India has deployed more than 36,000 troops along a disputed Himalayan border, according to local sources.

But "both on the Ladakh and NEFA fronts, Indian troops" were continuing, the paper stated, "to fight heroically in the face of overwhelming odds", having been "heavily outnumbered" and facing an "overwhelming superiority in fire power".

After negotiations which lasted almost three weeks were resolved on May 5th, both sides withdrew their soldiers.

The neighbours have blamed each other for the high-altitude battle. Though reports claimed casualties on the Chinese side as well, Beijing is yet to make an official statement on the same. "Whatever activities we may be carrying on have always been on our side of the LAC, so the Chinese need to stop activities to alter the status quo", he added.

But, despite all of the above, India has not stopped its construction work in the area, and has even sent in nearly 1600 workers to accelerate the road projects on the disputed border.
