New Delhi: Defense Minister Rajnath Singh made a statement to Parliament on the lingering tensions on the border with China. For the first time, after the incident in the southern region of Galvan Valley and Lake Paigong, the government gave full information to Parliament. In Lok Sabha, Rajnath Singh assured that the country’s borders are completely secure and that the army personnel are firmly deployed in the defense of the homeland. In parliament, the defense minister said five big things about China.
First, he said that on the night of August 29-30, China attempted to infiltrate the south side of Lake Pangong, but our efforts were thwarted by our troops.
– Rajnath Singh also briefed Parliament on the violence in the Galvan Valley on June 15 and said our soldiers in Galvan had protected the border, causing heavy damage to the Chinese military.
According to the Minister of Defense, since April of this year, the number of Chinese soldiers and weapons on the Ladakh border has steadily increased. According to the defense minister, there are tensions over the LAC because China has gathered a large number of troops and ammunition in its region and, in response to this, India has also made full preparations.
– Rajnath Singh said an important thing in Parliament. According to him, the Indian army is fully on alert on the real line of control, that is to say LAC, and is ready to act as needed.
– When the Chinese army tried to stop the Indian army patrols on LAC and it created a confrontational situation.
– Rajnath Singh said that China wants to change the LAC in Ladakh. For this purpose, the Chinese military constantly tries to encroach, but the Indian military is quite capable of responding.
Defense Minister Told India 3 Principles About China
Rajnath Singh also conveyed a message to those who doubt the opposition parties and the resolve of the government of Parliament. He said the country’s parliament should give a message with one voice that the whole country stands firmly on the side of the military. After that, the Minister of Defense spelled out India’s 3 Principles on China.
– The first principle is that both parties must respect the real line of control, ie LAC.
Second, neither side should unilaterally try to violate the ACA.
– The third principle is that all existing agreements between the two countries must be respected.
The second front of diplomacy against Chinese expansionism
The second front is diplomacy against Chinese expansionism. Here, too, India is constantly reacting to its movements. At every international stage, India is emerging as a force to compete with China.
– India made its place in the United Nations Economic and Social Council a day earlier.
– India will continue to be a member of this council for the next four years.
– To obtain this seat, there was a competition between India, China and Afghanistan.
– India and Afghanistan were supported by most of the 54 members, while no major country gave support to China.
A huge change in India’s foreign policy
In the recent past, a great change is visible in the foreign policy of India. Until now, India was called elephant, that is, elephant in terms of foreign policy. But now India’s foreign policy has become aggressive like a lion instead of an elephant.
– Previously, India’s foreign policy change process was very slow. Now rapid changes are underway based on opportunities and needs.
On the first stage of the world, India lived like an elephant, like a silent player. But now he is active and also tells about his presence to the world.
– The elephant is not aggressive despite its strength, but the lion is both powerful and aggressive. In such a situation, this comparison now seems more accurate for India.
– The lion never shows his sense of wit on the face. You will recall that Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked expansionism without naming China.
China is a country that understands the language of force. So far he has worked with India. But the situation has changed rapidly in recent months. Now China has started talking about deals and standstill. Due to the diplomatic pressure created by India, China is now reminding India of the agreements and treaties that it itself has broken from time to time.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry released another statement today. Let me tell you this statement so that you can understand how much pressure China is under since the events in Ladakh.
India’s military front against China
Meanwhile, the Indian army in Ladakh is preparing for winter. In winter, the temperature in Ladakh rises to minus 40 degrees. In these times, the supply of rations, weapons and other essentials is a major challenge. The Indian army today conducted a major exercise in Ladakh. In which a series of preparations have been made for the time to come. It is India’s military front against China. To tell you about it, the ZEE NEWS team is currently in Ladakh and from there we have prepared an exclusive report for you.
The Indian Air Force’s largest transport aircraft, the C-17 Globemaster, constantly carries essential logistics and military items to Leh Airport.
The Air Force Shinook helicopters are soon doing the job of delivering this material to inaccessible areas. So that the soldiers present at a height of 16 and 17 thousand feet could be saved from the cold. Shinook helicopters can carry up to 10 tons of cargo at a time.
And to ensure the safety of this mission, Sukhoi 30 MKI fighter planes are also present in the sky.
Indian soldiers are at the top of the LAC compared to Chinese soldiers and they should be stationed at home in winter, all necessary arrangements are being made for this.
Special winter preparations for high altitude troops
In winter, the temperature of many parts of Ladakh reaches minus 40 degrees. For the next 7-8 months, the soldiers will need special tents. With the help of the heater inside, the temperature will be comfortable and the soldiers will have no problems. At this height, each soldier received a total of 21 items to protect the country from winter. These include warm three-layer clothes, three-layer sock gloves and a warm hat. Special boots were also given to the soldiers to protect the frost.
No army can take a step without food. Soldiers stationed at high altitudes require special high-calorie rations, especially in winter. The Army Service Corps provided vegetarian and non-vegetarian food for the jawans. These include things like dried fruits, chocolate, ready-to-eat food packages, and dry candies.
You will be proud to know that all the items needed for the Indian Army have been collected in Leh in such a quantity, which will be sufficient for the next 14 months. In other words, the preparation of the Indian Air Force was completed even before the onset of winter.
