1) #Indian Air Force deploys Boeing CH-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopters at the Mohanbari airbase in Assam

Very useful for fast deployment of troops & equipment to remote areas in the borders with #China

One Chinook can transport up to 55 soldiers, can operate at 20,000 feet👍
2) On Thursday, the Chinooks were for the first time deployed for operations in the Vijaynagar sector of Arunachal Pradesh where they delivered 8.3 tonnes of essential commodities for the remotest part of the state.
3)The Chinooks are considered to be one of the best choppers for inter-valley troop transfer operations in situations like the one which recently happened in North Sikkim where Chinese came to Indian positions in large numbers.

Even as the Central government has never admitted it, #China had occupied 640 sq km of Indian territory in Eastern #Ladakh during the second term of the #UPA regime under Prime Minister #ManmohanSingh.

Photo: IANS (File)
In 2013, former Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran after his visit to the region had informed the government that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) patrol had set a new Line of Actual Control (#LAC), thus occupying 640 sq km of #Indian territory in Eastern #Ladakh.
The undemarcated #LAC came into existence when China in 1962 occupied Aksai Chin, an uninhabited high-altitude wasteland of the fmr state of #JammuandKashmir, and now part of the Union Territory of #Ladakh. The state was bifurcated into two Union Territories in August last year.

#THREAD: #Indian Army Chief Naravane’s 2012 prophecy on #Chinese strategy rings true in #Ladakh

Given that #India has been upgrading its infrastructure along the border with #China since 2014, some border friction is going to be the reality of the day…
In 2012, a member of the Army War College published a paper on China’s war zone campaign (WZC). Beijing would, the army officer argued, seek to coerce smaller adversaries into acceding to China’s demand through graded threat of force or actual use of force till its ends are met.
The officer, then Brigadier Manoj Mukund Naravane, wrote that the political objective of this Chinese concept is unveiled by “occupation of certain un-held tract of land or high value targets’. This would be done through elite forces.

With sweat & blood of thousands of #Pakistanis, peace has been restored in our tribal areas along the border with #Afghanistan.

But #Pakistan haters in #Kabul are hellbent on creating ethnic discord & lawlessness in our towns & cities with online spread of ethnic propaganda.

Objective is simple:

To fuel anti state misinformation in #Pakistan using millions of dollars in coordination with #Indian intel.

#NDS agents have laid an elaborate network & Imtiaz Wazir is their key operatives working as a go between of #PTM leadership & Afghan officials.

Other two officials who oversee international promotion of #PTM propaganda are ex Afghan Amb to #US Hamdullah Mohib currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Afghan President

While #India is frantically pouring billions of $$ to build as many dams as they can to stop water flowing into Indus,

#Indian influence operatives in #Pakistan are running campaigns to stop us from building dams to utilize water flows of Indus.



These fake water activists campaigning #NoDamOnIndusRiver have been exposed many times as #Indian agents, who poison #Pakistani minds in the name of #Sindh’s rights.

They’re paid & sponsored by #India to protest against #Pakistan’s effort to make policies on dam building.

Alchi Dam is one #Indian Dam on the #Indus river that was fast tracked to take advantage of the water flowing in the Indus River before it enters Pakistan while we delayed.

Why is it these activists campaigning for #NoDamOnIndusRiver do not object to Indian dam building?

Today liberal academics & leftist student activists are glorifying acts of terrorism by two student activists turned confessed #BLA terrorists as political activism.

It’s important to expose this heinous nexus between liberal academia, student activism & terrorism:

We must remember that #BLA is an internationally recognized terrorist organization:

Today I have brought a thread On The several dwipa(continents) mentioned in our ancient historical texts(#Mahabharat,#Ramayana purana etc ).The Puranic period was divided into Seven dwipas(continents).
They are described below👇
1. Jambu Dwipa: (almost present day Asia).. ..(1)
.. The name Jambu Dwipa has been derived from the Jambu (#Indian Blackberry) tree. Acc. to some of the ancient Indian scholars,it embraces the whole of the Northern Hemisphere,lying to the north of Salt Sea .Jambu Dwipa is surrounded by the Salt
Ocean ... (2)
.. & lies in the heart of the concentric sequence of the dwipas.This dwipa is further divided into sub-regions called varsas (Realms/zone)-the dwelling seats of rishis (observers). iLavrila (Pamir region) is the central varsa (realm) & the Meru (Pamir),...(3)

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.

Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was a ruthlessly power hungry despot, who single handedly destroyed #Pakistan’s industrial & economic base & bureaucratic institutions by introducing cronyism, political patronage & corruption in our society.

However, when we blame him for secession of East Pakistan we end up preventing the much needed catharsis that needs to take place in #Pakistan’s national evolution & it is an unintentional disservice to our progress of in nationhood.


Bhutto is guilty of a treacherous rejection of the Polish ceasefire resolution in December 1971, he is guilty of instigating the surrender of 30,000 soldiers in East Pakistan as a way to discredit Yahya Khan & pave his own way to power.

As part of the #TweetStormTuesday was thinking about the less obvious opportunities from the #COVIDー19 #pandemic

👇A thread on why #Indian #B2B #SaaS companies can make the most of this tragic situation and help usher #SMB companies around the world into the #digital age.
1/ In this world of #lockdown and #WFH governments everywhere have been proposing large #economic #StimulusPlan packages. #COVIDー19 has caught many businesses off guard.
2/ While industries like travel, hospitality and real estate were unfortunately predictable casualties, many small/medium sized (SME) companies across sectors have been disproportionately impacted. These companies have put off digitizing operations and are completely gridlocked.

Growth rate is key during a disease outbreak. The rate of growth in the the total confirmed #cases in #Canada seems to be showing signs of slowing and pulling away from the continued steep trend line seen, for example, in the United States (Green). #COVID19 #coronavirus 1/25
This is a +ve sign, but still very early to tell, esp. with an est. 1M+ #Canadians having just returned from travel, and #COVID-19 #testing only targeting >severe cases (due to rationing & backlog in lab testing), we don’t have a good grasp on the level of community spread. 2/25
The number of total cases is what we want to know, but the true number of these is not known. Not by us epidemiologists, nor by any other research, governmental or reporting institution. 3/25

Here is another PMLN MNA posting this video from Iran of #Afghan migrats as #Pakistanis Quarantined at #Taftan.

Strict criminal proceedings should be initiated against these opposition lawmakers who’re spreading panic among the people in these difficult #COVID19 times.

On the anniversary of #27FebSupriseDay when #PAF conducted a daring counter attack on #India with #OpSwiftRetort bombing them, shooting 2 #IAF jets & capturing #Abhinandan.

Let’s look at a hidden weapon of #PAF:
Saab 2000 Erieye AEW&C Aircraft

#Indians were extremely scared of this weapon being in the use of a highly professional #PAF & desperately protested with Sweden not to sell.

But #Sweden still sold 6 of SAAB-2000 Airborne Early Warning Control Aircrafts to #Pakistan, 5 with AEW&C systems & 1 as transport.

#Pakistan became 1st customer in the world, with option to purchase 6 S-2000 aircraft with ERIEYE AEW&C, but due to #Kashmir earthquake we reduced order to 4.

When #PAF inducted 4 S-2000s ERIEYE AEW&Cs in 2009, #India sponsored #TTP terrorists to attack #Kamra Base in 2012.

Lets take it through the numbers as to how relevance of #LIC in the #Equity Markets has detoriated. 1) #LIC puts in a net of 50-60k crores a year on an average. #MutualFunds in last few months hold 25-40k crores of cash and 8000 crores of monthly inflow through #SIP.
2) Total Value of #MutualFunds in #Equity has surpassed #LIC value quite some time back. 3) #SIP at almost 90-100k crore is double the money #LIC can deploy. 4) #EPFO averages 25000-30000 cr will soon cross #LIC. Thanks to it #SBI Nifty 50 ETF is now 66000 cr and largest #MF sch

Why #AshrafGhani undermined #TUTAP's protest and Appreciates #PTM

#TUTAP project was proposed by #ADB (Asian Development Bank) in #Karzai's tenure. As per this project, 500-KV would be supplied to #Afghanistan and #Pakistan considering the power crisis in the region.
In 2016 Second Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish spoke out against routing the #TUTAP projects through #Salang rather than #Bamyan. He pointed to a 2013 assessment prepared by #Fichtner, a #German engineering consultancy,
for the #ADB that recommended #Bamyan for the project’s second line crossing the Hindu Kush–a 500 kV transmission line. “The Bamyan route will avoid the narrow space and difficulties along the Salang Pass, will allow connecting further
