Tibetan Troops on LAC: China has made a new move on the Line of Actual Control (LAC). It has deployed Tibetan soldiers to patrol the LAC in Ladakh and Arunachal. However, in terms of numbers, the number of soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army ie China is more. China has recruited Tibetans in the army to help the PLA in mountainous areas.
In 2020, there was a fierce clash with Indian soldiers on LAC. After this, China started recruiting Tibetan soldiers to help them survive in the high altitude areas. Security forces sources said that Tibetan soldiers are now seen patrolling the border along with Chinese soldiers. But the majority are still mainland Chinese soldiers.

In 2020, Chinese soldiers were defeated
Sources said that the Chinese have found it very difficult to establish themselves in the hilly areas for a long time. In 2020, during the occupation of the high peaks in the Kailash ranges by the Indian Army, several Indian Special Forces soldiers retaliated.
China recruiting youth from every Tibetan family
According to reports, China had issued instructions to its senior commanders to induct at least one soldier from each Tibetan family and make them loyal to the country as well as keep an eye on their families. However, sources said that a lot of resentment has been seen among the families affected by the Chinese move.
There is tension between India and China since April-May 2020. Since then both countries have increased the number of troops on LAC.
