India strong enough to face China, says Centre
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
NEW DELHI, July 21(Agencies): The Centre has said the country is strong enough to face any incursion from China, after reports emerged of Chinese forces entering the Indian territory again.

According to media reports, around 50 Chinese soldiers riding on horses and ponies crossed into Indian territories in Chumar sector of Ladakh for two days on July 16 and 17, and carried placards which asked Indian forces to leave the "occupied territories".

The Army sources confirmed the incursion saying that Indian troops had intercepted a patrol party of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) in the Chumar sector and after the usual banner drill between the two sides, the PLA patrol went back into their territory.

"Whatever China is doing is very unfortunate. The government will definitely take it up with China and will protest. China needs to stop all such activities," said Congress leader Rashid Alvi.

But it gave another change to the Opposition to attack the government. "There is no leadership in this government and that's why such incidents are taking place. And the way China is trying to position itself in Pakistan, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, it's a warning for India, but the government is refusing to pay attention. We condemn this failure on the government's part," said BJP leader Prakash Javadekar

This is the latest incident of an incursion by Chinese forces into the Indian territory and comes within a month of Defence Minister A K Antony's visit to Beijing where the issue was taken up in the bilateral talks.

Last Wednesday, the government, in a major boost to the Indian Army's war fighting capabilities along the Line of Actual Control, gave the go-ahead for the creation of a corps including deployment of 50,000 additional troops along the China border.

In April this year, a platoon of Chinese soldiers had slipped across the border in the middle of the night. The stand-off became a major diplomatic tangle between the two countries.
