China deployes more than 50 thousand soldiers on LAC, Indian Army is keeping a close watch

New Delhi, ANI. China has again started cowardly acts on the Line of Actual Control. The Chinese Army is using drones extensively after deploying more than 50,000 troops in its territory along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, which are flying close to Indian posts there. Official sources told news agency ANI that the drone activities of the Chinese Army are mostly visible in Daulat Beg Oldi Sector, Gogra Heights and other places in the region. The Indian Army is keeping a close eye on these antics of China. 

Neighbouring country China has again become active on the border with India. After the encounter in Eastern Ladakh 17 months ago, once again China is building a bunker for its army near the border line. According to the intelligence report, China has made arrangements for living like new modular containers (temporary tents) at about 8 locations near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in front of eastern Ladakh.

According to a Times of India report, the People's Liberation Army has built shelters for soldiers from Wahab Jilga near the Karakoram Pass in the north to Piyu, Hot Springs, Chang La, Tashigong, Manja and Churup. From 80 to 84 containers have been made in seven clusters at each location.

Since the military confrontation between India and China in April-May last year, China has set up several camps. These new camps have been built in addition to the old existing camps. This clearly shows that China has no intention of withdrawing its army from the border for a long time. 

Both India and China have deployed 50-50 thousand soldiers on the borderline near Eastern Ladakh. They also have howitzers, tanks and surface-to-air missile systems. In the midst of this uncomfortable situation, troops from both sides continue to change regularly.

China has also built several airstrips and new helipads in the region, which extends from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh. Along with this, China has also upgraded its major airbases Hotan, Kashgar, Gargunsa, Lhasa-Gonggar and Shigatse here.

Indian army is also ready 

The Indian Army is also monitoring these antics of China by using various resources. Sources said that the Indian Army is very cautious. It is also deploying drones on a large scale. Soon it will induct new Israeli and Indian drones. These drones have been acquired by the defence forces using emergency financial powers to face the challenge of China on the border. 

China making permanent base 

Referring to the current situation on the LAC, sources said that now the issue of friction point needs to be resolved. Sources said that China is still not sitting silently; it is converting its temporary structures into permanent bases for its soldiers. China has set up military camps near Tibetan villages in areas near the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh.

Construction of concrete buildings 

It is worth noting that these camps are being built by the Chinese army in the form of concrete buildings. Sources clearly say that these actions of China are showing its intention directly. China wants to maintain the deployment of its troops for a long time.

Started work in your area

Sources gave more serious information. He told that even after the violent clashes in the Galvan Valley, China had started work in its area only last year. Sources said that the construction work is still going on at many places from the Chinese side to meet the winter requirements.

Troops not fully recalled   

The surprising thing is that even though China has withdrawn its troops from some areas of tension, it has not completely withdrawn any of its military troops deployed from its territory on the border since April 2020. At present, the Chinese army is working on the agenda of long-term deployment of its troops near the Indian border.

What is China's intention? 

How dangerous is the intention of China can be gauged from the fact that the Chinese army is investing heavily in the construction of military bases in the villages of Tibet near the Indian border? Sources say that China is building these facilities so that its army can be used as a defence line. Not only this, but China also intends to recruit its army for deployment in these facilities. China is attracting youth from these mountainous regions to accelerate its agenda.
