China is building a second bridge on Pangong Tso: MEA confirms

It was recently uncovered that China is building a second bridge on the unlawfully seized Pangong Lake’s banks. It has been the victim of illegal colonization since 1960, and India’s external affairs minister, Arindam Bagchi, stated in one of his speeches that India is one of the few countries that has never allowed such an illegal invasion of its territory.

China’s ambitions to build bridges across Pangong Lake to rebuild its previous bridge have sparked numerous theories.

These are both old and new bridges being built in areas that have been under Chinese authority illegally since the 1960s. “It has been made plain on numerous occasions that the union territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir are regarded essential portions of India,” he continued, “and foreign countries are always expected to respect India’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.”

Other types of security measures in existence in the country are notable because they are protected. Bagchi went on to claim that the Indian government has improved the border and brought in new infrastructure, especially after 2014, when roads and bridges were erected. The administration has always maintained the kind of integrity or respect that the Indian territory and its people deserve by ensuring the preservation of the borders and infrastructure.

The government is committed to developing border infrastructure not only to meet India’s geopolitical and strategic needs but also to drive economic growth and development in all of these regions and to improve the country as a whole. And the government must be on heightened alert or keep a close eye on all of these developments that have an impact on Indian territory,  predict trends in Indian security systems and operations, and take all necessary efforts to protect the country’s territorial integrity and respect.

According to a trustworthy report obtained on Friday, China is building a new bridge across the Pangong Tso in Ladakh‘s eastern region, which will be the country’s second bridge. According to the Indians, the LAC map, which stands for Lack of Actual Control, is located more than 20 kilometers east of the location. There are various rumors in the media concerning this bridge because so many people have inquired about it. Some call it the “so-called bridge,” as if it were a separate structure, while others claim it is the second bridge or an expansion or extension of an older structure.

Bagchi believes that the Ministry of Defense is the better option since it is better positioned to alert the public about all of the incidents that have been documented. He also believes that the state should keep a watchful check on such developments or constructions and keep up with any news about them.

The second bridge erected alongside the first is a bigger structure that China aims to build or has already begun to build, according to a report from a high-level defense group, and work on the second bridge was completed in the last few months? The senior military institution officer also indicated in the report that the second bridge should be seen as a temporary structure built to allow for repairs on the first bridge.

 It caused a lot of havoc, but it was considered at the time that the first bridge was a permanent structure and the second one was only a temporary structure for better convenience. After all of this, it has been said that the new bridge that has been constructed is the permanent bridge, while the first one that has previously been constructed appears to have been constructed solely to assist in the construction of this bridge.

China is claimed to have recently completed the first bridge in the area. The new bridge was erected more than 20 kilometers from the Line of Actual Control, according to the sources indicated above (LAC).

Damien Symon, a geospatial intelligence expert who analyses Chinese activity along the LAC, shared satellite photos of the new site on Twitter. A “larger bridge” has been built beside the previous one, as per Symon, who goes by the handle @detresfa_, to support “more movement” (of the troops) over the lake.

According to Symon’s aerial shot, the bridge was built simultaneously from both ends. The bridge will halve the distance between Rudok’s depths and the Pangong Tso area near the LAC. The eastern Ladakh battle will take place on May 4-5, 2020. India has requested that the situation be restored to its pre-standoff state.

India and China have had 15 rounds of military talks so far in an attempt to resolve the eastern Ladakh dispute. As a result of the talks, last year the two sides completed the disengagement procedure on the north and south sides of the Pangong Lake, and in the Gogra area.

India has been consistently maintaining that peace and tranquillity along the LAC were key for the overall development of the bilateral ties.

The first bridge, which was visible in satellite photographs and was around 400 m long and 8 m broad, was believed to have been built for the moment of security reasons and security forces between the south and north banks of the Pangong Tso. Because of the continuous standoff in the eastern half of the Lata, the north and south points have been the most affectionate later spots there in the previous two years, and then in February 2021, both sides of the lakes pulled troops back from some of the friction points.

The second bridge, which is being built alongside the first, is expected to be built only to allow passage between the north and south banks of the lake, and will most likely accept all forms of military equipment, including tanks. Because various assumptions have been made regarding its function, there is still major ambiguity about the second bridge. After all, one bridge already exists.

Officials and the Indian government have provided different explanations and decisions as to why the bridge was built. China has not committed to building a similar bridge across the same lake. One component of this situation is being confirmed by reports.
