Chinese soldiers also clashed with herdsmen. After all, how dare China? How did they dare to set foot on our land? Will PM Modi give a clean chit to China this time too and say - no one has entered. The government should give a strong message to China on this nefarious act."

He said, "See how our local people are showing their bravery in front of the PLA claiming that the area they are stopping is our nomad's grazing land. PLA stopping our nomads from grazing in our territory. Seems it is never a never-ending process due to different lines of perceptions. But I salute our nomads, who always stand to protect our land and stand as the second guardian force of the nation."

He further said, "No doubt that our forces are always with civilians resolving the grazing issues with the PLA, it's all because of their support that our nomads could bravely face the PLA."
