Use the Ladakh crisis as an opportunity

Civilians need to focus, laser-like, perhaps by creating a Defence Reforms Unit nested within the National Security Council, to push the military to adopt necessarily painful organisational reforms.

Xi replaces PLA commander who started Ladakh standoff; fingers crossed in Delhi

The change of guard in the leadership of the Western Theatre Command has sparked hope in New Delhi that General Zhao’s replacement may not be as vitriolically anti-India. Gen Zhao, who had also engineered the 2017 Doklam conflict with India, has been seen as a hardliner against India and Bhutan.
This is the first time that an officer appointed to lead the Western Theatre Command does not have experience of serving on the Indian border. General Zhang (in photo) is 58, much younger to Zhao, who reached the retirement age of 65 in the summer this year.(Sourced)
