9 years of disaster. There are so many instances, that it would be tough to pick just 9.
Here's my list.
1. #Demonetisation. That one stroke of stupidity that literally broke the nation's back. ImageImageImage
2. #Pulwama
Still remains a mystery, how a vehicle loaded with explosives could move around, undetected, in J&k, one of the most militarised regions in the world. What was more shameful than this was how BJP used this tragedy for electoral gains.
+ ImageImageImage
3. #JammuAndKashmir
Art. 370 was abrogated. J&K stopped being a state. Was carved out into 2 UTs. With the objectives of bringing peace & development to the region. Result? We've ended with 2 UTs with seething discontent below the surface.

1/6 Reason y #India & #China r buying GOLD from diff places🔴
~India’s forex reserves is in US dollar denominated securities.India faces risk of erosion in reserves due to rise in US bond yields.
~Only 8% of India’s reserve is in GOLD.
~#TURKEY is largest buyer of gold in 2022.
2/6 ~Seems inflation will hit b4 de-dollarisation takes place‼️Hence Indian Govt is shoring up India’s foundation against inflation by buying GOLD.
~ #China hs bn in a GOLD buying spree coz it hs same issue as India’s— 2,000 tons of Gold it bought represent jst 3% of reserves.
3/6 ~B4 de- dollarisation takes place, INFLATION will hit us is a reality.
~Yes, it’s true New global reserve currency (GRC) has been introduced by #BRICS. Had mentioned it in my article. 👇
🔴GRC has an issue: intra BRICS economic ties will increase.…

#UnderstandingMilitaryMind CoK- China Occupied Kashmir. Lost land since then? Since when? Ok how much did we hold to start with? The day you tell me how much we held, that would be right start to say how much we lost. Read Ukraine war to understand ‘military mindset’.
While Russian Military has made Ukraine Armed Forces defunct in a week, it speaks of ‘military mindset’ of Russian Army. Their Generals knew their geopolitics well. Not only Ukraine, they knew Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia well. They know each of NATO countries well.
Compare this with the Generals of Indian Army. #Galwan brought out the best strategist out of everyone who wore uniform. A gentleman asked me today, ‘How much land have we lost to Chinese?’, my counter question was, ‘How much was held?’. With over 100 strategist’s belting

he report says China had lost 42 soldiers in the clash -- many more than the four it had claimed. The "PLA soldiers panicked into retreat" and at least 38 of them were washed away, the report said.

Dragon huggers in India...
Listen to @AmbVPrakash on the challenge posed by peddlers of Chinese agenda in #India.
Indian democracy used against India as #China uses PsyOps.
Should Govt respond? Nip it in the bud?
#Doklam to #Galwan India must counter Chinese mind games asap.
Important to beware!!!

China uses local laws, pressure groups (brainwashed &/or paid?), 'democratic institutions' to its advantage.
China failed in #Doklam. China has not succeeded in eastern #Ladakh to brow beat us.

India 🇮🇳 did QPQ Operations dominating China's Moldo garrison forcing China to withdraw from certain friction points. There are other aces up India's sleeve forcing China to build rapidly & construct a bridge on PangongTso (Aksai Chin is Indian territory too) #India should object

1/4 Problem arises when we assume ENEMY will take the most LOGICAL step.
During Kargil War, Indian Army had managed to surprise the enemy by taking risks.

Expecting CHEEN & Pak will now take most LOGICAL step forward is a MISTAKE. I hv heard it so many times that our…
2/4 enemy will not attempt something a certain way bcoz it’s risky & STUPID. #GALWAN is an ideal example of—method to enemy’s madness. They escalated things at LAC with the incident & we weren’t expecting it. Our forces wr prepared… bt nobody saw it coming at that point of time.
Kargil war: Our soldiers climbed an impossible 90 deg CLIFF.
“We wr group of 7 to climb #TigerHill. Surrounded by death from all sides, we knew we were going to die, but we were determined to inflict max casualties”--Param Vir Chakra awardee Y S Yadav who took 12 bullets.

An article titled "Minor face-off with Chinese troops in Galwan Valley" published in The Hindu on 23 May 2021 has been taken note of. (1/4)
It is clarified that NO such minor face-off has taken place between Indian and Chinese troops at #Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh in the first week of May 2021 as reported. (2/4)
The article seems to be inspired by sources who may be trying to derail the ongoing process for early resolution of issues in Eastern Ladakh. (3/4)

20 Indian braves made Supreme sacrifice of their lives at #Galwan to push back an expansionist China at #LAC.
#China remains hostile to India.
#Maharashtra power outage blamed on Chinese hackers.
China yet to pull back from #Depsang.
Yet Rs 300 cr Telecom contract to #Huawei? ImageImage
Is this the 'whole of India' approach being adopted to deal with expansionist forces?
Why continue to give access to China in critical areas like Telecom?
Even if central Govt is to be believed China didn't succeed in #Maharashtra power outage, attempts were made? Even in Delhi
Soldiers make the supreme sacrifice for a strong nation.
Can business & industry not sacrifice profits for a strong nation?
Is this the whole of nation approach to deal with China?
Is this #Atmanirbhar #Bharat?
Profits more important than national interest?

Let's look at your coercion capabilities n record

1. 15/16 June - #Galwan you changed troops, occupied high ground on a narrow pass, equipped yourselves with lethal weapons and launched an ambush on an unarmed party lead by Col Santosh Babu. He had come to negotiate....

Result - our troops snatched your weapons and launched a bayonet charge. We KIA 45-100 of your men, captured many officers. You know well that your men were shrieking with fear - so called shock troops

Ambush time, place, weapons of your choosing and yet you lost...badly

2. Spangur 29/30 Aug - Your troops tried to take heights around Spangur but our troops outran them and took the heights not only around Spangur but right up to Rezangla - 30 km frontage. Your entire position in Chushul has been made untebable. You were thinking you would..

Since Dragon warriors or whatever are posing with some blades on a stick, I thought I would share some Indian boys with knives. These boys know how to go chop-chop with it. When it flashes, heads roll. Literally. Let's begin with Glorious Gurkhas #IndianBlades #IndiaChinaFaceOff
And this Dao is from our 'Rhinos' boys of Assam Regiment. Comes in handy when patrolling in jungles or high altitudes. Cuts through the bushes or bushy-tailed princes really well. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades
Next in line are our Sikh boy. Best avoided when they charge with their 'Kirpans' with the name of Wahe Guru on their lips and breathing fire. I am sure you would recognize them, they spent quite some time in the Dragon country. #RezangLa #IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianBlades #Galwan

China meets the Great India Wall at #LAC in South #PangongTso. Indian soldiers in strength at #LAC prevent another Chinese transgression on the south side of Pangong lake near #Chushul. India in a commanding position. China cries foul, alleges transgression. Top focus #IndiaFirst
India doesn't want war with #China. But thats not synonymous with permitting PLA transgressions on #LAC. @PMOIndia through #Wuhan & #Mamallapuram Summits tried hard to ensure India & China grow together.But Xi Jinping's myopic vision & Chinese expansionism have to be responded to Image
Wanting peace is not an act of weakness & now China has seen India's resolve both at #Galwan & area south of #PangongTso. Plus gradually reducing Chinese footprint (easier said than done) in Indian market. India must continue to stand firm. Hopefully India will speak in one voice

Heartfelt gratitude to our ever smiling, extremely hospitable brave warriors in inhospitable terrain #Karakoram & an extremely dedicated, talented cameraperson @kirpals68569684 fellow traveler on this 255 kms journey to #DBO. I am overwhelmed by the response to our Special Report Image
90% respondents @IndiaToday spoke to were in favour of boycotting Chinese products in response to Chinese transgressions at #LAC. #Galwan (No, that is not India's only response to Chinese treachery) Read @IndiaToday for #MoodOfTheNation. Big focus on @PMOIndia response to #China. Image

The tanks, the paratroopers, the troops. #Ladakh. RM @rajnathsingh 's visit to Leh, Stakna & Lukung. First @PMOIndia & now Raksha Mantri in Ladakh. Signals India's intent. Restoration of status quo ante (Honour the sacrifices of #Galwan braves. Stare the dragon down. #IndiaFirst) ImageImageImage
#Galwan: the Supreme sacrifice by 20 Indian braves (inflicting many more casualties across) is a watershed in India-China engagement. The era of salami slicing of Indian territory & coercion is over. India now speeds up infrastructure development. New equipment to carve mountains
Short, medium & long term aims.
Short Term: Restoration of status quo ante at #LAC
Medium Term: Initiate patrolling till all patrol points post de-escalation.
Long Term: Build & improve infrastructure (road/helipads to enable quick movement of men & material to any area asap)

If the #PLA has gained territory & has an upper hand militarily, why have the Chinese moved back 2 kms at #Galwan ? Why have the Chinese moved back to Finger 5. Indian army & Govt must continue to maintain pressure till full status quo ante is restored. World looking up to India.
At #Galwan our braves sent out the message we will not cede an inch of our territory & there will be consequences for China if salami slicing continues. China may have moved back to prevent loss of lives in another sudden flare up. India by all accounts will keep up the pressure.
What has China gained?

Land? No (game on. China will retreat beyond Finger 8, sooner than later)

Respect? No (an entire country looks at the Chinese with suspicion/contempt)

Market? No (out of Telecom upgrade,MSME, road infrastructure, hopefully more areas soon)

Any gains?

1/n #IndoChinaCrisis2020 If this doesn’t open our eyes and shake us nothing will. Rigidity of thoughts, being blind to reality, arrogance of rulers supported by spineless ‘jee huzoor’ variety of military advisers brings us to knees. India is silent today. Silence is deafening.
2/n #IndoChinaCrisis2020 Everybidy is silent. Generals, Strategists, hi flying panelists, intellectuals and the creme-de-la-creme Security Advisors who ‘screamed’ are silent. The people, the Genersls & the strategists who ask questions are villains. Towing line is ‘Nationalism’.
3/n #IndoChinaCrisis2020 I have asked a 100 questions covering 58 years, 1962-2020, but there are no answers. It’s extremely easy to split these 58 years into Congress & BJP & start a mud slinging match. It suits both, why? Simply because it splits 58 years and deflects attention

“Till that bend (PP14),where the clash took place,India has built a road.The point where the Indian troops retreated now is the point where the Army used to initiate its patrols.."
Technically army is 8km from PP14,barring 80 men in buffer zone #galwan…
“The Chinese are now claiming the entire Galwan Valley but this was not the case earlier. They transgressed when they saw culverts, bridges and roads being constructed this side...culminating in the June 15 violent clashes,"
The Indian Army, which used to patroll till PP 14 until the recent faceoff, could lose that right if a final solution is not found, said an official. The official said this was a cause of concern as the Chinese had entered well within the Indian perception of the LAC

I read Chinese actions in #Ladakh as a significant trespass across the #LAC aimed at gaining tactical advantage and strategic depth in certain vantage points along the LAC as for 1/n
e.g Depsang Plain (a wide unimpeded plateau) that offers access to the #AksaiChin as also in reverse to areas on our side, #Galwan Valley (commanding heights over the Darbuk-#Shyok-#DBO Road), #Pangong Tso 2/n
But not a fresh territorial dispute over new areas of the UT of Ladakh (where they are already in possession of the Aksai Chin and areas south and east of Kongka La plus the Shaksgam Valley illegally ceded by Pakistan) 3/n
