Even though they are indulging in peace talks at military level after the 15th June’s deadly clash there intentions are not right. The Chinese armed forces are looking to open a new front in Ladakh after the skirmish at Galwan valley. The dragon army is now looking to intrude into the Depsang region.
The Chinese have crossed the border in a strategic area to the north, the Depsang plains. This another attempt by the mischievous dragon to shift the LAC (Line of Actual Control) west of the disputed boundary. The latest intrusion is alarming for India as it is close to the airstrip.
The Chinese have made large deployments in the area which is 30 km south-east from the important airstrip of Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO). The place where the Chinese troops are deployed is called the Y-junction or Bottleneck on the Depsang plains. Apart from troops the Chinese deployment has heavy vehicles, specialist military equipment in the area. The bottleneck is around 18 km on the Indian side of the LAC.
Depsang is the same place where the Chinese intruded in 2013 and the status quo was maintained after diplomatic talks. Meanwhile, the satellite images show that the Chinese structure at the Galwan is back. Chinese have built a “defensive position” at the Galwan Valley face-off site. The Chinese have got military vehicles, heavy trucks and bulldozers along with tented camps. These movements show that the Chinese call for peace is more of deception then reality.
