India said – our soldiers work within their limits, the actions of neighbors hinders our surveillance. India-China soldiers clashed 3 times in this month.
China has deployed about 5,000 personnel in several sectors near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. After this step of the neighbor, the Indian Army has also started increasing its troops in these areas. In the same month, the two armies have clashed three times at different places. Last week, the commanders of the armies of both countries have negotiated and tried to resolve the issue.
Both armies settled near Galvan drain
Sources told news agency ANI that China has deployed its troops near Daulat Beg Oldi and its adjoining areas near LAC, where the Indian Army’s 81 and 114 brigades are stationed.
The Chinese army has brought its troops near Pangong Lake, located near the LAC. Along with this, she has also brought heavy vehicles here. About 15 km from Indian Post KM 120 in Galvan Nala Area, Chinese soldiers have put up their tents. China is also bringing heavy equipment to build bunkers in Galvan.
The Indian border has also expressed reservations about building such infrastructure, but the Chinese military is constantly engaged in work.
In this area, the Indian Army is building a bridge near Petroling Post 14. This was opposed by the Chinese army.
At any time on post-KM 120 there are 250 army and ITBP personnel. But, India is now sending more troops and equipment here. In the Eastern Ladakh sector, India is using the airfield at Daulatbeg Oldi to send troops to East Ladakh.
The old proposal to build an airfield near the Indian road at Daulat Beg Oldi is also being reconsidered. This area is important in the sense that the Chinese Army cannot monitor India’s aerial movement here.
Controversy in India and China in the Galvan River region of Ladakh
On May 9, there were skirmishes between the troops of India and China in eastern Ladakh and on May 9 in the Naku La sector of Sikkim.
Clashes broke out between the troops of India and China in eastern Ladakh. After this, on May 9, soldiers of both countries came face to face in the Naku La sector of Sikkim.
Controversy in India and China in the Galvan River region of Ladakh recently increased. Now the field commanders of both countries have met to resolve this. According to sources, the meeting took place in the Daulat Beg Oldi sector. This included officers from the 81 Brigade of India and their Chinese counterparts. There has been tension between the two sides in the Galvan River area for the last two weeks over the construction work.
Security forces had been monitoring satellite images and intelligence for the last two years. This showed them that China was building a road close to Indian territory on LAC. After this, India too started building a road network in its area near LAC. After this, China objected to the movement of Indian aircraft in the region.
However, on the contrary, Chinese helicopters have flown to the Indian Patrol Area in the Galvan River region. The situation became tense here last Monday.
Where, when, and how did clashes happen this month?
1) Date – 5th May, Place- Pangong Lake in East Ladakh
In the evening of that day, about 200 Indo-Chinese soldiers turned face-to-face in the Finger-5 area on the northern shore of this lake. India objected to the presence of Chinese soldiers. Conflict conditions persisted throughout the night. The next day, there was a skirmish between the soldiers on both sides. Later, the matter was resolved after talks between top officials on both sides.
2) Date – possibly May 9, place – Naku La Sector present in North Sikkim at an altitude of 16 thousand feet.
Here, 150 soldiers of India and China were face to face. Its date has not been officially revealed. However, according to a report by The Hindu, the clash occurred here only on 9 May. During the patrol, the soldiers, face to face, attacked each other with punches. 10 soldiers were injured in this clash. Officers later intervened here too. Then the clash stopped.
3) Date – probably May 9, place – Ladakh
The day China-India troops clashed in North Sikkim, China sent its helicopters to the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. Chinese helicopters did not cross the border, but in response, India sent a fleet of its Sukhoi 30 MKI fighter plane from Leh airbase and the rest of the fighter aircraft. According to media reports, this was the first time in recent years that in response to such action by China, India sent its fighter aircraft to the border.
Another Conflict in China
The last British governor of Hong Kong called it ‘a major attack on the autonomy of the city’
Chinese media has said that the move is defending national security
China is going to introduce a new security-related law,
So that it can ban activities like treason, terrorism, foreign intervention, and protest in Hong Kong. It is believed that the IK law may be widely opposed internationally and in Hong Kong.
Demonstrations were held for several months by supporters of democracy in Hong Kong last year.
The issue is going to be debated in the Parliament session starting on Friday. The session is delayed due to Corona. Chinese media has said that the move is defending national security. However, detractors say that this could be the ‘end of Hong Kong’.
Hong Kong’s last British governor Chris Patten called the move a ‘major attack on the city’s autonomy’. At the same time, Tanya Chan, the leader of Hong Kong’s Civic Party, called it ‘the saddest day in the country’s history’. Following this announcement, the Hong Kong dollar also declined on Thursday.
‘China plans to amend one country two system policy’
National People’s Congress spokeswoman Zhang Sui said that China is planning to amend the policy of one country two systems. National security is the basis of the stability of the country. Protecting national security protects the fundamental interests of Hong Kong’s compatriots, including the people of China.
China has always had the authority to make laws
China always had the authority to implement the National Security Act in Hong Kong’s original law, but has so far avoided doing so. Elections are scheduled in Hong Kong in September. Just like last year, the supporters of democracy got success, if the district elections were also successful, then the government may have trouble in bringing the bill.
