The chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Pema Khandu, said on Tuesday that Indian troops will give anyone who tries to intrude into “our” territory a befitting reply, a day after reports of yet another face-off between Indian and Chinese armies along the disputed Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Arunachal Pradesh surfaced.

According to an official statement released by the Indian Army on Monday, the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) of China and the Indian Army battled last week on December 9 in the Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh, resulting in wounded on both sides.

The Sino-Indian War of 1962 has passed. Our gallant warriors will respond appropriately if anyone dares to violate, Khandu wrote on Twitter.

The 1962 conflict, which eventually came to an end after China agreed to a ceasefire, caused significant losses on both sides along the international border in Arunachal Pradesh.

The CM continued, “Yangste is in my assembly constituency and I meet the jawans and people there every year.

Khandu has already drawn comparisons between the current state of affairs in Arunachal Pradesh along the LAC and the conflict of 1962. When addressing at a memorial for a soldier who died in the Sino-Indian War in October 2020 and when honouring war martyrs last month, he made comparisons.

The environment was substantially different in 1962. The region’s infrastructure was in terrible shape. In spite of this, the Indian Army fought valiantly and gave thousands of its soldiers’ lives to defend our homeland. On November 21, Khandu stated, “However, we are not where we were in 1962.

“The region has experienced remarkable infrastructure growth during the past eight years, especially along the border. In addition to helping the general public, it has greatly improved the Indian Army’s logistical support and presence, according to him.

On Tuesday, Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, verified the incident in the Yangtse region of Arunachal Pradesh and told the Parliament that Chinese troops had attempted to unilaterally alter the situation along the disputed border.

Our troops resisted the Chinese attack with firmness and resolve. The Indian Army heroically stopped the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) from invading our territory and forced them to return to their stations during the ensuing physical altercation, Singh remarked in the Lok Sabha.

The two sides have been engaged in a prolonged border combat in the strategic Ladakh section of the LAC between the PLA and the Indian Amy.
