But at times there are celebrations that take place at the local levels. Celebrations were going on our side by our Tibetans in the Demchok sector. Based on that, some Chinese also came to see what was happening. But there has been no intrusions. Everything is normal,” the Army chief had said.READ | No intrusion by Chinese in Ladakh’s Demchok, says Army chief Bipin RawatWATCH | Army general exposes Pakistan’s lie on terrorFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
