New Delhi: China has been eyeing Ladakh for a long time.
China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) wants to occupy the region, but has not been successful due to India’s tough stand.
PLA soldiers have violated the Line of Actual Control (LAC) several times. They have been given befitting replies by the Indian Army on many occasions. The last of these occasions was last week when an Indian Army lieutenant smashed the nose of a PLA major with a powerful punch during a confrontation in the Nathu La region of Sikkim.
Ladakh is very important for China from a strategic angke as well as economically. This is because it is said that the mountains here are full of precious metals like uranium, granite, gold and rare earths and China is keen to obtain them.
Gogra Post has ‘Golden Mountain’ right next to the dispute where frequent confrontations between Indian and Chinese soldiers take place.It is said that there is a lot of gold reserves on this mountain, due to which the dragon is repeatedly engaged in such actions.
Along with this, high quality uranium reserves have been found in many areas of Ladakh. With which nuclear power as well as nuclear bombs can be made. In 2007, Germany had taken samples of some mountains in Ladakh, after examining that it had a deposit of 5.36 percent uranium, which is higher than uranium found elsewhere in the country. After this China has been eyeing this place and it wants to occupy it under any circumstances.
Uranium is used for nuclear bombs
Recently Chinese experts have suggested increasing the country’s number of atomic bombs to 1000 in the midst of increased tension with the US. According to an estimate, China currently has about 260 nuclear bombs.
If China has to make 1000 nuclear bombs, it will need uranium on a large scale. In such a situation, China can achieve great success in increasing its nuclear bombs by extracting uranium from here.
Gold and silver deposits on Arunachal border
China has excavated gold just 15 kilometers from Upper Subansiri district in Arunachal Pradesh. The Chinese have found this gold deposit in the village of Yulamed in Tibet. It is said that a lot of gold, silver and rare earths have been found from this area, which is worth about $ 60 billion.
China has made tunnels to extract it and thousands of trucks are transported here after excavation. China has also built a network of roads and airports throughout the region.
