India set to retaliate Chinese provocation; deploys T-90 Bhishma tanks in Galwan valley

Ladakh: India has prepped up to retaliate any Chinese provocation at the Galwan valley as the tension escalates between both the countries.

In a recent development the Indian Army has deployed six T-90 missile firing Bhishma tanks and top-of-the-line shoulder fired anti-tank missile systems in the Galwan Valley sector.

The army’s decision comes after Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) had beefed up its positions on the river bed with armoured personnel carriers and troop tents. The Indian Army is occupying the dominant heights in the sector within its side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Meanwhile, Corps Commander-level meeting between armies of India and China has started in Chushul on Tuesday, to resolve the ongoing dispute over Chinese aggression along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh area.

Lieutenant General Harinder Singh, commander of the Leh-based 14 Corps, and Major General Liu Lin, commander of the South Xinjiang military region will lead their sides in the third attempt by both the countries to de-escalate tensions.

This is the third round of Corps Commander-level talks being held.
