In first winter stay, 1,800 Chinese troops camping at Doklam
NEW DELHI: Around 1,600-1,800 Chinese troops have now virtually established a permanent presence in the Doklam area, near the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet trijunction, with the construction of two helipads, upgraded roads, scores of pre-fabricated huts, shelters and stores to withstand the freezing winter in the high-altitude region.
Indian security establishment sources said while India "achieved its strategic objective" of not letting China extend its existing road in Doklam (or the Dolam plateau) southwards towards the Jampheri ridge, the fallout has been "the almost permanent stationing of People's Liberation Army (PLA) troops in the region".

Increase troop readiness and have anti aircraft missiles positioned all over Indian border. Build more roads and supply depots for prolonged warfare in convenient but hard to destroy locations at forward posts.

India is donig now what it should have done in 1959 after Chinese usurped Tibet. It will take time to catch up but if Modi stays in power another 10 years the situation will stabilise !
