China has reportedly been constructing border defence villages near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Uttarakhand, according to sources. This development comes amidst the ongoing border standoff between China and India. The border villages, consisting of around 250 homes, are being built approximately 11 kilometers away from the LAC.
The purpose of these villages is presumed to be enhancing China’s presence and control in the border region. The move raises concerns about China’s intentions and its impact on the security dynamics in the area. The construction of these border defence villages indicates China’s proactive measures to fortify its positions and assert territorial claims. India has been keeping a close watch on such developments and is expected to address the issue diplomatically to ensure border stability and security. The situation underscores the continuing tensions and complexities in the China-India border region.
