One Chi­nese vi­o­la­tion in Ladakh


The In­dian Gov­ern­ment signed Bor­der De­fence Co­op­er­a­tion Agree­ment (BDCA) with China on Oc­to­ber 23, 2013. As per ar­ti­cle VI of BDCA, the two sides agree that they shall not follow or tail pa­trols of the other side in ar­eas where there is no common un­der­stand­ing of the Line of Ac­tual Con­trol in the Indo-China bor­der ar­eas.

Since sign­ing of BDCA, Chi­nese troops have, on one oc­ca­sion, vi­o­lated the pro­vi­sion by tail­ing our pa­trol in East­ern Ladakh on June 2, 2014. A protest was lodged against this vi­o­la­tion in the flag meet­ing held on July 15, 2014, ac­cord­ing to the De­fence Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley who gave this in­for­ma­tion in a writ­ten re­ply to Anand Rao Ad­sul and Dhar­men­dra Yadav in the Lok Sabha re­cently.
