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,

Time to be highly Alert :
If Chinese Army came with Spears and sticks, it's not because it doesn't have rifles, it's because it wanted to. This is the same Army which has one the most sophisticated arsenal in the world. Yesterday stunt, IMO:
1. Guage India's defences, locations..
..reaction time etc. Most importantly, how far they let the enemy come before they take action. Getting IA to fire, was a great achievement on part of Chinese.
2. PR exercise. Since yesterday Chinese media is busy propagating how it was just patrolling the area and Indian ...
..forces fired upon them. The image is soldiers without rifles helps their case.
3. Reaction from county. China very minutely judges Indian media and public’s response to any action. It’s media immediately catches on to things it can exploit to start anti gov propaganda ...

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

India has a military edge due to many reasons including geography as I showed your boss @HuXijin_GT via my tweet thread a few days ago. Our leaders know it, so do yours which is why they are calling for disengagement

Recent mobilisation facts : You moved 4 Mech Division...

against us last week. This is in addition to 6 Mech Division that you started the fracas with. How did you start ? You expanded the scope of your summer exercises in Tibet and used 3/4 times the forces that you usually exercise with. Then under cover of exercise your 6 Mech

broke off and made a mad dash to Ladakh. Its constituent brigades (all arm brigades) went to 3 different areas including Samzungling opposite #GalwanValley Galwan. You thought you would catch us by surprise and roll down the valley. But you were stopped #galwanvalleyclash
