Contradictions emerged on the Doklam issue, as the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) dismissed reports that Chinese troops were still present there and termed them as “inaccurate” and “mischievious.” The denial came just one day after Army Chief General Bipin Rawat had confirmed that Chinese troops were still present at Doklam. In a statement on Thursday, Raveesh Kumar, the official spokesperson of the MEA, dismissed reports of Chinese troops re-gathering, saying the status quo at the site has not been altered. “Subsequently, in response to repeated questions about any change in the status quo at the face-off site, government had stated that there was no basis for such imputations. Government would once again reiterate that the status quo at the face-off site has not been altered,” he said. The statement however seems to contradict what General Rawat had said just a day earlier, at a geo-political conference in the Capital. In his address at the conference, General Rawat stated that Chinese tents, and ...

Congress to beef up presence in urban areas 17.1.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
