Chinese intrusion motivated by trade interest : Dr. Jitendra

Jammu, April 23 (Scoop News) –Warning that the latest Chinese intrusion by People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in the Daulat Baig sector in Ladakh region should not be taken at its face value, BJP State Chief Spokesperson & National Executive Member Dr. Jitendra Singh said here today that if earlier the predominant motivation behind Chinese intrusionary designs was to gain strategic advantage in the region, the recent intrusions are motivated primarily by a strong trade interest and are a part of a far-reaching Chinese game-plan with serious implications.

Dr. Jitendra Singh went on to explain that Ladakh shares a 646 kilometer border with China in the form of LAC and if China is able to trespass through Indian territory it will be able to gain easy and direct access to neighbouring countries like Tazakhistan and Afghanistan. He said China is a fast growing economy desperately looking for easily accessible gas resources to meet its requirements and is therefore looking for a possible route through Ladakh.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said the intrusion on 15 April in Daulat Baig area collaborates this contention because this area is itself a part of the traditional route which was used for trade purposes in medieval times and the place Daulat Baig was also named after a 16th Century nobleman Daulat Baig Oldi (DBO) who was on a trade journey and had descended from Karakoram pass to this area where he died enroute. The Chinese are tacitly seeking to revive centuries old traditional route via India to achieve their business interests in 21st century, he added.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said that Ladakh is not only the symbolic crown of India but also a natural strategic shield against any possible foreign aggression from India’s northern borders but this natural shield has been rendered helplessly vulnerably by China’s repeated aggressions which go unchallenged because of a casual response from the Indian side. Referring to China’s bullying tactics to intimidate India’s defence barriers, Dr. Jitendra Singh mentioned another incident a few months back when PLA troops threatened the Indian contractor and the Indian labour, and made them flee from the site of an Irrigation Project in Nyoma block which is coming up under the centrally sponsored Border Area Development Programme (BADP). Only sometime back, some of the PLA persons came on a horseback into the Indian territory to brow-beat the local inhabitants, he said and added that serious armed intrusions by Chineses have taken place in July 2012 as well as August 2012 with no retaliatory reaction from India side.
