Amid the border dispute between India and China in eastern Ladakh and ongoing military and diplomatic talks to resolve it, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) continues to build more troops shelters and strengthen its airbases near the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
A report published in the Times of India stated that China has constructed modular container-based accommodations for its soldiers in around eight locations near eastern Ladakh.
The container-based accommodations have been constructed at Wahab Zilga near the Karakoram Pass in the north to Piue, Hot Springs, Chang La, Tashigong, Manza and Churup, the report said.
Meanwhile, an IANS report stated that the PLA recently carried out a night battle exercise at over 16,000 feet in the Xinjiang region. Ever since India strongly reacted to China’s unilateral attempts to alter the status quo in eastern Ladakh, the PLA has been rapidly enhancing military infrastructure at the LAC.
India has also strongly responded to the Chinese aggression in eastern Ladakh and deployed around 50,000 troops, frontline fighter aircraft, anti-missile systems, artillery guns and other heavy military equipment near the LAC.
