Taipei (Taiwan): The People’s Liberation Army is no match to the resilient Indian contingent and while the Chinese establishment might refuse to accept this, its soldiers surely know that the going is about to get tough in Ladakh as the harsh winter season approaches.

India and China has been on the brink of a major conflict since April after the PLA intruded into Indian territory in violation of the agreement between the two countries along the Line of Actual Control. With the Indian Army and border security forces giving the Chinese side a taste of its own medicine, a panicky Beijing is building up its troop deployment along the international border.

However, a video that emerged on social media recently indicates that the PLA troops who are being sent to Ladakh to fuel China’s misadventures are not quite happy with their government’s move.

Pakistani comedian Zaid Hamid had on September 20 posted a video on Facebook in which several PLA recruits were seen crying on a bus as they were being transferred to Ladakh.

In order to validate that the video was legitimate, a Chinese Twitter user by the handle ‘@waynescene’ reposted the video on social media platform and wrote, “They were told that they would be going to the front lines after they got on the bus. The cannon fodder are crying!”
