Chinese troops violated the Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA) in June, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley told Parliament Friday. In reply to a question, he said the Chinese troops tailed Indian patrols along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in violation of the articles of BDCA wherein the two sides had agreed they will not follow the patrols of the other side in areas along the LAC where there is no common understanding between the two countries.

“A protest was lodged against the violation in the flag meeting held on July 15,” Jaitley said.

The BDCA has been signed by the two countries in the aftermath of the incursion by Chinese troops in Daulat Baig Oldie area of the Ladakh region in April-May last year.

In reply to another question, Jaitley said India has so far completed construction of 17 strategic border roads out of 73 identified projects.
