Fact Check: Did the National Security Advisor allegedly congratulate the Commissioner Secretary of Ladakh?

  • Share


The letter in the name of Ajit Doval is confirmed to be fake by the PIB Fact-Check account on Twitter. 

A Twitter user Sayed Ali Ansari has been sharing what looks like a letter from the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval to Rigzin Samphel, the Commissioner Secretary of Ladakh. Here is the letter tweeted out by the user which has been shared by the same user multiple times, replying to several accounts with this particular image of the letter. 

Sayed Ali Ansari tweeted "Commissioner Secretary Shri Rigzin samphel IAS verified that NSA accepted Chines Army entered in India".

The letter seems to be controversial and was claimed to be allegedly sent by the NSA to the Commissioner Secretary. The letter starts off with congratulating the efforts of the Commissioner Secretary in the India-China stand-off. The letter seems to congratulate Samphel on the cooperation between the 14 corps ( which is the military deployment along the Kargil-Leh) and Central Government and ITBP in “maintaining secrecy” halt China’s efforts to garb the Nepalese. It further proceeded to say that these efforts by the government have exposed the “dirty plan of China”. 

This comes as more controversial and problematic, following the recent border stand-off between India and China. On May 5th, fistfights and stone peltings were reportedly carried out among the Indian and Chinese soldiers at the LAC and a few days later, another fight erupted at the Nathu La Pass in Sikkim. This recent border conflict is being feared of turning into an ‘all-out combat’ by Indian Analysts. 

The PIB took Twitter to confirm that this was false and no such letter had been written.

In conclusion, the letter being shared by a user claiming that a letter was allegedly sent by the NSA to the Commissioner Secretary of Ladakh. We could not find any previous instances of similar letters, thus the letter might not be an outdated one but made to spread propaganda. However, the fonts of the date on the top right corner and the name below the signature, seem to be a different font and look different to what seems as a printed matter in the letter. These type of fake news becomes more controversial considering the recent tensions among the military troops of the two nations and the infamous border conflict.
