🚨🚨Breaking: Chinese military is demanding that #India withdraw its troops from China-India border in order to avoid further escalation of tension. - Reuters
This was the clash just a few months ago between #China and #India at the #GalwanValley that kicked things off.
That Chinese soldier was leaking from his head, I doubt he made it. We still to this day don’t know exact number of casualties.. there’s been conflicting reports on that.

So govt supported think tank, gave platform to @China_Amb_India to lambast us. Tell us on r face that our slogan of non violence is pretense. That our brave soldiers died in #GalwanValley not only because they were aggressors but also they couldn't match the PLA. Not only
Retd Indian diplomats & journalists sat there listening to heaps upon heaps of allegations, none mustered courage to ask d Chini envoy which #LAC he was referring to. Mutually agreed 1993 or unilateral 1959? If its 1993, then is @MEAIndia lying abt no violations?
#LadakhBorder
And the brave ambassador also told us with statistics on his fingertips, why any kind of economic war will hurt India more. All the while insisting that Chinese want to build trust and they are never aggressors #IndiaChinaFaceOff

#India has slain more than 100 #Chinese soldiers in #GalwanValley, claims @yangjianli001 , a former #Chinese soldier

This article via @StevenWMosher is a mighty interesting find

Deeply embarrassing & humiliating for #CCPChina if the info is correct
newscast-pratyaksha.com/english/india-…
"President Xi Jinping is worried that if the information regarding the soldiers, killed in the Galwan valley, is disclosed the serving, as well as the retired soldiers, can revolt. Not only this but even there can be a rebellion, even from within the communist party."
Jianli Yang accused that the Chinese government is not willing to disclose the information regarding the Galwan Valley conflict, in his article written for the newspaper Washington Times.

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

Is it possible to "dramatize" even a #War against any #Country to stop their businessmen from having any access to #Indian #5G #Market?!

Is this entire #Drama of #War against #China & #AtamNirbharBharat is to keep #Huawei #5G out of India till #MukeshAmbani captures the Market?
Is , in the guise of #AtamNirbharBharat, the King of #CronyCapitalism in #India, conspiring to centralize whole Indian Money & Market in the Hands of his favourite State Players?

Is #AtamNirbharBharat ONLY against one country, or against all other Foreign Investors as well?

India's envoy to China @VikramMisri has done an interview with PTI. Some quick takeaways & new points:
* "India hopes China will realise its responsibility in de-escalation and disengaging by moving back to its side of LAC"
* Only way to resolve military standoff along LAC is for China to stop erecting new structures.
* China has to stop the practice of transgressing and trying to erect structures on the Indian side of the LAC
* China should stop creating obstructions & hindrances in normal patrolling by Indian troops.
* China's claim of sovereignty over #GalwanValley completely "untenable", such exaggerated claims are not going to help.

TREAD : Who will emerge as a winner in this INDO-CHINA fight-Comparison with 1962 war

The current ongoing border crisis with China is getting worsen day by day. India has already started tightening its seat belt to tackle the dragon in best way. The first Indo Chinese war 1/9 Image
took place in 1962 between 20th October and 21st November. India lost this war to china. You might have a question in mind today that what will happen if India china border tension escalates. We are comparing the planetary conditions of 1962 war and current time which show 2/9
stark differences.

The ascendant lord Venus was in the sign of Scorpio initially but it retrograded back to libra in 6th house. This shows the inherent weaknesses in our countries approach at that time to tackle China. Sun who is the karaka for governments and leadership is 3/9

A thread on #Galwan treachery of #PLA

Apart from being a watershed moment for #XiJinping's & #CPC's reputation in #China, the PLA's treachery is a big blow to their own morale!

In short : PLA minions were prepared, yet suffered more losses!
Long version : continue reading
1/7
PLA's failed attempt to scare away Indian troops from #GalwanValley coincided with the 67ᵗʰ Birthday of Xi Jingping (15 June). It is evident some sycophant PLA General's plan to please the #CPC Gen Secretary (总书记) backfired and blew in PLA's face.

2/7
Genesis of this issue is believed to be due to PLA temporarily removing a camp on the bend of the Galwan river post de-escalation talks but re-establishing it on 14 Jun. Col Santosh Babu, Commanding Officer led a patrol on 15 Jun, but to his dismay finding belligerent troops!3/7

#indiachinastandoff THREAD:
Our & Chinese army have been in standoff for almost 2 months now. There are 3 locations where two armies are face to face right on LAC (and in some cases even beyond that).
1. Galwan Valley (Patrol Point 14)
2. Hot Springs
3. Pangong Tso
1. #GalwanValley
Galwan valley is of very high strategic importance to both India & China. It is the gateway to Aksai Chin which is claimed entirely by India but occupied by China. Galwan valley was one of the major battles of 1962 war.
#indiachinastandoff
Interestingly, post-1962, there have been no military face-offs vis-a-vis the region. That is, until now. Around 15th June, this region blew to headlines after deadly brawl between Indian and Chinese troops. There is no official breakdown of events, so let's look at the issue.

The man behind the soldier:

5 of 20

Hav (Gnr) K Palani

State: Tamil Nadu (Madurai)

Age: 40

Survived by Parents, brother, sister, wife, a son and a daughter

Oh where do I begin about this man!

1/n

#GalwanValley
#Martyrs Image
I felt sad reading about the others but I wept reading about his life.

You see Palani belonged to a very poor family. As a teenager, he aspired to join the army and did so once he finished his twelfth standard exams.

#GalwanValley
#Martyrs Image
He was the eldest son of the family and had responsibilities that had to be taken care of.

And he did it too.

He first got a BA for himself through distance learning mode. Next he foot the bill for his younger brother's education, who btw has joined the Armed forces too. 3/n Image

#GalwanValley which has been in the eye of the storm was the backdrop for another standoff prior to the 1962 Indo-China War. It began in July 1962 when 400 Chinese soldiers surrounded the Indian post in the valley. India lodged a protest with China....
The Indian post with a strength of approximately 50 was besieged by a much larger Chinese force. India reiterated it's claim over #GalwanValley
PM Nehru who was "holidaying in Kashmir" was kept informed of the situation. Meanwhile China lodged a counter protest, alleging Indian intrusion on their territory.
