Situation remains tense as there has been a surge in the number of Chinese transgressions across the disputed India China border in Ladakh.
The Chinese, sources said, have objected to construction of a new road in Indian Territory which branches off the Darbuk-Shyok-Daulat Beg Oldie (DSDBO) road along the riverbank towards the LAC.
The situation started building up in late April and resulted in scuffles at Pangong Tso on May 5 and at Naku La in North Sikkim on May 9 which resulted in significant injuries due to a face off between Indian-Chinese forces.
Now the reports coming out that PLA (People’s Liberation Army) has stationed more troops at these points, pitched over 100 tents, constructing bunkers and start monitoring with various equipment.
The Indian side also increased the number of troops, tents, bunkers and patroling at these points and the current situation is tense on both the sides.
What China’s real intention behind the increase transgressions at LAC
The very first visible reason behind this sudden aggression is obviously the construction of road in Indian Territory near LAC. China already has shown objection towards the road. But is this reason enough for China to rose up tension at this height, as both Nation holds big firepower.
The second reason which most people believe is expansionists nature of Communist government in China. They almost have border dispute with every neighbouring states. But this is not such a big reason to increase tension with India of this gravity.
China’s real intention behind all this dispute is lies in the history Communist China.
Whenever there’s presence of internal crisis in China, the Communist government does something to divert the attention of their citizens. 1962 Indo-China was precipitated because of the failure of Great leap forward in China which ultimately resulted a big internal crisis in China.
The Great Leap Forward of the People’s Republic of China was an economic and social campaign led by the Communist Party of China from 1958 to 1962. But ultimately the Great leap forward resulted a great failure and claimed tens of millions of deaths, with estimates ranging between 18 million and 45 million deaths.
As same goes with Doklam dispute, Doklam stand off happen in between 16 Jun 2017 – 28 Aug 2017. But in the same year national elections was due to happen in PRC. Election conducted in between October 2017 to February 2018 and XI Jinping again elected as the leader of PRC. Clearly the Doklam Stand off happened only with a motive to divert public attention from important issues.
Crisis that China facing currently
Due to Coronavirus pandemic, unemployment rate in People’s Republic of China is at its record spike. Unemployment rate in PRC surge to 6.2%. Tens Million of people thrown out of their job. Factories were shut down, many foreign Company planning to leave China. All this was taking the form of a big unemployment crisis.
Pro Democratic protest again errupted in Hongkong on the back of Coronavirus situation improving in the region. Chinese authorities proposed a new Hongkong security law. Now this new law becoming a reason for more violent protests in Hongkong.
Coronavirus already eroded the reputation of China at International level. Many countries are demanding detail and independent investigation in China because of the outbreak.
Therefore, China’s real intention behind the sudden rise in transgression between India and China is just a attempt to divert the attention of their citizens and to save Communist party.
