Chinese media calls India a bully, says it controls Bhutan, Nepal

No confrontation between Indian, Chinese troops in Arunachal Pradesh

India has objected to the construction, and has deployed the Army to prevent it. Interestingly, it was reported in Ladakh frontiers, also part of the J&K state. As the Indian army resisted, scuffles broke out. After Chinese troopers found their path blocked by Indian soldiers who formed a human chain, they began hurling stones, prompting a swift retaliation by Indian border guards.

The review comes at a time when the India-China standoff over Doklam has been intensifying, and may signal the onset of a strategic trade war as tension on the border worsens and concerns about trade imbalances and security increase. "There was a scuffle between the two sides, which included some stone-pelting as well, after Indian soldiers blocked two attempts by People's Liberation Army troops to enter Indian territory at the Finger-4 and Finger-5 areas early in the morning". Both sides stuck to their stated positions.

The situation was brought to control after customary banner drill. The report, however, said the army refused to confirm the incident.

The stand-off lasted 30 minutes, after which the forces pulled back. The five BPM points along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) are at Bum La and Kibithu in Arunachal Pradesh, Daulat Beg Oldi and Chushul in Ladakh and Nathu La in Sikkim. Red Army has tried blocking developmental activities in Chumarr, Depsang and Pangong Tso, in the last few years. The Chinese Vice Premier will inaugurate the construction of the erstwhile nine-storey Royal Palace, which China had pledged to rebuild after it was devastated by the quake in April 2015, official sources said.

The minister, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government had no choice but to act to stop the Chinese road activity in the region because it had come too close for comfort.
