Dear Gobhi ji , u may be a corporate stooge, a rival of the Congress party, employee of Adani, Ambani, frnds of tax evaders and loan defaulters and what not..

But when it comes to the Security & integrity of India,u have to act like the PM & not a coward

The #GalwanValley was,is & should always be part of India,20 soldiers were martyred trying to throw enemy out of it, thousands spent their lives protecting this land and keeping incursions away.
The Chinese incursion is a serious matter, dont Live in denial
Indias integrity is challenged, its not time to hide or let the enemy win. If u are the son of the soil, if u are a true Indian, if ur blood is warm b boils at any attack on the nation, if ur heart beats for India, dont run away from this situation

#Exclusive China has captured 60 sq km of Indian land according to Government Sources . #laddakh #ChinaIndiaFaceoff
Government sources conservatively estimate that the PLA has captured more than 60 square kilometres of Indian-patrolled territory in the last month -- equally divided between the northern bank of the Pangong Lake and the Galwan River sectors.
Chinese troops now block access to several Indian 'Patrolling Points' (PPs) along the LAC, which Indian army patrols have regularly visited for decades to assert their claim over the area.

#China-#India stand-off at Laddakh & consequences 4 #Pakistan

What I think of new tension?

🇨🇳’s move into #Laddakh & establishing a hold over Galwan river valley comes after 🇮🇳 coerced Nepal by encroaching it’s border territory & reviving Kalapani dispute.

China says that #India actually encroached in its territory. The similar holding over of river valley led to 1962 war between India and China.

What strategic compulsion weighed in behind the Chinese move?

A) What immediate reasons?

1. 🇮🇳 ’s aggressive behaviour re Nepal reviving Kalapani dispute, indirectly implicated 🇨🇳-es interest.

2. Post Aug 5 annexation of IOK w/ 🇮🇳-n intention 2 turn Laddakh into union territory rattled 🇨🇳 that 🇮🇳 is materially changing status of th region contested by🇨🇳& 🇵🇰.
