The conflict between India and China for the last nearly two months is ongoing. Meanwhile, the news of the evacuation of villages adjacent to the border has been dismissed by the Indian Army. Earlier, the news came that due to the ongoing tension with China, some villages and settlements along the border near Sikkim, such as Kupup, Nathang and Zurich, are being evacuated.
These villages are located within about 250 kilometers of Dokalam. Sources linked to the army have clarified that the villages have not been emptied either in Sikkim and there is no such proposal from the army.
Sources revealed that, China is constantly pressurizing India. At the same time, the Indian army is also preparing itself for any circumstance. They said that our soldiers have a strong base of artillery, rockets and other heavy-handed weapons.
Our soldiers are in the 'no war, no peace' at the moment, but they are able to respond faster if needed.
