China commented on India in Bhutan dispute

Beijing : On Wednesday China Accused India of having a “‘secret motive”” as they observed that the Indian troops had stopped the soldiers to build a road in Dong lang. This is the region of a dispute with Bhutan, which is still going on.

Keeping up its aggressive posturing on the stand-off, the ministry said the “liability” for resuming the suspended Kailash Mansarovar Yatra lay with India, which should correct its “errors”.

Mansarovar yatra hits Chinese wall

BEIJING: China on Tuesday lodged protests in Beijing and New Delhi against Indian soldiers’ “trespassing” into its territory and indicated the Mansarovar Yatra would remain suspended till India “withdrew” its troops.

The ministry of foreign affairs made it clear it would leverage the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, a major confidence-building measure between the two neighbours, in the standoff along the Line of Actual Control in Sikkim.

In a late-night statement, China cited an 1890 treaty signed between the British-Indian government and the then ruling Chinese Qing dynasty on Sikkim to say India was violating rules established 127 years ago.

The statement by the ministry of foreign affairs (MFA) said according to the treaty, the border region contested by India is located on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Have better options than surgical strikes: Rawat

NEW DELHI: India has more effective options than surgical strikes to deal with Pakistan, chief of army staff General Bipin Rawat told HT in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

“Pakistan thinks it is fighting an easy war that’s paying them dividends, but we have options (other than surgical strikes) that are far more impactful and effective. Our army is not barbaric. I don’t want to (collect) heads because we are a disciplined force,” he said, referring to the decapitation and mutilation of two Indian soldiers on May 1.

The army chief was circumspect about the United States designating Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist. “I will wait and watch to see if Pakistan truly reins him in, because he was issuing a calendar of protests on the very day he was designated,” he said.

Rawat also alluded to the fact that while there was an official bounty on the head of Lashkar-eTaiba founder Hafiz Saeed, it did not lead to any crackdown on the militant leader or his outfit.

On holding peace talks with Kashmiri leaders, Rawat was categorical that “dialogue can happen only when there is peace”. “The army has a job to do. We have to ensure that peace returns. I’ll hold talks with a person who assures me that my convoy will not be hit. The day that happens, I will personally hold a dialogue,” he told HT, sitting at the army headquarters in Delhi.

“We will soon implement this in Connaught Place as part of the smart parking initiative. There will be no cap on the parking charges. People will have to pay up ~20 for every extra hour even beyond the five-hour limit. Earlier, even if anyone parked for 2-3 days, they paid only ~100,” a senior NDMC official said.
