Modi is being questioned by Indian opposition leaders over China's confrontation with the disputed Himalayan region



Asked whether China's failure to build its military in the disputed Himalayas, the Prime Minister of India on Friday met opposition leaders and killed 20 Indian soldiers.


The main opposition party, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, called for strong government action to protect and defend the Indian territory.

"We are still in the dark about many important aspects of the crisis," she said.

His party initially issued a statement saying, "India deserves a leadership ready to do anything before it takes its land."

India and China have accused each other of being part of the disputed Ladakh region along the Himalayan border in the Galvan Valley. China has not said what a deadly confrontation between China would have caused in the 45 years with no casualties.

The two countries said they were communicating through military and diplomatic channels and emphasized the importance of their wider relations. Experts say there is no fear of war between the two countries, but it is easy to reduce tensions.

China continued its position on Friday to blame India for the skirmish.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said, "Right and wrong are very clear and the responsibility lies solely with India."

Both India and China have denied media reports that Indian soldiers are in Chinese custody.

In Monday's clash, troops clashed with clubs, rocks, and their fists in the thin air at an altitude of 4,270 meters (14,000 feet) above sea level, but no fire was reported, Indian officials said. Soldiers carry firearms but are not allowed to use them in accordance with previous agreements in border disputes.

Indian security officials said the fatal injuries were caused by severe injuries and exposure to subfreezing temperatures.

The skirmish began with a deadlock that began in May when Chinese troops crossed the border in three places and ignored the warning to set up tents and guard posts. This has led to fierce slogans, stonewalling, and fighting between rival parties, most of which have resurfaced on TV news programs and social media.

The move covers a distance of 3,380 kilometers (2,100-miles) of de facto control - the border that was established in 1962 after the war between India and China, resulting in undesirable tensions.

Defense analyst Rahul Bedi said the rules of engagement on the actual line of control - which not only banned the use of live ammunition but also banned physical contact between soldiers.

"There is a lot of pressure on the Indian side. The sentiments of the people are high," Bedi said.

"India will sit at the negotiating table with China and ask them to change these agreements to make them more aggressive or aggressive," he said.

At a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, Gandhi said that "the country as a whole" assures that China is withdrawing its forces to the actual line of control. Other opposition leaders echoed his call.

Modi has to speak after hearing those concerns.

The skirmish in India, which is already high due to the coronavirus pandemic that started in China late last year, has raised anti-China sentiment. India's Keselad has reached number four in the world.

The Indian trade union has called for the boycott of 500 Chinese goods, including dolls and garments, to express "serious criticism" of Chinese action in Ladakh.

Taylor Fravel, director of the Security Studies Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that China was trying to put pressure on India and Beijing did not expect violent clashes between its forces.
From a strategic standpoint, Fravel said China should launch a campaign to stop any imbalance between India and the US.

"Monday night's deaths and collisions will very quickly and very quickly make India closer to the US, which I think China does not want," he said.

Yes. Parthasarathy, a retired Indian diplomat, said that China and Pakistan - India's archive - are targeting India's low-cost target. "China is against India and its civilization. We hope China will be a friendly neighbor. It will never be a friendly relationship."

China claims an area of ​​90,000 square kilometers (35,000 square miles) in the northeast of India, and that China is an integral part of the Ladakh region in the Aksai Chin plateau of the Himalayas.

India unilaterally declared Ladakh a federal territory in August 2019, separating it from the disputed Kashmir. China is among the countries that have condemned the move, which has been raised on forums, including the UN Security Council. India was elected to the council this week.
