After the border face-off in the Galwan Valley, the nationalism against China within India is rising sharply. Meanwhile, Chinese analysts are warning India to cool down the nationalism at home.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the government has given the armed forces full freedom to take any necessary action. The Reuters stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that "nobody has intruded into our border, neither is anybody there now nor have our posts been captured."
