New Delhi. The Northeast border with China was seen as a weak link of India from the very beginning. The fiercest war of 1962 also took place in that area. The geographical situation is such that it itself turns into an odd region. The forests are dense in the area. It rains a lot, the population is small and wherever people live, they remain isolated from the rest of the country. In this case, China is building a ghost village near the LAC to strengthen itself in this area.
China has built around 600 villages

Describing Arunachal Pradesh as the area of Southern Tibet, in 1962, the Chinese army had reached many areas of Arunachal Pradesh for the purpose of occupying it.

Vijay Nagar the ‘Geographical Prison’ of the country
If we look at the condition of the border area, then Vijay Nagar of Arunachal Pradesh is also called the Geographical Prison of the country. Because it is surrounded by Myanmar from three sides. The nearest town is 150 km away and the means of reaching this place is either on foot through dense forests or can be reached by army helicopter. Private aviation also does not run its helicopter service and all the residents living here are retired from Assam Rifles. Salt here is Rs.100 a kg, while edible oil is Rs.400 a kg.
