India reeling as 5000 more Chinese troops deployed on Ladakh, Sikkim borders
BEIJING: India’s dreams of enjoying a wider influence in the region are looking increasingly wishful as China s blunt response to the attempt to change Ladakh’s territory status and the deployment of 5,000 more troops on the Ladakh and Sikkim borders has left Delhi shell-shocked.
The ongoing conflict between China and India is continuing to escalate as China has sent another 5,000 troops to the Ladakh and Sikkim disputed areas. China has said India has tried to unilaterally change the status of the disputed territory.
The Indian army that openly oppresses the unarmed Kashmiris has suddenly become a deer caught in headlights. The continued increase in pressure by Chinese troops on the border of Sikkim and Ladakh has left the Modi government and its Army with few options.
Other than increasing number of Chinese troops on the border, it has been reported that the Chinese military is also building underground bunkers and eight hundred Chinese army tents have been spotted around the Galwan Valley.
China says India is constructing illegal defense-related structures near the Galwan Valley and reportedly, the Chinese army captured a group of Indian army personnel but later released them.
China has said that India violated the Line of Control in Sikkim and Ladakh and more importantly, India has tried to unilaterally change the status of the disputed area.
Indian media has released pictures in which it can be seen that the Chinese Army now occupies areas previously controlled by India. The recent tensions began on May 5, when Indian and Chinese troops came face to face on the eastern Ladakh border.
Meanwhile, India s border dispute with Nepal is also worsening as the Prime Minister of Nepal has released a new map in which the areas of Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh have been declared as part of Nepal.
