Barely a month since the stand-off with India at the Sikkim border, the Chinese army is found constructing a road on the Doklam Plateau, just 10 km from the location of the last conflict.
A shamefaced NDTV, that had joined chorus with other corporate channels a few weeks back to promote the manufactured lie that China has backtracked from Doklam, reported on October 5, “Thwarted in its last attempt, China has now shifted its unused road construction material North and East of the face-off site. Road construction workers brought into the area are accompanied by upto 500 soldiers though there are no indicators that these soldiers will be permanently based in the area - the Chinese town of Yatung, which is less than 20 km away as the crow flies, is a few hours by road and accommodates them. Neither are there signs of permanent structures to accommodate Chinese soldiers in the area which is snow-bound and bitterly cold in the winter”
