Over a month ago, China agreed to pull back after a tense 70 face to face standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the Doklam plateau, located near the strategic chicken neck area. But that was only temporary, as it is now being reported that they have restarted the road construction on the Doklam plateau – but 10 kms away from the original site which is still Bhutan’s territory. Apparently all the original equipment and manpower have been moved to that location. India is now again pushed to a corner to take defensive action to both protect itself and Bhutan.

In recent weeks, China brought in labor, materials and equipment to build a road on the China, Bhutan and Sikkim (which is India) junction. The Indian Army prevented at least part of this road getting built as they felt it was on Indian soil – it is only doing its duty. So China gets upset and destroys bunkers (cheap tricks), India can always return the favour. China stops the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra in Tibet which is under Chinese occupation. Hard to predict the future, but India is aggressive and refuses to back down. Chinese knows all too well that there are enough missiles and nuclear weapons pointed at them. So China – better watch out!
