Indian army has given a tough message to China by pushing its Army back and blocking 6 Chinese spy spots in Arunachal Pradesh. Indian Army caught 3 km of Chinese land too. Reportedly, in the first week of June in the Lalten post in the Doka La general area in Sikkim, China’s People’s Liberation Party destroyed Indian bunkers along the Sino-Indian border following a scuffle between Indian Army and Chinese troops in the remote areas of Sikkim.
The main reason of this intense dispute between the two countries is a road being built by China in Doklam, where it has a territorial dispute with Bhutan. China has also virtually accused India of having a “hidden agenda” hinting that India is trying to stop it from building the road on Bhutan’s behalf. On the other hand, Bhutan has lodged a formal protest asking China to stop work on the road.
A state run news paper of China has also said on Tuesday that China must force the Indian troops to retreat “by all necessary means” and New Delhi must be “taught the rules”.
Amid the standoff between Indian troops and Chinese army along the Sino-Indian border, Army Chief Bipin Rawat is visiting Sikkim today (29th June,2017).It is reported that he will interact with top commanders in the formation headquarters of the force in the state bordering China. He will also examine the operational matters over there.
During his two-day long visit, General Rawat is also expected to visit a number of other formation headquarters in the Northeast. Noticeably, approximate 220km of area falls in Sikkim out of the total 3,488-km-long India-China border that stretches from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh.
