“Neither an Indian has crossed the frontier, nor any Indian post is in the possession of someone.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘s comment has shocked the dragon. PM Modi addressed the nation on Friday about the boundary conflict between India and China and abuse in the Galvan Valley.
Since then, China has hardened the Galvan valley. China has also unexpectedly issued a lengthy statement on Saturday in an attempt to blame India. In a statement issued Saturday morning, China again strongly asserted its claim to the whole Galvan Valley. Not just this, but India has lately been largely blamed for the conflict at the eastern Ladakh frontier.
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao has released his statement on social media. The Chinese spokesman has tried to show that India has accepted its mistake and is backing its troops. Contrary to Chinese claims, the fact is that Indian forces have increased deployment along China’s border at forwarding fronts.
The Prime Minister has made it clear in his statement on Friday that the army has been given full leeway to take decisions. On Friday itself, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria also visited Leh to take stock of the preparations.
The Chinese spokesman has written making false claims that the Galvan Valley is located on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control. For many years, the Chinese Military patrols here.
Arbitrarily from April, the Indian Border Military Forces started constructing highways, bridges, and other facilities there. China has opposed this on several occasions, but India, ignoring this, tried to provoke China by doing construction work ahead of the LAC.
On May 6, 2020, Indian military forces crossed the LAC. Entered the territory of China and started building barricades etc. The Indian military forces deliberately changed the status quo and attempted to spoil the border control and management system. On its part, China took steps given the situation.
Military and diplomatic level talks between India and China also started to remove tension. In response to the strong Chinese demand, India agreed to withdraw its team from the LAC and was ready to break all the structures built.
Contrary to the claims of the Chinese spokesman, the truth is that the Chinese Army has been violating the Border Protocol in East Ladakh for the last one and a half months. Chinese forces are not only continuously patrolling the restricted area, but also made their temporary posts by putting up tents.
This is not the first attempt by the dragon to seize Indian land. China is often making such efforts in Doklam and sometimes on other borders with India.
