Subscribe to Oneindia News


New Delhi, Sept 03: It seems that the China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) troops' transgressions have become more intensive.

According to reports, the Chinese troops have 'stopped' the Indian troops to patrol the Indian side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the eastern Ladakh.

On August 10, the National Security Advisory Board (NSAB) Chairperson Shyam Saran handed over the report on the India-China border issue to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, that was commissioned by the PMO.

Then the PM told Shyam Saran to visit the eastern Ladakh and Siachen sector from August 6 to August 9 to review the security situation in these areas.

The assessment revealed that the Chinese troops are more aggressive in the areas of Chumar, Depsang Bulge and Daulet Beg Oldi sector.

The govt has set up an inter-ministerial panel to monitor the situation at LAC.

As the China is continuously ringing the alarm bell, Saran also indicated that the "limits of patrol" line has become the new LAC for India.

The report was also shared with the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS).

The incidents of Chinese troops incursion into the Indian territory are not new but they not allowing the Indian counterparts to patrol their side is not justified at all.

To handle the serious issue, the Indian government should take swift action and should monitor the security situation at the LAC, before the matter goes out of hand.

The government has reportedly set up an inter-ministerial panel headed by the Home Secretary Anil Goswami to take note of the situation at the LAC and has also instructed concerned officials to remove the bureaucratic hurdles in Ladakh to speed up infrastructure development.
