China taking every advantage of the Government of India and its remote controlling RSS involvement in fabricating hate against Muslims on flimsy grounds to divert very attention of the public from the failures of the Narendra Modi Govt on Socio-Economic front, strengthening China’s stand.
India casually voices opposition to China building a second bridge across Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh, despite it is in an area that has been under ‘illegal occupation’ of that country for around 60 years.
At any given time form, 1947, India has never accepted such illegal occupation of its territory, nor has it accepted the ‘unjustified’ Chinese claim or such construction activities.
Satellite imagery suggested that China is constructing the second bridge in the strategically key region right next to the first one, amid a lingering border row in eastern Ladakh.
India have seen reports of a bridge being constructed by China on Pangong Lake alongside its earlier bridge. Both these bridges are in areas that have continued to be under the illegal occupation of China since the 1960s and the incapacitated Modi to deal with China gave up Indian territory and the nation demands a firm answer from RSS and its dancing doll PM Narendra Modi.
India have made it clear on several occasions that the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are an integral part of India, and India expect other countries to respect India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity
Now the government has stepped up the development of border infrastructure including the construction of roads and bridges in order to ensure that the nation’s security interests are fully protected in a casual manner which is insufficient to protect her sovereignty.
The government does not appear to have remained committed to the objective of creating infrastructure along the border areas to not only meet India’s strategic and security requirements but also does not properly facilitate the economic development of these areas.
And of course, and as formality the government keeps a constant watch on all developments that have a bearing on India’s security and takes all necessary measures to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity, this despite Indian armed forces are far superior to that of China and army commanders have raised their concern time and again but it is unfortunate that the Modi’s Government and National Security Agency lack true national spirt.
In January, when reports of China building the first bridge across the Pangong Tso emerged, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said it is located in an area that is under illegal occupation of China for 60 years, but never put its efforts to stop China from going ahead while China has been very successful to build villages and their terminus in a preplan to overcome Indian army. China completed the construction of the first bridge across Pangong Tso in April.
Narendra Modi demonstrating as a rich Sadu (Hindu Priest) and content with hate India concept to further weaken Indian internally, while the eastern Ladakh faceoff began on May 4-5 in 2020. India symbolically has been insisting on the restoration of status quo ante prior to the standoff.
India and China have held 15 rounds of military talks so far to resolve the eastern Ladakh row, but India knows pretty well that these exercises are in vain. However, as a result of the talks, the two sides demonstrated the disengagement process last year on the north and the south banks of the Pangong lake and in the Gogra area around -1 per cent.
India has been consistently maintaining that peace and tranquility along the LAC were key to overall development of bilateral ties. Each side currently has around 50,000 to 60,000 troops along the LAC in the sensitive sector. However, seeing the ongoing encroachments trends by China, next 10 years will be tougher for India, as Xi Jinping will maintain the posture at LAC till he gets a five-year extension.
In a well counter insurgency plan both Pakistan and China, keeping India busy in organising its troops, resulting in the “Fire and Fury Corps in Ladakh is responsible for guarding Kargil, the Siachen Glacier and Eastern Ladakh — facing.
The question is to man the LAC and why Indian troops will never get worn out of the prolonged border standoff by China, presuming that it will wear India down in hostile weather condition, incurring huge expense, which is an unfair presumption.
This is because of the fact Indian troops know that China may resort to new types of warfare day in day out and there is no adequate response from Indian Government while troops are ready to counter China’s ugly designs at the peril of their lives.
As any nation that studies its adversary knows, its strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities, the Chinese should know that Indians have fought long wars since Independence and have had a long history of dealing with insurgencies and terrorism and capable to drive away China from its China occupied territories.
It is believed by evry commoner, India will never capitulate or get worn out of the border standoff. It has not happened at the Line of Control, or in Kargil in western Ladakh which is as tough as areas of eastern Ladakh, despite the Pakistanis thought India would not be able to push them out of Kargil, but India undertook a very tough operation and won, because of the united spirit of communal harmony and mutual respects that Indian soldiers were taught, but Modi’s government is promoting unrest among all sections of Indian troops for its mismanagement. China has studied the 5,000-year inter caste conflicts and past culture of India, they would have come to the same conclusion.
Ever since Narendra Modi’s misrule, the Chinese have achieved what they wanted — put India under pressure without getting involved into a conventional war, at least for now.
This is however a tough year for President Xi who Jinping, is general secretary of the Chinese Communist party and chairman of China’s Central Military Commission. Next steps to be taken by China will be known only when the 20th Chinese Communist party conference, that is scheduled to be held later this year where he has to get re-elected for another five years.
It will be difficult for him to respond to the delegates if anything were to go wrong on China’s borders. Hence, this year President Xi will maintain the posture at the LAC till he gets a five-year extension to show case in 2027, to mark the 100th year of the raising of the People’s Liberation Army. In the process, the next five years are going to be tougher for India because India can expect heightened belligerence from China.
The advantageous China has its economic strength and Indian GDP is falling every day, have to push hard India to accelerate her infrastructure. Thus restraining India to be extremely careful in the next five years ahead, that will forecast her incapacity to face China, which will morally upward for China.
All solutions are basically political solutions, troops are being used to accomplish and execute respective State’s political ideology and the military translates the political diktat into operational parameters and doctrinal strategies.
To say that there is a military solution to the Line of Actual Control, Indian commoner has grave doubts. It has to be managed at a political level with acumen, statesmanship that depends on the settlement of the India-China border, which India under leadership of Narendra Modi and his mentor RSS utterly lack at least against China.
India have settled the tedious border with Bangladesh for the reasons that Bangladesh was a creator by Indian military maneuvering, though it is a weak nation to face India. However, it is a longer border than what India have with China, here too India have settled it with some give and take.
No Indian in present circumstances, think there can be any significant military solution to the Line of Actual Control in the long term. The Indian military being a most capable, will fight at the border and do their bit, but finally the solution has to come from the political-diplomatic level.
The remaining areas where disengagement is still pending more strategically crucial than those where disengagement has already taken place, the entire area has to be seen as a whole. All the areas where India are in a standoff lend themselves to Aksai Chin and vice versa, steadily to enable India’s movement across Aksai Chin and also denies the PLA into areas they patrolled earlier.
Disengagement in each area also requires a lot of deliberation, political-diplomatic engagements with global pressure. The process is tedious because the landscape itself is tedious. It is taking time because the area is very tough, while talks have been deadlocked around PP15 and Demchok, but the joint statement after the 14th round of talks gives hope.
India military vacated the Kailash Heights under the very guidance of the Government of India. Government of India failed to take its citizen into confidence while the masters in democracy the people have been kept confused on religious and faith divide and hate. The military followed a thought process and executed it in the form of salient operation that favored China strategically.
The military must have had taken the decision because it was necessary. The serving establishment discusses and debates each area painstakingly. The two armies were face to face with tanks and guns at 100 metres range. The situation was tense. There was a possibility of somebody losing control and the situation could have escalated to war. India had to also push the PLA back in the Pangong Tso area to prevent possibilities of clashes.
Each one of these areas, the plus and minuses, would have been discussed. Those who are outside the realm of that decision making must accept that whether there was any good logic behind it. The Kailash range is not the only area where Indian armed forces can obtain leverage. Though India have the capacity to obtain leverage in many other areas, India should look into these plans to accomplish to put India in a comfortable state. Let Modi Government reconcile this weak area.
It is advantageous for India as the culture of the Indian Armed Forces for last 70 years is such that Indian Army commanders are mostly on the ground and always demonstrated their best. It is necessary for each and every commander to visit all location under his command frequently and uplift the morale of his men by providing necessary logistics, tell them why India needs to be here, what is going to happen or what is the likelihoods of future confrontation with China.
Every Indian salutes every combatant for this reason as Indian troops are solid and India until 2014 maintained their morale because being at those tough, windy, cold, areas is not simple, but Modi failed to address one rank and one pension issue while written off lakhs of crores of rupees by compromising Indian economy, and by favoring the very thieves of Indian economy, from his State of Gujarat.
India needs to provide her solders not only hygienic food and habitat, permanent shelter to each soldiers’ family, but also reach out and listen to them.
India over a period of time from 2014 lost support from the locals people, these things have changed. It is time for India to allow the locals and villages to move ahead and build their economy which against the very sprit of the RSS to promote Indian economy.
In order to win any war, locals play a vital role. Locals should graze their cattle because it is our territory. They should be told up to which point they can go so that they don’t cross over. Similarly India has to allow tourists to move ahead, even in Demchok which is a tense area. Let the tourists go and stay in homestays there.
India must open up. India need to get tourism to these areas without changing the beautiful culture of the Ladakhi people, that will motivate them to stand by Indian troops. In other words India has to change her thought process on how these areas can be opened up to people and think of development of their economy in Kargil, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir and western parts of Arunachal Pradesh in that manner.
