    Delhi plays down China incursion

    [​IMG]

    New Delhi, Aug. 21: Chinese soldiers entered Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh and camped for two days before returning on August 13, but official sources in Delhi described the transgression as a “non-event”.

    An Indian Army long-range patrol and Chinese troops crossed paths on the border near Chaglagam in eastern Arunachal’s Anjaw district on August 11, an army source said.

    The site is referred to in the military as the “Fishtail” area, which has a history of transgressions by border patrols, one as recently as February this year, because the boundary is not defined. Both armies patrol up to their “lines of perception” but the overlap could be as wide as 20km.

    Another source said the area is the responsibility of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, which reported the Chinese transgression to the army. The ITBP position is ahead of army positions.

    Sources in the army headquarters said the incident was not comparable with the stand-off at Raki Nala in eastern Ladakh in April-May this year when Chinese troops pitched tents. The face-off lasted three weeks before Indian and Chinese soldiers withdrew from their positions following a flag meeting.

    The sources said soldiers on long-range patrols might carry tents and equipment to shelter themselves from the weather in the heights. In the Fishtail area, at heights above 11,000ft, the patrols can last up to 12 days.

    In that event, soldiers might pitch tents. That is not necessarily to be interpreted as an effort to occupy territory, an army officer said.

    Although the Indian establishment maintains it was a “non-event”, former BJP parliamentarian from Arunachal, Kiren Rijiju, said the Chinese had intruded 60km and were still within Indian territory.

    “The Chinese came in till the Plamplam post of the Indian forces and crossed the Tashitara Gompa along the border,” Rijiju said.

    Local sources from Chaglagam said the Chinese had come 40km from the village to a place where, they said, Indian Army forces are still stationed.

    However, government sources said the long-range patrol personnel were at the Hardig La (pass) or at a place called Delta-6, which is farther away, “and are staying put there” for now.

    The mountain pass is about 90km north of Chaglagam, the last habitation where the ITBP mans a border outpost.

    Although civilian and government versions seldom match, they agree that Chinese incursions are not uncommon in these remote mountains, scarcely populated by Mishmi tribal villages.

    “The Chinese keep coming and patrols from here keep going there,” a local villager said over the phone.

    ******************************

    Another acne, Mr Salman Khrushed?

    Is your brave talks limited to warning of serious consequence to only Indian opponents?

    Or taking the disabled for a ride?

    Salman Khurshid literally dared IAC’s Arvind Kejriwal, on Tuesday to enter Farrukhabad. He said that when Kejriwal comes to Farrukhabad, “he will have to listen to what we have to say and can forget about asking questions.”

    Thwarting the threat, Kejriwal later retorted saying: “So far I have worked with a pen, I can work with blood also.” The IAC however, has sought the intervention of the President of India into the matter.

    Salman Khurshid issues veiled warning to Kejriwal

    As usual.

    Sell-out slaves of China.

    They will show all their two-sides on Pakistan but piss off when it comes to the eastern border.

    WTF are we northeast Indians? Aliens? Who don't need protection?

    Personally nothing wrong with playing down incursions, as boots on the ground and guns are better than hot air. If common people have a sense of preparations being done behind the scenes, it would be even better.

    Perhaps a sizeable portion of your compatriots in Assam would like to be part of China.

    Still doesn't matter to the topic at hand: a sizeable portion of Assamese wish to make Assam independent of India.

    You worry about Tibet and Turkestan.

    Because if you support Islamic terrorism in Kashmir, next in line is your Xinjiang province in the eyes of jihadis.

    So come to your senses and stop this madness.

    Since you cannot refuse the orders from the Red Guard who will shoot you dead if you agree with me, so go ahead reply to my comment and earn your quota.

    :lol: Assam is not Kashmir, and you have no proof of Chinese support to independence movements in either region. To your second point, I live in the United States.

    Anyhow, here is the history of the Assamese Independence Movement:

    Assamese separatist movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Since 1990, tens of thousands of Assamese have given their lives in the pursuit of an independent Assam. Even if the Indian Constitution disallows it, that is a clear vote for secession; those ballots are marked not with ink, but with blood.

    Another off topic topic rant from you.

    Coming form a Chinese talk of votes and ballots are laughable when thousands of Tibetans are immolating themselves every year and hundreds and thousands are rallying in Hong Kong against the illegitimate government of PRC. Better set your own house in order first. :cool:

    Off topic rant? The original question about Assam came from an Indian poster. I was merely adding meat to his insinuations that Assamese are less annoyed at Chinese incursions than other Indian citizens.

    The rest of your post is a factual exaggeration and/or tu quoque, so I will ignore it.

    The first time Assam is mentioned in this thread is in post #8 and that is your post. Then you went on to reprimand a poster for going off topic when he countered your already off topic post with a Tibet question. Hypocritical much?

    Of course you would :)
