After Ladakh, the Chinese army has started making noise along the border of western and central Bhutan. Geo-political reasons Bhutan is a very important place for India. So India also has enough headaches.
China claims 318 square kilometers on the western edge of Bhutan and 495 square kilometers along the border with central Bhutan. The Chinese army is building roads for the movement of troops in those places. Despite the conflict with India in Doka La in 2016, China has not stopped sending troops to Bhutan. Even after the Doka La conflict, the Chinese army has penetrated at least 40 kilometers in 5 places in western Bhutan. The PLA is slowly building helipads and heavy traffic.
The PLA entered the Bhutanese border on August 13 by crossing the Torsa canal in the same manner as Ladakh. The king and queen told the herdsmen to move away from the area around the lake. According to media reports, China has started surveillance by installing surveillance cameras and other sophisticated equipment in North Doka La.
