Army chief plays down Chinese troop incursion in Ladakh (Update: Army chief)
General Singh said that the “so-called” intrusions take place due to perceptional differences about the Line of Actual Control(LAC) between India and China, an issue which is being addressed by the two countries through discussion.
Chinese troops, in September-October last year, had entered Gombir area in Demchok region in Jammu and Kashmir and threatened the civilian workers building a shed as per plans cleared by the state rural development department.
General Singh said the Army and the Ministry of External Affairs had advised all people concerned not to rush through matters and wait till the boundary issue was resolved by China and India.
The Chief of Indian Army Gen. V K Singhs sounds more like a politician and far from an Army person. China has been slowly and aggressively encroaching upon Indian territory. The Indian army has aptly subdued and hidden any reports from the media with misleading statements. The similar assurances were stated earlier pre-1962 India-China war that ended as an embarrasment for Indian security forces. A blatant fear that Indian government and the Indian forces display has only served well for Chinese interests in the north-east Indian region, few months ago China introduced their currency in Arunachal Pardesh.
However, I do not doubt the bravery of Indian forces in the face of the enemy but can India deny such facts and say that war will only be disastrous for both the economies, if erupted? It will also be unreasonable on my part just to point out fingers to our brave soldiers who work in the toughest conditions , but what are the elected doing so far to strengthen the nation or even take up this matter seriously with China or with UN. How long the Indian army can protect the country without the politicians giving any support in terms of diplomacy, development of our own weapons, technology and infrastructure.
We cannot solely blame the politicians as today Indians have decided to elect such useless criminals to their power. A common person in India is having a good time eating vada pav, watching TV and listening to Bollywood news, he doesn’t have time to think about the future of the country.
I will not be surprised in next few years that couple of states from north-east India will be in Chinese territory. China doesn’t have to go on with a war with India, as Indians will slowly give them what they want.
