Another proof of China's nefarious conspiracy of expansionism has come out and the whistleblower is none other than its own journalist who has presented it to the world. CGTN News Senior Producer Shen Shiwei posted a few pictures on social media in a bid to laud China's development. However, the same pictures exposed the country as they show the country has occupied Bhutanese land inside its border.

It is being said that China has established a village here. Notably, this place is just 9 kilometres from the place in Doklam on which India and China had a dispute in the year 2017. 

However, Bhutan has denied the reports of any Chinese village inside its territory. Bhutan's envoy to India, Maj Gen Vetsop Namgyel in response to a WION question said,"There is no Chinese village inside Bhutan."

Chinese CGTN News journalist Shen Shiwi posted pictures of this village and wanted to tell how much development China has done near Doklam. But as soon as the photos came out, China was exposed because this area comes under Bhutan's border. When the controversy escalated, Shen deleted the photos, but by then the screenshots of his tweet had gone viral.

This action of China is a major cause for concern for India because China has long wanted to occupy this area of ​​Bhutan and due to this, both countries came face to face in 2017. The area of ​​Doklam is on the tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan and China could have become a huge challenge for India by building a road here. This road makes it easier for China to reach the Chicken Neck or the Siliguri corridor of India, and through the Siliguri corridor, China could isolate northeast India.

China has now become the largest land mafia in the world. It has occupied 38,000 sq km of Aksai Chin from India. Similarly, many areas of Nepal are occupied by China and it is asserting its claim on many parts of Bhutan as well. It hasn't even spared Russia where it claims to 1.60 lakh sq km of Russian territory as its own.

In addition, it is in dispute with Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore in the South China Sea and is engaged in the East China Sea with Japan. It is also asserting its claim on Mongolia and Cambodia.
