Listen to the news
The article stated that the failure of the PLA on the Indian border would have far-reaching consequences. The Chinese military had initially told Jinping to insist on outscoring opponents in the army and recruiting loyalists. Apparently, the result of this will be that some big officers will fall.
The important point here is that due to this failure, China's ruler Xi Jinping will be agitated to take another aggressive step against India. It is worth noting that Jinping is also the chairman of the Central Military Commission of the party and the leader of the PLA.
In early May, China's troops advanced south of the Line of Actual Control (LAC), a temporary border between the two largest countries in Asia, in three different areas in Ladakh. The border is not fixed here and hence the PLA keeps penetrating the border of India. Infiltration has increased more since Xi Jinping became General Secretary of the party in 2012.
India was shocked by the border incursions in May. Cleo Pascal of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies said that Russia had told India in May that China Beijing's frequent maneuvers in the autonomous region of Tibet were preparing to hide in the region.
At the same time, India was stunned by the intrusion of China into the Galvan Valley on 15 June. It was a well thought out move and 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a skirmish with Chinese soldiers. It was the first clash in the last 45 years between the world's two most populous countries.
It is an old habit of Beijing to infiltrate disputed areas. At the same time, Indian leaders and jawans have been mentally paralyzed by the defeat of 1962 and therefore remain protective on the border. However, this did not happen in Galvan Valley. 43 Chinese soldiers died in this clash. At the same time, Pascal said that this figure could be more than 60. Indian soldiers fought bravely. On the other hand, China has not described the damage done to itself.
