New Delhi: China has unilaterally violated bilateral agreements signed in 1993 and 1996, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Tuesday. Addressing the Lok Sabha, during the monsoon session, Singh addressed the ongoing India-China border tensions and said that both nations have different perspectives on the Line of Actual Control (LAC), which led to the face-off.
Singh also reiterated that while a peaceful resolution, through disengagement, is a priority, India is prepared for every eventuality.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
