Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat on Saturday said people protesting the celebration of Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama’s birthday on July 6 in eastern Ladakh couldn’t have reached the Line of Actual Control  without the knowledge or backing of the Chinese.

On some Chinese in civvies recently having showed a banner to residents of Ladakh near Fukche, Gen Rawat said, “Anytime when civilians come forward, there will be PLA .” The banner hoisted by the group read ‘Ban all activity to split Tibet’. The LAC is the defacto boundary between India and China.

The Army Chief denied any intrusion. “Let us clear this perception. There has been no intrusion. We need to dispel this talk of intrusion… we have very good working relations with China.”

Gen Rawat said on the Indian side too if civilians moved towards LAC, they were accompanied by ITBP or Army. “We don’t allow civilians to go to LAC unmonitored,” the Army Chief said.
