It has been almost a year since the ongoing military standoff between China and India in eastern Ladakh, but there remains controversy. There have been 11 rounds of talks between the two countries so far, yet no solution to this dispute is seen. Meanwhile, in a recent conversation, the Chinese dragon has refused to repel his army from the Haat Spring and Gogra areas of Ladakh. Not only this, China has also told India that what India has got (retreat in Pangong area), it should be happy in it.

According to the report of the Indian Express, in the latest talks at the level of the Corps Commander on 9 April, China has refused to withdraw its troops from Hot Spring, Depsang Maidan and Gogra Post.

According to highly placed Indian sources, China had earlier agreed to withdraw from Hot Spring’s Patrolling Point 15 and PP-17A and Gogra Post, but later refused to back down. China has said that India should be happy with what it has achieved. He said that the platoon-level military has been deployed by the Chinese Army at the Petrolings Point 15 and PP-17A, which was earlier the company level. The Indian Army platoon consists of 30 to 32 personnel. At the same time, there are 100 to 120 personnel in an army company.
The source said that there is no need of a road to come to this area. They arrive very soon and at this time they have penetrated deep into Indian territory. He also said that in the last two to three years India has never reached Finger 8 of Pangong Lake. He said that the Indian Army has not been able to reach its traditional patrolling area in Depsang since 2013. Chinese soldiers are constantly preventing Indian soldiers from patrolling.
