Videos showing a Chinese flag being unfurled in Galwan valley are going viral on social media platforms. Reportedly, the incident happened on January 1. Videos of the event were put out by various Chinese government mouthpieces.

Global Times tweeted, “In the Galwan Valley near the border with #India, under the characters “Never yield an inch of land,” PLA soldiers send new year greetings to Chinese people on January 1, 2022.”

Shen Shiwei, a Chinese state-affiliated media representative, tweeted, “China’s national flag rise over Galwan Valley on the New Year Day of 2022. This national flag is very special since it once flew over Tiananmen Square in Beijing.”

This came days after China “renamed” 15 places in Arunachal Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "break the silence" over the Chinese "incursions" in Galwan. In a tweet he wrote, “Our tricolour looks good in Galwan. There should be a response to China. Modiji, break the silence.”

There is, however, no statement from Indian government yet on this incident.
