Here, China has also built a road near the LAC. “China asserts its authority over the entire aspila sector and, therefore, there is a lot of controversy about it,” he added. The chinese army has increased its movement in parts adjoining Arunachal Pradesh amid continued tension over the past few months, the source said.

They will be completely cut off from here for the next 3 months. “‘Winter’ is overshadowed by China. With tensions escalating with China in the McMahon line near Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, the army has begun preparations for a long confrontation in the winter season.
