A local politician from Ladakh claimed the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) stopped Ladakhi nomads from grazing in Indian territory. Chushul Councillor Konchok Stanzin on Tuesday alleged that Chinese soldiers engaged with Ladakhi nomads and stopped them from grazing in Indian territory.
Situated in the Leh district, Chushul Councillor Stanzin shared a video purportedly showing Chinese soldiers in PLA armoured vehicles talking to nomads, who could be heard arguing in Tibetan that they have been grazing their livestock at that location for a long time.
Taking to microblogging site X, Stanzin wrote, “See how our local people are showing their bravery in front of the PLA claiming that the area they are stopping is our nomad’s grazing land. PLA stopping our nomads from grazing in our territory. Seems it is never a never-ending process due to different lines of perceptions. But I salute our nomads, who always stand to protect our land and stand as the second guardian force of the nation.”
“No doubt that our forces are always with civilians resolving the grazing issues with the PLA, it’s all because of their support that our nomads could bravely face the PLA,” the Chusul Councillor added.
There was no official response from the government till the filing of this report. News18.com couldn’t independently verify the authenticity of the video. It was not immediately clear when and where the purported incident took place
