The Indian military believes that the country is currently more threatened by China than the Pakistani border. In view of this, the army has sent six divisions of the army stationed on the Pakistani border in Ladakh to the northeastern border. According to media reports, 35,000 troops have been transferred to the Chinese border so far. However, the exchange of troops has been going on for more than two years. Experts believe that there is more of a challenge on the Chinese border than on the Pakistani border and this has been done because of this situation. The new army chief, General Manoj Pandey, had recently given a clear message to China regarding the Line of Actual Control that any wrongdoing would not be tolerated. However, there have been more clashes on the Chinese border in the last two years and tensions remain high.
In its report, ANI quoted senior government sources as saying that about 35,000 troops had been deployed along the Chinese border in the past two years. Some of these soldiers were active in counter-terrorism roles under Pakistani auspices. According to reports, a division of Rashtriya Rifles has also been shifted from Jammu and Kashmir to counter-terrorism roles in East Ladakh sector. Similarly, the Assam-based division under the Gujraj Corps at Tezpur has been removed from its anti-insurgency role and placed under surveillance on the Chinese border in the northeast.
In fact, in recent days, China has repeatedly tried to infiltrate or force the border. On the other hand, the border of India and China with the Himalayas is also very long. That is why more troops are needed to protect it. At the same time, China has tried to change the stalemate by unilaterally deploying large numbers of troops against Indian posts. At the same time, India has decided not to accept any change in the LOC in this regard. Because of this, the Indian Army is balancing and reorganizing its forces.
