Can India conduct cross LAC strikes against China?: Lt Gen DS Hooda answers

Can India conduct cross LAC strikes against China?: Lt Gen DS Hooda answers

India and China have been engaged in a tussle at the LAC in Ladakh since May 2020.

After the tussle turned violent in Galwan valley, leading to casualties on both sides, talks have been underway but no headway has been made.

The Defence and Foreign Ministers of the two countries have also met in Moscow to discuss the border situation.

The Chinese Army has made several aggressive moves, attempting to change the status quo unilaterally in the past few months.

Each time Indian forces have responded in equal measure to push back the Chinese.

Indian Special Forces also managed to capture key strategic heights on the Southern banks of Pangong Tso in late August, giving Indian forces a key advantage.

So what are the options on the table for India to tackle China’s nefarious designs at the LAC?

Lt General DS Hooda(Retd) tells Hindustan Times’ Aditi Prasad that India has the option of using special forces across the border.

He added that if the situation arises, India has the ability to carry out cross-LAC operations.

BJP slams Farooq Abdullah’s Article 370 & China remark, says it’s ‘seditious’

BJP has lashed out at National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah over his recent remarks on the abrogation of Article 370 in the valley and the Chinese aggression at the border. BJP said that Abdullah’s statement that China’s aggression was linked to abrogation of Article 370 sought to justify the transgressions by the Chinese Army and added that his claim that they would try to bring back the special status with help from China amounts to ‘sedition’. Addressing the media, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also said that Farooq Abdullah was a habitual offender and had made similar statements in the past as well and questioned how an elected Member of Parliament can make such statements. Sambit Patra also said that Farooq Abdullah was not alone in making such statements and added that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has also made similar statements. Patra said that both these leaders are two sides of the same coin and have a soft corner for Pakistan & China. Watch the full video for all the details.

India-China 7th round of Corps Commander-level talks: All you need to know

India and China are holding the 7th round of Corps Commander-level talks to reduce tension along the LAC that has been festering since May 2020. The Indian side has been demanding comprehensive disengagement at all flashpoints and restoration of status quo ante of early April, 2020. China on the other hand wants India to withdraw from all strategic heights on the southern bank of Pangong Tso. Indian forces had taken an aggressive stand and occupied several strategic heights on the southern and northern Pangong lake area preempting Chinese attempts to take them over. After the 6th round of talks, the two sides released a joint statement agreeing not to send any more troops to the frontline. The seventh round of talks would be the last one to be attended by present corps commander of Fire and Fury Corps Lt Gen Harinder Singh. The two sides have been engaged in a tiff along the LAC with China attempting to change the status-quo several times. A violent faceoff also took place between the two sides in the Galwan valley on 15th of June, 2020. Watch the full video for all the details.

Trump vs Biden: Decoding who won Debate 2 to swing undecided voters | US polls

Over 5 crore people in the United States of America have already voted ahead of physical voting day on November 3. However, pollsters believe that there are still some people undecided ahead of the elections. The second and final Presidential debate was seen as incumbent Donald Trump's outreach to some of these people in order to strengthen his support base. Experts believe that he missed out on flaunting his economic track record which was only recently marred by the Covid-19 pandemic. The latter is believed to be his weakest point, and also the biggest target of criticism by challenger Joe Biden. So who won Debate 2? Former Indian ambassador to the US, Meera Shankar and Foreign Editor, Hindustan Times Pramit Palchaudhuri discuss the question with Hindustan Times' Aditi Prasad.
