SRINAGAR: Questioning the critical rants of Kashmiri leaders over the presence of Indian troops in the state, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday asked as to why they didn’t have anything to say on Chinese incursions on the Line of Control (LoC).

“How is it that Kashmiri leaders who have so much to say about Indian troops in J&K have nothing to say about Chinese troops across the LoC?” Omar said in a tweet.

According to a report, the Chinese PLA troops, in a fresh transgression in Ladakh, entered six kilometres deep inside Indian territory near the Pangong lake area earlier this week.

At least 11 PLA personnel, led by a Colonel-rank officer, entered in four vehicles across India’s Thakung border post on March 8 and were “countered and engaged” by an ITBP patrol after which they backtracked.

Chinese PLA troops entered almost six km deep inside Indian territory near the scenic Pangong lake area this week, leading to a stand-off between security personnel of the two sides.
