Defense Minister Rajnath Singh is expected to make a statement in Parliament today about the ongoing deadlock between India and Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh. Parliamentary sources gave this information. This statement assumes significance amid opposition demands for a discussion on the issue.
Rajnath recently met in Moscow with China's Defense Minister Wei Fenghe. A few days ago, Foreign Minister Jaishankar also met with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi. It was agreed on five points.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet and the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs may meet on Tuesday afternoon through video conference. Government sources have given this information.
In the Monsoon Session of Parliament, which started on Monday, the Opposition is not in favor of leaving any chance to surround the government on issues like India-China issue, Kovid situation, economic laxity and unemployment. On the first day too, the opposition surrounded the government on many issues.
Stress at LAC
Tensions are at an all-time face-to-face location along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. The five-point agreement between the foreign ministers of India and China in Moscow is not taking the name of the tension even after five days. The top level talks at the diplomatic and military level also do not seem to have a solution.
According to sources, the forces of India and China are standing on the LAC. The Indian Army is keeping an eye on everything in China. Unless there is no meaningful result at the ground level, the army does not want to relax security at the borders. In fact, even the border commander-level talks of the armies have not resolved the boundary dispute. It is believed that this conversation will continue for the next few days. The five-point consensus was to swiftly repel forces, maintain a fixed distance between armies, continue negotiations and follow all protocols and agreements regarding border management.
