Recently, the Indian Army and ITBP conducted a joint military exercise on the Uttarakhand border with China. Its codename was ‘IBEX’. This exercise was done for better coordination among themselves.
Sources said that the Chinese army is also engaged in military exercises. His army battalion comes regularly. Every move of the enemy is being closely monitored. It has been observed that their battalions come to the training areas at regular intervals. It replaces the old battalion.
According to sources, China has prepared a lot of infrastructure around the LAC. Permanent residences have been prepared for the soldiers here.
China is building infrastructure like a bridge over Pangong Tso. This will help his army to come to the forefront faster. In response, India is also building alternative roads to reach Depsan Plain. Apart from this, connectivity with Nubra Valley is being increased.
In April-May 2020, China started showing aggression arbitrarily on the LAC. Daulat Beg Oldie area can be accessed through Durbak-Shyok-DBO road. With the construction of new infrastructure, the army will get the convenience of commuting here at any time of the year.
India has also made a major reshuffle in the deployment of military forces. Additional forces have been deployed along the LAC. This step has been taken to respond to any mischief by China. Infrastructure has been strengthened from Leh to Eastern Ladakh.
