President Xi Jinping’s action on the night of August 29-30 at the deadlocked site in the Pangong So area on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh has not gone down. Xi Jinping is reportedly said to be angry with the Indian Army’s action on the border. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is also not happy with the Indian Army’s action on the LAC.
Earlier, on June 15, Chinese President Xi Jinping had his 67th birthday. Even then, on the night of 15 June, the army of India and China clashed in the Galvan valley. The Chinese army suffered heavy losses in this, although China never accepted it and no figures were revealed. The impact of the loss to the Chinese army on the occasion of birthday was clearly seen on Jinping’s face.
Indeed, on the night of 29–30 August, Chinese troops tried to re-enter the standoff site in Pangong So area in eastern Ladakh, but were repulsed by the already prepared Indian jawans. Regarding the Pangons So area, the Indian Army said China’s PLA’s “provocative” military operation to change the status quo on the intervening night of August 29 and 30 was thwarted.
Army spokesman Colonel Aman Anand had said that China’s ‘People’s Liberation Army’ violated the previous consensus reached through military and diplomatic talks on the East Ladakh deadlock and launched a provocative military campaign to change the status quo.
Some media reports have alleged that the People’s Liberation Army commander retreated to avoid physical conflict in Spangur. Because of which the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party is angry. However, the media said that there is no concrete evidence yet. Even the action taken by the Indian Army on the Chinese social media platform about the ongoing tension on the border seems angry.
At the same time, China has refused to give any information about the abduction of 5 Indian citizens by the PLA. The Chinese Foreign Ministry once again denied Arunachal Pradesh as its own without refuting these allegations. A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that it is part of China’s South Tibet.
