New Delhi: While tensions prevail between India and China, reports have been received that the Indian Intelligence Satellites have surveyed the Chinese military movements in Tibet. Sources informed that the Emisat satellite carried out surveillance of the Chinese region, connected to the Arunachal Pradesh border. It has been reported, based on the surveillance carried out by this satellite that China has once again started increasing military deployment in this region.
Last month, the Indian soldiers delivered a telling blow to China during the conflict in the Galwan Valley. Thereafter, although, China indicated withdrawal of the military from the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the tension between the two countries has not been completely diffused. India and China share an 800 kilometres long border in Ladakh. Chinese military keeps making intrusion attempts, in the Pangong lake, Chumar, Demchok and Daulat Beg Oldie areas. India has increased the defence deployments in all these areas, following the Galwan Valley conflict. Feeling the pressure, due to the Indian actions, China has started preparations to start conflicts in other areas along the LAC.
The preparations being made in the Tibet region, near Ladakh, underline this Chinese intent. But at the same time, it is clear from surveillance by the Emisat satellite that India is keeping a keen eye on the Chinese military movements. EMISAT is a part of the Indian government’s initiative ‘Project Kautilya’ started for ‘Electronic Intelligence’. Sources informed that this satellite noticed the Chinese military movements in Tibet.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that China has once again started increasing deployment in the Depsang region, near the LAC in Ladakh. China has brought military contingents and vehicles in the region and digging work also has started. Before this, China had made an intrusion attempt from this region in 2013. Therefore, Chinese military deployment in this region becomes significant.
Against this background, Lieutenant General RP Singh, Chief of the Western Command, of the Indian Army, visited the forward areas in the Jammu division, on Saturday. He reviewed the military preparations in Basoli, Bakloh and Mamun regions. It is being said that after receiving the strong blow from India in the Galwan Valley conflict, the Chinese plan is starting a conflict on both the Indian borders, in coordination with Pakistan. Therefore, the visit of the Chief of Western command becomes important.
