India concludes its territory extends right up to Finger 8, which establishes that India might not move back. It isn’t accessible to the state that India would withdraw to behind Finger 3. Moreover, there also stands a military site of India army.
Furthermore, Indian armies never get restricted in the area before May this year when the Chinese were at Finger 8.
Instead, India made it clear that Chinese should go back to where they were in early May referring to Finger 8. As the Chinese moved first, they should be the one who take steps backwards.
Although there is a vast trust drought, would the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops stay at Finger 8 when India moved its troops back? There is no guarantee at all.
