October 6, 2017: A month after India and China ended a tense border standoff at Doklam near Sikkim, it has emerged that the People’s Liberation Army has begun constructing a road about 10 to 12 km from the site where the two armies were locked in a faceoff for 73 days.

Army sources confirmed that the PLA was constructing a road in Chumbi valley but added that the area was under Chinese control and the development did not have strategic implications for India. Around 500 soldiers are present in the area where the road construction is being carried out.
In Doklam, China had accused India of trespass and preventing its troops from building a road in the remote Himalayan plateau that is claimed by both China and Bhutan. The 73-day standoff ended with withdrawal of troops and China removing road-building equipment.
The sources said, “The same equipment and workers are being used to strengthen an existing kutcha road about 10-12 km from the last faceoff site. The area is under their control.”
