In 2017, China tried to build a road in Sikkim, which was strongly opposed by India. This road was being constructed in the Chumbi valley, which is just 5 km away from the Siliguri highway (Chicken Neck). This road connects India with the eastern States. China wanted to construct this road only to obstruct this road.
