Why is China becoming so aggressive with India? 
 
The ties and relationship between China and India have always been weak. China and India are considered to be the fastest growing economies in the world, which is why both the countries see the other as a fierce competitor. 
 
Relations between the two countries have often been characterised by border disputes, which have resulted in three major wars – the Sino-Indian War of 1962, the 1967 Sino-Indian skirmish, and the 1987 Sino-Indian skirmish. Now, the Chinese troops in Ladakh are preventing the Indian Army from patrolling along the border, which is considered India’s territory.
 
This comes a few days after the Indian troops launched its patrol called ‘Tiranga’ from the Trade Junction area in northern Ladakh for two posts along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
 
Although the Indian army was carrying out its tasks in the Indian border, it was stopped by Chinese troops, who claimed that the land belongs to China. Since April 2013, the Indian army has been trying to launch the patrol for these forward bases. In fact, the army tried to launch the patrol 21 times, succeeding in the mission only twice. 
 
On July 27, 2013, during a Border Personnel Meeting, India raised objections to an observation tower that was being built by the Chinese troops on the LAC in Demchok-Fukhche sector. Although the construction was taking place on Chinese land, Indian troops claimed that it was a violation of the Peace and Tranquillity Agreement signed by the two countries in 1993, which clearly states that no construction should take place at the LAC. In fact, it is said that the observation tower is being constructed to keep vigil on Indian troops.
 
The reason for the animosity between China and India can be traced back to the age-old border disputes. Every country wants to expand its land for greater political and economic power. Even India and Pakistan are entangled in this turmoil with regards to Kashmir. 
 
Recently, the Chinese government accused the Indian government of interfering in Bhutan’s elections, which resulted in the toppling of the ruling party. China claims that India tried to play politics with its petroleum subsidy to bring victory to the opposition People’s Democratic Party. 
 
This has robbed Beijing of the opportunity to extend its market to Bhutan and get closer to the Indian border. This is the reason why China has recently become more aggressive than usual. 
 
China claims that India is treating Bhutan as a protectorate, which impacts China in a negative way. China has tried its best to create allies in the region, especially around India, to rise higher and above India, both politically and economically. 
 
This is the reason why China has forged friendship with Pakistan and Burma, two countries that share borders with India. Also, it maintains cordial ties with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. If China manages to win over Bhutan, India will not have any allies in the region. This will slowly but surely result in India’s downfall because China will be able to attack India easily through its allies. And this way, China hopes to become the leading economy in Asia. 
 
Countries form and break alliances, based on their political agendas. Countries that are allies today can become enemies overnight; this is the harsh reality of the political world. To gain power, countries become aggressive, just like how China has become aggressive with India, because China views India as a threat to its economic and political development.
