China Conditioned India To Break Canal For Removal Of Tents

According to multiple sources, China has removed tents from Indian controlled Demchok area set up during the India visit of President Xi Jinping in September 2014. Face off between Indian and Chinese civilians over setting up of 9 tents in about 70 square kilometer area during the visit of President embarrassed Modi Government.

As per highly placed sources China agreed to have removed tents only after India gave into Chinese condition to abandon and destroy irrigation canal being built in Demchok area by locals to irrigate grassland for rebos. The head works for canal was almost complete while small water channels were being built well within Indian borders. Chinese PLA has long been objecting to the Rs 3 crore irrigation project taken up under the Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Program (AIBP) run by Union Water Resource Ministry.

Chinese PLA has actively supported their civilians to set up tents just before the India visit of their president. As per sources the matter was also taken up during the flag meetings at border. India and China has held 18th Special Representative (SR) meetings recently under Border Dialogue to resolve boundary dispute.

Ironically, China has built heavy infrastructure across the border in their controlled area while it objects to small water channels to irrigate grassland necessary for rebos.
