What is the root of Doklam controversy
Geographically, India is situated on the threshold of China and Bhutan Border, which is only 15 kilometers from India’s Nathula pass. Dokalam, located in the Magnetic Valley, is strategically important for India and China. In 1988 and 1998, between China and Bhutan, there was a settlement that both the countries would work towards maintaining peace in the Doklam region.
In the year 1949, there was a treaty between India and Bhutan, in which it was decided that India will guide Bhutan’s foreign policy and defense affairs in its neighboring country. A new friendly treaty on this issue took place in 2007, in which the need for Bhutan’s instruction from India was abolished and it became an alternative.
China, which cites history on all disputed issues, has been making similar arguments on the issue. According to China, the use of the Dauchalam name was used by Tibetan cowherds as old pastures. China also claims that to go to doklam, before 1960, the coworkers of Bhutan used to take permission from them, although there is no historical evidence of it in the historical context. In fact, the root of this whole dispute is the second, the area of Dokalam is strategically important for India. On the threshold of Sikkim, China, Bhutan and India, China is in an attempt to make the highway at Doklam, which is opposing the Indian camp. The main reason for this is that even if the smooth movement of China reached to Dokmal, then it could make its reach easier by reaching Chicken Neck, which connects India with the North-Eastern States.
In this area, the army has started the construction of the road in the Indian territory, which is India’s biggest exercise to rein in China’s minds. The tension of India is that if China succeeds in proving its supremacy in Doklam area, then it will take the lead in ‘Chicken Neck’ area, which will be harmful to India.
