Suspend Internet to curb terrorism, says Army chief

India said on Thursday that the status quo has not been altered at Doklam, where Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a stand-off for over two months a year ago, and rejected any suggestion to the contrary as "inaccurate and mischievous".

"It is most unfortunate that the Modi government has been caught snoozing while the Chinese have occupied the Doklam plateau as per news reports and satellite imagery and a planning a repeat of Doklam 2 type of face-off", Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala told reporters.

However, Rawat was skeptical about the Chinese soldiers returning back to Doklam.

Even though the Indian Army Chief is adamant that the infrastructure developed by China's People's Liberation Army in the Doklam Plateau is temporary in nature, NDTV has reported that a massive full-fledged Chinese military complex is being built within Doklam.

In a jibe, the Congress spokesperson said: "The Prime Minister has mastered the art of electoral rhetoric as he has failed miserably to ensure the protection of our borders".

Pointing to Rawat's harsh comments on the country, the state media in its editorial wrote:"Rawat said last week that India can't allow its neighbours to drift away to China".

He had reiterated that China's stand that the Sikkim section of the India-China boundary has been delimited by the 1890 "historical convention" between the then British government and China, which Beijing claims settled the boundary in that particular section spanning to about 200 kms.

According to the reports, China has taken some infrastructure development activities in the disputed region. "The (army chief's) statement is manufactured propaganda aimed to target Kashmir and Kashmiris", Sagar had said. The Chinese researcher further said that the response from the Government of India will show India's efforts towards unifying the two nations and the relations between them.

The standoff was resolved after Chinese troops stopped road building and India withdrew its troops from the area.

Surjewala said: "In October, Modiji announced at a public rally that Doklam issue as a victory".

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Bipin Rawat on Wednesday said though infrastructure development is still being carried out at Doklam near the China-India-Bhutan tri-junction area, the Indian Army is keeping an eye on it.

In a Facebook Live session at the ongoing Raisina Dialogue organised by Observer Research Foundation (ORF), Rawat said that people of Kashmir have come to know that it is not possible to secede from India.

However, General Rawat said Indian forces will face the PLA troops if they come again in Doklam.
