PANGONG TSO LAKE — SOUTHERN BANK A TION BY INDIAN ARMY ON NUGHT 29/30 AUGUST

On the intervening night if 29-30 August, when PLA tried to wrest control of a protrusion on the southern bank of  Pangong Tso Lake, Indian Army ( IA) came to know about it and moved in strength. and thwarted its operation.  China was given the taste of its own medicine .

China always behaves like a STREET URCHIN BULLY , as long as opposing party is submissive . This has been happening since 1962. It moves 10 steps forward and then goes back two steps through negotiation. This has been its strategy at nibbling Indian territory . This is what it was doing everywhere — whether Nepal, South China Sea or Bhutan . Even with Pakistan , it is encroaching into Gilgit – Baltistan . But Pakistan is neck deep in debt with China and it cannot defy it .

On the said intervening night of 29/ 30 August 2020, IA troops from 7 ViIKAS battalion led by Col Ranbir Singh Jaswal , surrounded a high ground on the Southern Bank of Lake which has a PLA post which over looks our road from Chushul to Demchok.
Unconfirmed reports say that some PWs were taken. Some say 25-30 PWs.  After that IA moved in further deeper and occupied other high grounds over looking the full PLA camp on the northwest bank of Spanggur  Tso.
7 VIKAS (Special Service Force) of Tibetan refugees has captured Kala Top &  Reqin and 2 other lesser features. IA is dominating most of Reqin Valley now, first time after 1962. Couple of deaths on our side and probably 7-8 on Chinese side.
Chinese had moved their tanks closer to LAC. China did try to dislodge IA on the night of 31 August/ 01 Sept but were beaten back. PLA might try again . But IA is alert .
Will India reinforce success ? Or will the Chinese GOC do anything to redeem his image in Chinese hierarchy . The Chinese forward LAC camp in Galwan has also reportedly been pushed back by Indian forces.
PLA wants India to withdraw from these features which has been refused by India. Now the ball is in PLA court. Either they have to open fire on our troops which means they will start the war or accept the new status quo.
Any firing on the Southern bank of Lake between the Pangong Tso and Spanggur Tso gap will result in action across finger areas with all the area from F4-F8 becoming live

It is the first time that India has taken a firm stand and India should stand firm.

You have rightly said, that none except India has the power to thwart Chinese aggression. One by one they are all turning to be China’s puppets. Latest is Nepal and as we all know, Pakistan will offer you know what I mean, to please them. But there motive has always intrigued me, but they have their long term designs. The 1962 aggression and the resultant loss of Aksai China, which I understand is strategic in the ambitious OBOR, wasn’t obvious to us. So, I think they have never accepted LAC to keep all options open, but still what is this slow encroaching upon the unmarked land intended for ? For accession of Ladakh? At a time like this when the economies of all countries of the world are strained, building up army presence at such terrains means unnecessary waste of money.
