Shunning the practice of tolerance against brazen boundary violation by Chinese, Indian Security Forces have now started taking strong measures against Chinese intrusions. After being stalled due to threats from the Chinese, work on an irrigation project has resumed with additional security cover provided by Indian Security Forces, along the Indus river in the border town of Nyoma in north of Jammu and Kashmir.
The work was stalled here after armed Chinese People Liberation Army (PLA) personnel came up to the banks of Indus river and reportedly asked the contractor to stop the work on the irrigation project on the Kuyul-Gomba-Yardol-Thuksey Irrigation Scheme in the Nyoma Block. Taken aback by the Chinese Army's attempts to interfere, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) shot off letters to ITBP and Leh-based 14 Corps seeking protection for the contractors.

The work has since then re-started after Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), a border guarding force along the Sino-Indian border, deployed additional strength of armed troops to counter any Chinese interference on the project in this remote border town, 170 km from Leh.
Under the scheme, water will be lifted from the river and, released into a nearly 4-km long canal to provide irrigation facility and drinking water.
