The Indian Army has been "very well prepared" and China is unlikely to try any "misadventures anymore", said Indian General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Army Command of the Indian Army, Abhay Krishna on India's army day on Monday, India's Economic Times reported.
Earlier in the day, Congress accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj of misleading the nation over Chinese troops occupying Doklam plateau, claiming that Indian security and strategic interests have been compromised.
New satellite imagery has revealed that China is building an enormous military complex just miles from the site of their 10-week standoff with the Indian military along the Doklam Plateau over the summer of 2017. "But we are also there, so in case they come, we will face them". They have carried out some infrastructure development which is mostly temporary in nature. "But while their troops may have returned and the infrastructure remains, it is anybody's guess whether they would come back there, or it is because of the winter they could not take their equipment away", Rawat said during a session in the multi-lateral "Raisina Dialogue". The Army chief's remarks come in the wake of media reports about carrying out some infrastructure development in the disputed region.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday dismissed reports of Chinese troops regathering near Doklam and said that the status quo at the face-off site has not been altered.
The face-off situation that had arisen in the Doklam region a year ago was resolved following India-China talks.
China's stand on the issue was explained by You Dongxiao, an associate professor with the International College of Defense at the National Defense University of the People's Liberation Army, in a column in Xinhua writing why he thinks the country's troops are not likely to back down from the stand-off.
Surjewala said the Congress has always maintained that there can be no political viewpoints on Doklam and the sole criteria needs to be "national interest", which needs to protected at all costs.
"Under such background, the unconstructive remarks by the Indian senior official (Rawat) not only go against the consensus reached by the two heads of state but also do not conform to the efforts made by the two sides to improve and develop bilateral relations", Lu said.
However, India has built up their forces in Sikkim, the province that borders both China and Bhutan.
