The Government of India has revealed that the Indian Navy had taken a bold step, immediately after the Chinese Army clashed with the Indian Army in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh on June 15-16! As the Opposition parties made an attempt to corner the Government over the China issue earlier this week, the Defence Ministry claimed that India had sent a warship as well to the South China Sea, shortly after the Galwan conflict! It is to be noted that Beijing claims most of the South China Sea as its own territory.
The Ministry further claimed that the Indian warship was in constant touch with the US Navy and the outcome of this strategy was also positive! China objected to the Indian vessel’s presence in the South China Sea at the diplomatic level…
According to a statement released by the Ministry, India had also sent a warship to the Andaman-Nicobar Islands near the Strait of Malacca, as the route is used by the Chinese Naval ships to enter the Indian Ocean. New Delhi is also planning to send submarines to this region, apart from installing sensors, in order to monitor the movements of Chinese vessels.
Meanwhile, the Opposition parties in India have expressed serious concern over missile bases set up by China near the Indian border in Doklam and Naku La. The Opposition leaders urged the Prime Minister to take strategic actions against the Chinese aggression in northern part of India. The PM has assured the people that the Indian Air Force has been regularly flying surveillance missions in this area to keep an eye on Chinese activities, both in Doklam and in the North-eastern part of the country.
