New Delhi: A video of the conflict in the Galwan valley of eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) has been released by China.
Intended to be Chinese propaganda ‘exposing’ India’s aggression at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh, the video had the opposite effect as it revealed the bravery of an Indian Army officer and his soldiers who courageously confronted the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops and inflicted casualties on them.
The identity of this Indian Army captain rank officer has not been revealed at the request of the Indian Army but his bravery was mentioned on Republic Day. This officer of Bihar Regiment hails from the Senapati district of Manipur and joined the Indian Army in the year 2018.
In the video, he can be seen leading his men during the struggle in the Galwan Valley against the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China. To prevent incursions into Indian territory, he can be seen in the video moving towards Chinese PLA troops in an aggressive manner despite being unarmed.
The video was released by China on Friday and has gone viral on social media. China has released this propaganda video, accusing the Indian Army of taking an aggressive stand. In this video released on social media, China has alleged that due to the aggressive attitude of the Indian Army, there was a clash with the Chinese PLA in the Galwan Valley.
Chinese propaganda plans backfire
In the Galwan Valley last year, on June 15, soldiers of the Indian Army’s Bihar Regiment, under the leadership of Colonel Santosh Babu, inflicted heavy casualties on Chinese PLA soldiers who had illegally entered Indian territory despite not having any weapons.
The Chinese PLA soldiers, who were more than three times the number of Indian Army soldiers, had iron rods, pointed sticks and stones and sharp weapons in their hands.
The brave Indian soldiers, who were fighting for hours without arms, were forced to retreat without any weapons, and the 20 Indian soldiers, including Colonel Babu, were martyred while foiling the Chinese army’s plans to build an illegal post in the Galwan Valley.
