The last ceremonial BPM between the two armies was held on the Indian side of LAC on the occasion of Republic Day. It signalled a return of normalcy between the two sides after the ceremonial BPMs were not held on India’s Independence Day last year, when China did not respond to a communication from the Indian side over holding the meeting. This was when Indian and Chinese soldiers were arrayed against each other during the 74-day long faceoff in Doklam plateau.
