Wave of Chinese 'Incursions' in Chamoli Area of Uttarakhand Since July 24

India China to build CBM through multilateral fora

With the Doklam standoff still ongoing, it has emerged that Chinese troops had entered Indian territory in Uttarakhand close to a week ago. In July previous year, two PLA soldiers had reportedly crossed into the same area. Playing down the incident, a government source in the Capital said: "Media is carrying reports about an intrusion in Barahoti".

Chinese state media has again urged and warned India to end the almost two-month long stand-off with Beijing in the Doklam region unconditionally to avoid being placed in a position of disadvantage. It is also one of three border posts in what is known the "middle sector", comprising Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

It is a demilitarised zone where the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and their chines counterparts do not take their weapons.


The western media reports depicts India as "mild which called for a troop withdrawal and bilateral negotiations" and portrays China as "aggressive", the article says. The officials informed the ITBP, who then sent across a patrol to check the area. The Chinese troops, too, withdrew the same day.

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval's departure from Beijing, after a crucial meeting with China's state councilor Yang Jiechi, has triggered an energetic debate on finding a formula for defusing the crisis in the remote Doklam plateau, where Indian and Chinese troops are engaged in a lengthy stand-off. Chinese soldiers transgressed into between 800 metres to 1 kilometer of Indian Territory and people were reportedly asked to take their cattle and leave, as per sources.

In a conversation with The Hindu, Long Xingchun, Director of Centre of India Studies, China West Normal University, advocated that Bhutan could become a key player in ending the face-off in Doklam, as part of a two-step formula of finding a solution. The ridge is connected to Joshimath, which houses major Indian Army formations meant to counter any major operations by China's People's Liberation Army. At an event to mark the 90th anniversary of China's army in New Delhi, in attendance were representatives from India besides those from Bhutan, Pakistan and other countries.
