Leh: The Chinese PLA was seen constructing a road near the borders of Himachal Pradesh’s Kinnaur district. There has been no dispute in this area so far.
Villagers in Charang village in Kinnaur district of Himachal have observed development and road construction along Chinese border in Tibet in Khimkulla Pass areas of tango and Yamrang, which are near Charang and Chhitkul areas on the Indian side.
China could offer this new avenue to its troops along the international borders near Himachal Pradesh in event of a conflict with India.
An analysis of the latest satellite images from July 15 show road construction work at the last Tibetan village in the region. Dibang village, locally known as Tang, is located almost 30 km from the international borders.
There was neither any road ahead of this location until June last year, nor is there any PLA post anywhere ahead in the entire area.
The new construction was first noticed by foot patrols from the ITBP post in Charang Khas village to Yamramg Pass.
