New Delhi/June,18: After the bloody clash in the Galwan valley, New Delhi’s possible military action could include waiting for an opportune moment for a short-duration retaliation, reported “Tribune” on Thursday.
The military action could be a part of the larger economic, diplomatic and political steps the ruling BJP-led NDA combine may choose to take, said a senior military official. Prime Minister Narendra Modi while discussing matters with chief ministers of states said “Nobody should have any iota of doubt about this. India wants peace. But if provoked, India will give a befitting reply”.
A senior military functionary said war or even a short skirmish might not be the correct answer for now. As the LAC is un-demarcated, India can carry out its own action. In the Galwan valley, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China carried out an eight-hour action, killing 20 soldiers and injuring another 18, four of them seriously.
