India No Match to China's Border Infrastructure Development

India and China have been involved in multiple stand-offs on the disputed LAC in eastern Ladakh for the past 18 months. Both countries have also forward deployed their forces on the entire India-China border. Latest satellite images reveal that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army is constructing a bridge in eastern Ladakh connecting the north and south banks of Pangong Tso – one of the five stand-off points – to reduce the distance between the PLA garrison at Kurnak fort and the south Bank’s Moldo border point. Currently, the PLA has to take a roundabout route crossing Rutog County to reach these two points. But the bridge, on completion, would reduce the distance between two points by almost 140 km.
