The Indian government has rejected the Chinese claim of firing by the Indian Army on the southern bank of Lake Pangong in eastern Ladakh. China is blaming the Indian Army by firing the LAC itself. But India has once again removed the veil from the lies of sugar. India has issued a statement saying that the PLA soldiers have taken provocation action. India has categorically stated that the Indian Army has not fired nor crossed the LAC i.e. the Line of Actual Control. In some places, the People’s Liberation Army has fired.
Indeed, on Monday night, the Chinese Army claimed that the Indian Army opened fire on the southern bank of Pangong Lake, violating the Line of Actual Control. In response to this, on Tuesday, the Indian Army said that the army of the dragon himself fired and is blaming us. India said that China is continuously violating the agreement and adopting an aggressive attitude. While negotiations continue between the two countries at the military, diplomatic and political levels.
China takes action on LAC: Indian Army
According to the statement, ‘On 07 September 2020, Chinese troops tried to get close to one of our forward positions with LAC and when their own troops stopped them, Chinese troops did some aerial firing to provoke their own troops. Even after such provocation, Indian soldiers showed great restraint and showed their mature behavior.
The statement further said that the Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace and tranquility, although it is also committed to protecting national integrity and sovereignty at all costs. The statement of the Indian Army said that the statement issued by the Western Theater Command of China was to mislead their own people and the international community.
PLA aggression again over border, tense situation, negotiations continue
The Twitter handle of the Chinese government newspaper ‘Global Times’ quoted a Western Theater Command spokesperson as saying, “The Indian Army once again illegally illegally attacked the LAC on Monday near the southern bank of Pangong Lake in the hills of Shenpao.” Violated.” A second Global Times tweet quoted the spokesperson as saying, “Chinese troops were forced to retaliate to stabilize the situation after the Indian troops opened a warning firing on the PLA’s Border Patrol troops.”
Indeed, China has made this claim at a time when the foreign ministers of the two countries are scheduled to meet on 10 September at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) foreign ministers’ meeting in Moscow. A day before leaving for this meeting, on Monday, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said that India-China relations are directly affected by the unrest on the borders. During an interview, he made it clear that relations between the two countries cannot be seen as separate from the border dispute.
China claims Indian army crosses LAC and fires patrol
Significantly, the tension along the Line of Actual Control in East Ladakh has been there for the last few months. On the night of 29 and 30 August, Indian troops not only stopped the Chinese army trying to capture the mountain peaks on the LAC but also took positions on the peaks on the southern side of Pangong Lake. The shape of the Pangong Lake area is such that whatever army occupies the peaks of these mountains near the southern shore, it will get an edge over the whole area.
On the night of 15–16 June this year, the dragon soldiers on the LAC attempted to change the status quo and suddenly attacked Indian soldiers in the Galvan Valley with barbed wire in an iron rod. Due to this nefarious act of Chinese army, 20 soldiers of India were martyred. The Indian Army gave a befitting reply to this, in retaliation, 43 Chinese soldiers were killed. China had admitted that its soldiers were also casualties but it never confirmed the number. Since then there has been a state of tension on the LAC.
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.
India has always been in favor of peace and instead of going to war against any country, this country has given priority to find a solution through peace talks. Relations between China and India have deteriorated over the past several months over the border dispute and the escalation between troops of the two countries in eastern Ladakh continues. But even in the meantime, the soldiers of the Indian Army did not forget peace, harmony and humanity, and were seen showing the picture of humanity even after bad relations with China. Even after the ongoing deadlock at the border, the Indian Army personnel did not back down from helping the civilians engulfed in North Sikkim by observing the disaster and pursuing human religion.
In fact, three Chinese citizens lost their way at an altitude of about 17,500 feet in the plateau region of North Sikkim. Amid the shivering cold and the agony of wandering from the path, the Indian soldiers not only helped him, but also safely brought him out of the disaster. These three Chinese citizens also included women.
According to the news agency, the army said that on September 3, these three Chinese civilians had lost their way at an altitude of 17,500 feet in the plateau areas of North Sikkim. Seeing their problems, the soldiers of the Indian Army provided medical aid, oxygen, food and warm clothes to save them. Not only this, the army showed them the proper way to guide them and guide them.
This help of the Indian Army is also important because even though they are at loggerheads with the Chinese Army on the border, it is their ultimate duty to follow human religion. Recall that there was a violent clash between the soldiers of China and India on June 15, in which 20 soldiers including a colonel of India were killed. A large number of Chinese soldiers were also killed, although China never officially announced it.
The situation on the border in eastern Ladakh is tense. After the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) was heavily armed, the Indian Army is also ready to give a befitting reply, since which the situation has remained tense. India has also increased its deployment of troops and weapons against China after it foiled a Chinese infiltration attempt in the Pangong Tso Lake area on the night of 29-30 August. People familiar with the matter gave this information.
A senior military official said that the Chinese army is in a completely aggressive mode to force the Indian Army or, to say, to break the morale of the army, and the Chinese army is also showing heavy weapons, making the situation in Chushul region very tense. is. However, the Indian Army has also kept up to par with its weapons and has shown its aggressive stance to China at points both south of Pangong Tso and Rejang La by a special frontier force campaign.
In this way, if we look at the situation so far, both the forces are showing strength with weapons. The Indian Army is present with full force to counter any Chinese invasion along the 1597 km long Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh and thwart its infiltration attempts.
The Indian counter-offensive against the Chinese chest has ensured that Indian troops now dominate high-altitude areas along the Pangong Tso Lake near the LAC and have taken control of these areas. Not only this, now the Indian Army is sitting here and monitoring the Chinese activities. The high area of the skirmish is in the Indian territory across the LAC, but China claims it to be on its part. Sources said that a Special Operation Battalion was recently dispatched to the area. On the intervening night of 29-30 August, this battalion took over the highlands from China, where the Chinese troops were just a few hundred meters away.
Another senior military commander said that the situation was grim and the possibility of escalating tensions could not be ruled out as the Chinese Army was struggling to repel the Indian Army under Beijing’s directive. At the moment, tensions between the two countries do not seem to be diminishing.
If Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi have a ministerial meeting on behalf of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Moscow, there seems to be an expectation of peace talks. Any further action by the Lekir PLA will put an end to this diplomatic initiative.
Earlier, Indian army spokesman Colonel Aman Anand told Somar that the Chinese army had made provocative military activity unilaterally on the intervening night of August 29 and 30 to change the status quo on the south bank of Pangong Tso, but Indian troops failed the attempt gave. The source said that the army has strengthened the deployment of troops and weapons at all strategic points located in the Pangong So area. Sources said that a large number of Chinese troops were marching towards the southern bank of Pangong lake which was intended to encroach on the said area but the Indian Army made a significant deployment to thwart the effort.
A violent skirmish took place between the two countries for the first time in the Galvan Valley on June 15, in which 20 Indian soldiers were martyred. China did not provide any information about its casualties, but according to the US intelligence report, 35 of its soldiers were killed. India and China have held seventy-five military and diplomatic talks in the last two and a half months but no concrete solution has been found on the East Ladakh case.
The deadlock between India and China is not being named. On the night of 29 and 30 August, Chinese troops tried to re-enter the deadlocked site in eastern Ladakh, but were repelled by the already prepared Indian jawans. However, according to some media reports, during this time there is also talk of skirmish between the soldiers of both the countries.
Army PRO Colonel Aman Anand said Indian troops had already sensed Chinese troops’ activity on the southern shore of Pangong Tso Lake and foiled infiltration attempts. He also said that the army personnel took action to thwart the Chinese intentions to strengthen the Indian post and unilaterally change the facts on the ground.
The PRO stated that the Indian Army is committed to maintaining peace through dialogue, but is equally determined to protect its territorial integrity. A brigade commander level flag meeting is going on in Chushul to resolve the issues. The army said the PLA violated the previous consent made after the military and diplomatic standoff during the ongoing standoff in eastern Ladakh. This comes at a time when talks with China to reduce border tension in eastern Ladakh are stuck in stalemate.
During recent diplomatic negotiations between India and China, it was not agreed to bridge their differences over the ceasefire and de-escalation process along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). India stressed the need to resolve issues expeditiously.
Meetings and discussions are being held continuously in India
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh recently discussed the deadlock along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh with the NSA and three service chiefs. China has also made heavy deployments to coincide with China showing its presence in LAC. Several rounds of negotiations have also taken place between the two countries.
On June 15, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a bloody clash between the two sides. More than 40 Chinese soldiers were also killed during this period. China repeatedly talks about peace, but does not desist from its antics in deadlocked areas.
