We are heading back to bipolar/multipolar world, is it good/bad 4 int community only time will tell. Wht we r certainly seeing is more aggression on part of nations, specially 1 thats tryin 2 go into bipolar world or makin presence felt thts #China
They (China) are becoming more n more aggressive and we share land borders with them. Its time for us to start looking at our strategies as to how we are going to deal with the two borders... aggressive adversaries, Pak on Western front & China on the North: CDS Gen Bipin Rawat
We need to also start looking at transformation for the betterment and ensuring the national security architecture that we want to evolve is capable of handling the threats that are emerging. To do this we need jointmanship amongst all the security forces: Gen Rawat at @iicdelhi

-Who gives away strategic territory❓
-No I’m not talking about POK
-It’s Katchatheevu
-A strategic Island in Palk Bay
-Island was owned by Raja of Ramanathapuram & later part of Madras Presidency
-In ‘74 it was ceded to #SriLanka by #Indian PM Indira Gandhi
#IndianNavy @Swamy39
-The agreement with #SriLanka was haphazard
-Didn’t specify fishing rights
-#Indian fishermen did fishing around Katchatheevu & used Island for services
-In ‘76 EEZ’s were established & fishermen were restricted
-But more than fishing it has many other implications India TV News

1/3 News of DEADLIEST #Rafale coming to India in Jan 2022 is followed by news of #PK expanding it’s NUCLEAR arsenal with more warheads. Apparently right now they hv abt 165 warheads. They also use “tac nukes”. So how is INDIA planning to make RAFALE deadlier?
2/3 India specific enhancements incld radar enhancements, Israeli helmet-mounted displays, low-band jammers to towed decoy sys, engine capability for "cold start" frm high-altitudes like #Ladakh. Our video with @mjavinod sir on Rafales.
3/3 Once India gets 36th Rafale in Jan, all the Rafales will undergo “software certification”, ostensibly. And what are “tac nukes”? These r tactical nukes, in simple words smaller versions of actual nukes, which one of the PK minister hd described as nukes weighing in grams. 😄

@TwitterIndia does not have a local resident grievance officer as required by law in #India
An address in San Francisco and a US email address is 'local' for @jack but not for Government of India where sovereign laws and not Jack Company rules apply.
Meanwhile, after apologising and correcting distorted map of India previously @Twitter cocks a snook again. It shows #Ladakh as part of #China ; #JammuAndKashmir as separate country.
This is no mistake. This is deliberate distortion by @jack Company to dare Government of #India
Actually, @Twitter is a habitual and serial offender. It continues to compound its offences while hiding behind bumkum on #FreeSpeech
No worries, @TwitterIndia can run but it cannot hide.

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?

Firstly, the Range has not been vacated yet.
Secondly, it’s a threat to Chinese only if they are also deployed there and planning to move ahead. If they’ve moved back then we are just sitting there in middle of nowhere twiddling thumbs! We aren’t an endless resources nation. The
deployment has to match its value in threat perception. There’s a reason we don’t place soldiers on every inch. Limited resources have to be employed effectively. The Mutual disengagement means that the overall threat perception from both sides is reduced in South #Pangong and
overall #Ladakh region.
Making Chinese step back from F4-5 to F8 and assurances of dismantling infra, plus ushering in a stable environment in South Pangong should be considered a major diplomatic win. Every critic was saying this will become the new normal now. It did not,

Our territorial claims are known by our map; Has the "Tibetan Govt in exile", which Indian hawks want India to recognize as the "Govt of Tibet", ever accepted in word or deed, that it's the true boundary between India and Tibet? Has any other country in the world (except Bhutan)?
2/tibet 👍🏼👏👏👏 (incidentally the US has also, directly or indirectly, accepted our boundary in NE). Question mark still remains about #Tibet-#Ladakh boundary!

5) Hoped that #COVID19 would result in mass deaths, didn't happen 6) Hoped that #shaheenbagh would trigger violence & bad press, didn't happen 7) Hoped that a #Covid19vaccine in India would not be created or available, not happening 8) Hoped for terrorist attacks, didn't happen
9) Hoped the Chinese incursion in #Ladakh would make India blink, didn't happen 10) Now at their wits end, desperate, THEY are hoping that the #FarmerBill2020 #FarmersProtest would trigger violence, didn't happen 11) THEY are now hoping to trigger violence by entering #Delhi city

22 Indian Soldiers died in Galwan, Thousands are standing at -21 Degrees temprature to Protecting out motherland. 1,50,000+ Indian have lost lives due to Chinese Virus. This is certainly not moment sing proses for CCP Genocidical tyranny unleashed on the world in COVID-19.
Its not only ridiculous but also insensitive to praise an enemy country for which 20 of our men died & lakh plus innocent killed coz nazi party like CCP cudnt control its biological experiments in Wuhan lab and bolt the virus in. CCP must be tried for crime against Humanity.
Dear Citizens,

Because Someone's already paid for It"

- In my opinion, this 'must not vacate Kailash range' is another charade being spread to show return to status quo ante as in April 2020 as compromise of national security by the Modi government.
