India and the Busharaf fraction in China

I'm sad in the sense that two great Asian powers can't live with each other and accept each other. That there is a small fraction in Chinese security who desire a more confrontational approach with India.

On the other hand I'm satisfied that I have been vindicated about the importance/primacy of the INDIAN ARMY, and that as things stand currently China's String of Pearls is still merely an existential threat. The immediate threat comes from the mountains, and jungles of the NE. Further that the BJP government made a strategic mistake of curtailing the MSC in favor of yet another White Elephant Aircraft Carrier project on the orders of London Sahib.....which may or may not  be completed by 2025.

Hari Ohm Shanti......नम्र.

China hand in NE insurgency?

NSCN (K), which claimed to have carried out last week's attack on Army convoy in Manipur killing 18 soldiers in Manipur, may have unilaterally ended its ceasefire with the Indian security agencies at the behest of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), according to a senior government official.

Sources in the government on Monday claimed that the chief of Ulfa's hardline faction Paresh Baruah had, on the instructions of some senior PLA off-icers, prevailed upon S S Khaplang to withdraw from the ceasefire agreement with the Indian government in March this year.

While Khaplang is said to be based in Taga in Myanmar, Baruah is ensconced in Ruili and Kunming, both in Yunnan province of China.

Chinese PLA officials are said to be in touch with both Khaplang and Baruah. Even Myanmar authorities had recently arranged for Khaplang's treatment for a medical condition after consulting the Indian government.

There are intelligence inputs that former officer of Chinese PLA Muk Yan Pau Huang is running an illegal factory of assault rifles at Pangwa in Kachin province of Myanmar, set up earlier by an ex-leader of the Burmese Communist Party named Tin Ying. The arms manufactured here are apparently supplied both to Myanmarese rebels as well as Indian insurgent oufits including the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang).

There are at least two dozen insurgent groups operating in the northeast and most of them have bases and training camps in Kachin province of Myanmar.

Both Khaplang and Baruah help the insurgent groups in procuring arms and ammunitions.

In the worst such attack in three decades, insurgents had on Thursday ambushed a military convoy in Manipur's Chandel district killing at least 18 army personnel and
