No ‘adverse incident’ of airspace violation has been reported yet. However, after the December 9 night clashes along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh, the movement of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) warplanes and drones in China-occupied Tibet has suddenly increased. For the past few days, various sources in the Ministry of Defense and the Army have been reporting on the ‘activity’ of the Chinese Air Force. This time the evidence was also found in the satellite images taken by Maxar (satellite mapping company). The satellite image shows Sukhoi Su-35 (NATO-named ‘2X Flanker’) fighter jets, Su-30 MKI fighter jets, drones as well as sophisticated AWAX (Airborne Early Warning and Control System) reconnaissance aircraft at the Changdu Bangda Air Base in occupied Tibet. The Shangji KJ-500 series aircraft is capable of gathering accurate information about the ‘readiness’ of the Indian ground and air forces.

On Sunday, Delhi’s air quality was recorded in the very poor category and the minimum temperature settled at 6.2 degrees Celsius, two notches below normal.
Amidst the hijab controversy in Karnataka, the government is now preparing to bring a bill against Halal meat in the state. Its proposal has been prepared. The Basavaraj Bommai government is likely to introduce it in the House during the assembly session starting on Monday. At the same time, the opposition has accused the BJP government of the state of playing the Hindutva card before the elections. BJP MLA N Ravikumar has demanded FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) to ban things other than certified food items. Since the political atmosphere in the state is already hot regarding the hijab ban, now the opposition has got a new issue about the halal meat ban.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh has targeted Congress MP Rahul Gandhi. He said, “Chullu Bhar Pani mein Doob maare Rahul Gandhi. He is insulting Indian soldiers. Rahul knows neither the geography nor the history of the country. Rahul’s maternal grandfather, Nehru, gave thousands of kilometers of land to China. Today, under Modi’s regime, soldiers answer by looking eye to eye. Then whether it is Galwan or Tawang. Xi Jinping knows Modi, so he does not dare to enter. If Modi knows friendship, he also knows how to answer. The world is praising PM Modi. The CIA is saying that there is no nuclear war in Russia-Ukraine because of India and Rahul is criticizing it.”
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has said that the BJP is bidding crores to buy MLAs of Aam Aadmi Party but none of the MLAs is ready to sell. He said in the party meeting in Delhi on Sunday that the BJP bid crores for AAP MLAs in Goa but none was sold. AAP MLAs of Punjab also turned them away empty-handed. The Chief Minister sarcastically said that the Congress had not yet been able to form its cabinet in Himachal Pradesh. After forming the government, if this party takes so much time, the BJP will get a chance to sabotage it.
