Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Tibet amid ongoing border tensions with India. This is Jinping's first visit to Tibet in a decade after taking office. According to China's government agency Xinhua, Jinping visited the Nyingchi city of China adjacent to the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh to take stock of the situation. Not only this, but President Jinping also inspected the dam being built on the Brahmaputra river. China is building the world's largest dam here. On the other hand, India is strongly opposing it.
China is building a huge dam on the Brahmaputra river
According to the report of news agency PTI, President Xi Jinping arrived at Nyingchi's airport on Wednesday. After this, the Chinese President inspected the valley of the Brahmaputra river and its tributaries. China is preparing a plan to build a 60-gigawatt dam on the Yarlung Tsangpo or Brahmaputra river, which is considered very sacred from Tibet to India. Experts say that the dam being built on the Brahmaputra river will generate three times more electricity than China's Three George Dam. Along with the rail, China is also repairing the roadway. It has recently constructed a strategically important highway through the Brahmaputra river valley. This highway connects Medog County, which shares its border with Arunachal Pradesh.
bullet train started
Chinese President Jinping's visit to the Arunachal border comes at a time when China has recently started operating a fully electric bullet train for the first time. This bullet train will connect the capital Lhasa and Nyingchi. Its speed is 160 km per hour. Chinese President Xi Jinping said some time ago that the new bullet rail line will play an important role in securing border stability.
After the antics of the dragons in Badahoti, the security agencies on the Lipulekh border were also on alert
At the same time, Indian security agencies in the China border with Pithoragarh district have become alert after the activities of dragons increased along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Badahoti of Chamoli district in Uttarakhand. Security agencies have also increased vigil from Nabhidhang to Lipulekh. However, no movement of the Chinese army has been seen on the Lipulekh border. The border is completely calm, but the border is being closely monitored.
The area from Munsiyari to Dharchula's Lipulekh in Pithoragarh district is bordered by China. Security agencies have increased surveillance along the China border adjoining Pithoragarh district after information about increased activities of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) personnel in Chamoli's Badahoti.
According to information received from sources, contingents of Indian security forces are patrolling day and night in a radius of eight to 10 km from Nabhidhang to Lipupas. Along with vigilance, the soldiers of Indian security agencies have also increased patrolling.
A year ago on this border, Chinese soldiers had dared to show flags from their border towards India. Chinese soldiers also took an objectionable stand on the construction being done on the Indian border. Since then, Indian security forces personnel were stationed on this border even in minus 30 degrees temperatures in winter.
