According to reports, in April-May last year, China deployed more than 50,000 troops in eastern Ladakh amid ongoing conflict between India and China. After this, there were ongoing negotiations between the two countries regarding the deployment of troops in the Pangong Lake area and despite the withdrawal of limited troops, China kept a large number of troops deployed.
According to media reports, citing sources, “China has called in new troops from the hinterland to replace the troops present there over the past year. About 90 per cent of the troops have been withdrawn as part of the relocation.”
The reports further said that the reason for this rotation of troops is that Chinese troops have been badly affected by the extreme cold and other related issues facing the Lat latitude areas. Previously, even during deployments at the Friction Point in the Pangong Lake area, Chinese troops were rotated on an almost daily basis to high-altitude posts. This severely restricted their movement.
India withdraws 40-50 per cent of its troops every year
