LAC standoff: ‘Communication channels in Changtang, Durbuk, Nyoma near Ladakh completely cut off’
6/19/2020 12:04:22 AM


New Delhi, June 18: The border conflict with China along the Line of Actual Control on the intervening night of June 15-16 has been a point of highlight about how the diplomatic ball is rolling in the South Asian part of the world.
The death of 20 brave soldiers of the Indian Army and the bloodshed in Galwan Valley near Ladakh is by far the biggest military event after the Kargil War of 1999. It is to be noted here that territorial issues with China has in the past led to a full-blown war in 1962.
In the latest development, an official from the Ladakh administration said that communication channels in several areas close to LAC have been cut off, so much so that it has been difficult to even contact the local councillors.
“Several areas close to Line of Actual Control, including Changtang, Durbuk and Nyoma are completely cut off from communication. We are unable to contact our councillors in these areas,” Gyal P Wangyal, chairperson of the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, said.
He further hoped that the Indian Army would give the Chinese forces a befitting reply for the bloodbath along LAC.
“I pay my tributes to the 20 soldiers who attained martyrdom guarding our borders. People of Ladakh stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Indian Army. We hope that our Army will thwart the Chinese conspiracy along the border,” Wangyal said.
Meanwhile, the Indian Army clarified that there are no Indian troops missing in action in wake of the border conflict with China.
Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar on Thursday clarified that Indian soldiers who were involved in a violent clash with the Chinese military in Galwan Valley were carrying arms as a standard practice. He said that the Indian security forces, when attacked by China’s People’s Liberation Army, did not use arms because of a long-standing practice. “Let us get the facts straight. All troops on border duty always carry arms, especially when leaving post. Those at Galwan on 15 June did so. Long-standing practice (as per 1996 & 2005 agreements) not to use firearms during faceoffs,” Jaishankar said.
