Is Indo-China war going to take place? SC's big statement

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has considered increasing the width of three roads related to Char Dham Yatra in Uttarakhand as important for the security of the country. Hearing an NGO's plea against the project, the apex court said the security of the country is the first priority. This cannot be ignored in view of the incidents on the border in recent times.

The apex court said that we do not want Indian soldiers to be in the 1962 situation, but the needs of both defence and environment should be balanced. In fact, the Central Government has sought approval from the apex court to widen the roads up to the China border by 10 metres. While one NGO is opposing road widening. It says landslides are on the rise due to the felling of trees in hilly areas. At present, as per the Supreme Court order dated September 2020, the width of these roads cannot exceed 5.5 metres.

The central government had filed a sealed envelope in the Supreme Court two days ago. It contained pictures of construction done by China. On behalf of the government, Attorney General KK Venugopal told the court that china is constructing airstrips, helipads, tanks, buildings for soldiers and railway lines. Therefore, trucks carrying tanks, rocket launchers and cannons may have to pass through these roads during wartime or emergency, so the width of the road should be 10 metres.
