India's political environment makes it easier for politicians to confront China than improve ties with it. Modi has opted for confrontation with China, with the consideration that by challenging China, the Modi government can maintain India's influence and hegemony in South Asia, it said. Personnel from both sides received minor injuries and the situation was brought under control after the customary banner drill under which both sides hold banners before stepping back to their respective positions. However, they were interrupted by the Indian forces and were sent back. Indian media said the Chinese army had this year declined to participate in ceremonial meetings usually held to mark Independence Day on Tuesday. The Indian soldiers had formed human chain to block Chinese infiltration.
After almost 30 minutes of facing off, the two sides retreated to their positions, he said.
China has repeatedly asked India to unilaterally withdraw from the Doklam area, or else face the prospect of an escalation.
These developments have further escalated the ongoing tensions between the two countries which are already locked in a two-month standoff over Dokalam. The border trouble began in June when Chinese soldiers started to extend a road through the Doklam territory - known as "Donglang" in Chinese.
But Beijing has said India had no role to play in the area and diplomatic efforts to defuse the crisis have not made much headway.
A source in New Delhi told Reuters, Chinese soldiers carried iron rods and stones. The report said the worst that has happened earlier was an isolated slap or pushing between soldiers from the two sides.
Even though the Chinese didn't respond till Monday, the Indian Army officials were keeping their fingers crossed hoping for a last minute miracle. The area is disputed between China and Bhutan.
