Arunachal: 17-yr-old boy abducted by China's PLA

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the armed wing of the PRC’s founding and ruling political party, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Besides the Central Military Commission (CMC) and several minor units directly under it, the PLA has five major service branches: the Ground Force (PLAGF), Navy (PLAN), Air Force (PLAAF), Rocket Force (PLARF), and the Strategic Support Force (PLASSF). A majority of military units around the country are assigned to one of five theatre commands by geographical location. 

The PLA is the largest military force in the world and constitutes the second largest defence budget in the world. It is also one of the fastest modernising militaries in the world, and has been termed as a potential military superpower, with significant regional defence and rising global power projection capabilities.

Formation of PLA

The CCP founded their military wing on August 1, 1927 during the Nanchang uprising when Communist elements of the National Revolutionary Army rebelled under the leadership of Zhu De, He Long, Ye Jianying and Zhou Enlai and other leftist elements of the Kuomintang after the Shanghai massacre of 1927 by Chiang Kai-shek.
