Lt Gen vs Pro-China lobby
 
Lt General Gurmit Singh, PVSM, UYSM, AVSM, VSM ( Retired) is a Former Deputy Chief of Army Staff. He was Corps Commander at Srinagar and Additional DGMO. He is also a Distinguished Fellow at CLAWS and is a well known face on TV Debates & Seminars as an Defence Expert.
 
As most of us know, while the Indian Army has officially said that the Chinese PLA has moved back by 1-2 kms from the flash point at Galwan, a pro-China lobby within India has tried to lampoon the Indian Army and official position of India with unproved claims and insinuations. They have repeatedly towed the Chinese line in the recent incursions by the PLA and have undermined the efforts and sacrifice of the Indian Army.
 
In a 12-point rejoinder, Lt General Gurmit Singh (Retd) has exposed the pro-Chinese cabal including the likes of self-proclaimed defence experts Ajai Shukla and anchors like Karan Thapar.
 
In his rejoinder, Lt. General says the assertions of Ajai Shukla that government briefings as untrue, that LAC has shifted several kilometers Westwards and that there has been no Disengagement are matters of national security. Saying that his points are from the Chinese Deep State, Lt. General points to Ajai Shukla's other allegations like: Chinese have intruded 2.4 Kms; or that the Entire Buffer Zone will be set up in Indian Territory; that Chinese are refusing to vacate Indian Territory and that the Indian Troops have been pushed back.
 
He then says that such confusions and doubts are being planted by the Chinese. The target of such allegations are the government, Army and the Media too, he says. The government version is brushed aside as misleading the media or as putting pressure on the Army. The Army version is lampooned as a sporting line given by the NSA. The media version that is not to his liking is charged as no culture to question the Army, writes the Lt. General.
 
Lt. General then says that accusation of Intelligence Lapse or Operational Lapses are 'Total, Absolute & Accusative Lies'. He then questions the anchor Karan Thapar as one who supports such accusations as he had thanked Ajai Shukla for 'Speaking Truthfully'. How can the anchor know if Ajai Shukla's assertions were Truthful/ Lie/ Concoctions/ asks the Lt. General.
 
He then says that such people are part of China Proxies and are Anti India. 'Just an OGW - Over Ground Worker', says the Lt. General.
 
Writing about the situtation at the LAC, Lt. General writes "LAC Clarification is still Unfinished Process between India and China. Attempt to Exchange Maps with Respective LAC marking of East Ladakh failed in 2002. Negotiations & Discussions still to be done", he tweeted. Since these matters are still Sub Judice still, Ajai Shukla's assertions may jeopardizes the Process, writes Lt General Gurmit Singh.
 
He finally tweets about his background on the matter in order to provide his credentials to speak on the matter. He wrote that he was Director China in Military Operation Headquarters from 2000, has Researched Two Years on India China Border Issue between 2004 and 2006, has Visited China Seven Times from 2000 to 2012 as part of Annual Dialogues and Military Delegations. He also wrote that he has done a course at Taipei, Taiwan in PLA and PRC.
