Nehru's #AksaiChin Blunder! A must read. Both Indian & Chinese maps showed AksaiChin to be in India. In the 1950s Chinese built a road through Indian territory. Pt Nehru came to know but chose to keep quiet. Didnt confront China either. Historical blunders

Nehru's Aksai Chin Blunder
Nehru's Aksai Chin Blunder. 'Delhi was not concerned.' 'It would continue sleeping for several more years, with the result that Indian territory is still occupied by China today,' says Claude Arpi.

India Today has accessed Ladakh Tehsil map of early 1909 and Chinese official maps of 1893 showing #Aksaichin & Galwan river valley, Depsang etc to be part of Ladakh, India. Yet India did not press territorial claims effectively.

Ladakh Tehsil Revenue map of 1909, Chinese official maps of 1893 show Aksai Chin as part of Ladakh. Galwan River valley, where China has transgressed LAC in maps clearly part of Ladakh. @LtGenGurmit explains how China took control of AksaiChin in 1950s & now attempts to alter LAC https://twitter.com/IndiaToday/status/1266269286466588673 …

In 1960 Lt Gen SPP Thorat, then army commander eastern command after a year long assessment war gamed Chinese incursions. Exercise Lal Qila was conducted. Sadly professional military advice was ignored by VK Krishna Menon, then Raksha Mantri, I report
.........................................................
Lt-Gen Thorat's 1962 warning on Chinese intrusions went unheard
According to Lt-Gen SPP Thorat, previously, the only real threat against India which merited consideration was from Pakistan. To this now has been added the threat from China.

.........................................................

Chinese attack came exactly where Exercise Lal Qila war gamed. Both Krishna Menon (Nehru's favourite Raksha Mantri) & Lt Gen BM Kaul (Nehru appointed General) ignored professional military advise. Result was 1962 disaster. Nehru was shocked Menon didn't share Ex Lal Qila details.

But when professional military advice is taken India has given China "A Bloody Nose' like at #NathuLa in 1967. Barely 5 years after the 1962 setback & 2 years after 1965 war, Chinese tried to forcibly stop Indian army from erecting a fence at Nathu La. The Chinese MMG opened up.

Indian army troops not only silenced the MMG by hurling a grenade into the MMG bunker but the Indian artillery opened up with everything they had pin point targeting Chinese defences at Nathu La. By some accounts over 400 Chinese soldiers were killed & their 'white flag' came up.

Again in 1986 Chinese troops transgressed the LAC & days before border talks pitched tents in Sumdorong Chu (Arunachal Pradesh). India lodged a protest. More Chinese troops came in & built 'permanent defences'/structures. Gen Sundarji airlifted an entire Brigade across & deployed

The Chinese didn't know what hit them. They threatened India with a lesson worse than 24 years earlier in 1962. Chinese army started mobilizing. 20,000 troops+PsyOps. Gen Sundarji stood firm. Army & IAF undertook massive deployment Ops. Visible Stand off continued for over a year

With Indian army occupying heights, Chinese patrol remained trapped. After a lot of bluff & bluster China quietly sought permission to maintain troops and ultimately the Chinese withdrew. Some reports indicate top Chinese army theatre leadership was sacked after Sumdorong Chu Ops
