Recovering from the shock of deceitful encroachments by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China, the Indian Army has turned the tables on the aggressors on the south bank of Pangong Lake. This is despite an increase in the number of Chinese troops close to the Thakung base in Indian territory.
Indian soldiers succeeded in repelling the PLA’s attempt to capture mountain tops to provide them advantageous positions. The Chinese troops amassed near ‘Black Top’ and ‘Helmet’ areas at the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Thereafter, China mobilized troops close to the Indian base at Thakung.
Thwarting the Chinese designs, India got hold of Rechin La, which is about 2.5 km to 3 km from Rezang La on the LAC on the Indian side.
India has expressed concerns about Chinese mobilization close to the Indian base at Thakung.
China yesterday accused India of crossing the Line of Actual Control. However, India has denied these claims.
To resolve the issue, militaries of both the countries are now engaged in a dialogue. "Brigade commanders of both the countries have been meeting for three continuous days," said a senior officer of the Indian government.
