lower our guards as due to extensive infrastructure it can deploy forces and machinery with no time while for us it will take time.

During the cold season the Chinese have an upper hand over the Indians. We have to be very vigilant. They can withdraw and come back soon just like an virus. We cannot trust China and USA. Both are ever cunning countries
They are not trustworthy and might be redeploying somewhere.
K Mohan Twincities
But India should be ever ready against China's hidden ugly designs against India
Brahmin Converted To Christian
don't mess up with china......its officially an atheist country unlike Lord (D)Rama indians ... Chinese believe in themselves without caste, religion and regionalism unlike this 3rd world country india...
Grit, perseverance and bravery of our Soldiers, will ensure that the Chinese troops move back from the border areas....PLA is no match for the Indian Soldiers.....
