China helps Pakistan build bunkers on Rajasthan border


Having failed to create disturbance in Kashmir, Pakistan is now opening a new front on India’s western front. With help of China, new bunkers and airbases are coming up on international border adjoining Rajasthan.Intelligence agencies have obtained photographs taken in Pakistan, which shows huge construction activities in border villages of Pakistan. The BSF has flagged this in a report to higher authorities last month.

Bang opposite to Ghotaru border in Jaisalmer, around 25 k away airbase is ready in Kadanwali’s Khairpur. It is being used for Chinese fighter planes chain good J-7, J.F-17, Y-8 radar, and other modern planes have been landing here. There is also an uptick in the presence of Chinese troops over the past few months.

The Chinese have been building another airport in Tharparkar, close to  Barmer. This base too is about 25km from the Indian border. The third airport is being built in Mithi along Gujarat border. Chinese flags are visible on construction sites.

China is also helping it’s “all-weather friends” in the construction of 100 bunkers while 200 dugouts have already been built on strategic locations. According to intelligence reports, advanced surveillance systems are being transported in a large vehicle. China said to have helped Pakistan in the purchase of modern convoy jamming system from Switzerland.

Besides, winter clothes and other equipment have been bought from a Hong Kong-based company including especially kind of hand gloves. The reason China is bestowing favours to Pakistan is the latter’s oil and gas reserves in this region, which it wants to procure. Intelligence reports suggest that around 10,000 Chinese workers from 30 companies are working in oil exploration and setting up a refinery.

The most wanted Hafeez Saeed too was seen on Rajasthan border last year. It is suspected that the bunkers built along the border could be used to facilitate infiltration of terrorists in Indian border.

“Pakistan can go to any length to create trouble in India despite global pressure. It makes Gujarat and Rajasthan more vulnerable and sensitive. Pakistan can open a new front in this sector to divert attention from Kashmir. The ongoing actitivy of setting up bunkers and airbase are part of this conspiracy and Indian needs to be vigilant,” Defence expert Dr. AS Behl said.  When queried, BSF IG Anil Paliwal refused to divulge anything. He asked to contact authorities in Delhi.
