Satellite images show Chinese structures present on both sides of LAC. China’s repeated incursions into Indian land which is a complete disregard of all “mutually agreed norms”, the foreign mininsrty said today.
While China claims that India is to be blamed for last weeks face-off in Galwan Valley leading to deaths of our 20 Army men.
Since early May China is building his army forces across the LAC lines.
In its statement, the foreign ministry said: ”Unfortunately, we’ve experienced within the last a few years obstruction to patrolling that always accompany efforts to unilaterally change the established order … The deployment of huge body of troops and changes in behavior has also been aggravated by unjustified and untenable claims. The recent shift within the Chinese position on the Galwan Valley is one example.”
”While there are occasional departures within the past, the conduct of Chinese forces this year has been in complete disregard of all mutually agreed norms… ”The Indian side has never undertaken any actions across the LAC and has never attempted to unilaterally change the established order ,” the ministry said during a very strong statement today.
“At the guts of the matter is that since early May, the Chinese side has been amassing an outsized contingent of troops and armaments along the LAC. this is often not in accordance with the provisions of our various bilateral agreements, especially the key 1993 Agreement… While there are occasional departures within the past, the conduct of Chinese forces this year has been in complete disregard of all mutually agreed norms,” the statement read.
High resolution satellite images from the Galwan river valley obtained by NDTV appear to point out the presence of Chinese structures on each side of the road of Actual Control. the pictures were obtained after India and China agreed to start out the method of disengagement along the road of Actual Control in Ladakh. the situation is near Patrol Point 14, where 20 Indian soldiers were killed in action and quite 70 were injured on June 15.
On Patrolling Point 15, the Chinese have put up large tents and are camping for nearly a month. At patrolling point 17, large troop mobilisation has been done from each side . On Pangong Lake, Chinese troops have moved upto “Finger 4” — the name given to at least one of the eight cliffs jutting out of the Sirijap range — and had brought over 120 vehicles and dozen boats.
Since April, Chinese intrusions were reported within the Fingers region on the banks of the Pangong Lake, the recent Springs area (near the Army’s post at Gogra), the Galwan Valley, and therefore the Depsang Plains further to the north. After the June 15 clash, secretary of state S Jaishankar, in his talks together with his Chinese counterpart, had suggested that China has got to “reassess its actions and take corrective steps”.
Army sources refused to discuss a report of a Chinese incursion within the Depsang plains region published within the Indian Express today. The intrusion is seen as another attempt by the Chinese to shift the LAC further west on the disputed boundary, on the brink of the new airstrip of Daulat Beg Oldie that’s crucial to India.
India has decided to extend its strength along 3,488-km of Line of Actual Control. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police is additionally shoring its posts with men and material. it’s been decided to put a corporation rather than a platoon to help the military in the least patrolling points. There are 30 jawans normally during a platoon, while a corporation has around 100 jawans.
At an all-party meeting on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said “neither is anyone inside our territory nor are any of our posts captured” — a comment that triggered controversy. The Congress repeatedly alleged that the Prime Minister has surrendered Indian Territory to the Chinese.
Alleging “mischievous interpretation of his words”, the govt said PM Modi’s observations “pertained to things as a consequence of the bravery of our armed forces”. The sacrifice of the soldiers foiled the Chinese attempts “to erect structures and also cleared the attempted transgression at now of the LAC thereon day… what’s Indian territory is obvious from the map of India. This government is strongly and resolutely committed thereto ,” the govt said.
