Amid simmering tension between India and China along Line and Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh, some suspicious Chinese activities have been noticed along Uttrakhand border.
Sources told Zee Media that a hut-like structure has been spotted recently near Tinkar-Lipu pass of Nepal in Chinese side. It is believed China is engaged in construction activity in Cinese side General Area Jojo village Champa Maidan. Notably, the Jojo village is around -8 kms from Tinkar-Lipu pass of Nepal.
As per security agencies sources, Nepal Prime Minister KP Oli is raising border issues with India on the instructions of China. Nepal is constructing more than 200 new border post at Indo-Nepal border. Currently, Nepal has 130 permanent border posts.
Indian Security agencies are closely monitoring the reports of mobilisation of PLA troops at Bhutan border and new constitution activities by China near Uttrakhand border.
Meanwhile, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to address Rajya Sabha on the situation along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh on Wednesday (September 16). Rajnath Singh will address the Upper House of Parliament at 11 am. It is to be noted that the Union Defence Minister had briefed Lok Sabha on India-China standoff on Tuesday.
