This is a big concern at this point, as these run close to the 255 km Darbuk-Shyok-Daulat Beg Oldi (DSDBO) road, a vital link for the military.

India is “closely monitoring the situation and taking appropriate steps,” sources said a day after Army Chief General Manoj Naravane visited the Leh-based 14 Corps headquarters to review the “overall situation on the ground,” even as reports indicated that Chinese troops remain in areas along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh that is patrolled by India.

Situation remains tense at Pangong Tso, Galwan River, and Demchok. It is being closely monitored,” sources said, as more troops are being moved into the areas of conflict in Sikkim and Ladakh.

Chinese troops are maintaining positions at 3-4 points along the Galwan river, from “point 14 to Gogra mountain”.

At each of these points, the PLA has stationed troops, dug intents, and even bunkers. The situation has been escalating since initial incursions in mid-April after Indian and Chinese soldiers exchanged blows and inflicted injuries.

Another worry, said an officer previously posted in the area, is the fact that skirmishes took place at so many points, indicating a more coordinated push by the PLA.

Simultaneous incidents across the LAC in Eastern Ladakh at Pangong Tso, Galwan River, and Demchok are a big worry” the officer said, on condition of anonymity.

Normally stand-offs happen in a local area but are resolved at the local level,” a former Northern Army Commander, (who also asked not to be named), adding that the current situation, which indicates planning at a “higher level in China” must be resolved at the diplomatic and political level.

Mr. Doval and Mr. Wang, who are the designated Special Representatives of India and China, had met last on December 21, 2019, to discuss bringing an “early settlement of the boundary question” as per talks between Prime Minister Modi and President Xi on the issue.
