Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane will be visiting Jammu and Kashmir soon to review the operational preparedness amid the ongoing Line Of Actual Control (LAC) standoff with China. According to reports, Gen Naravane will meet top Army commanders and review the security situation in the state.
The Army Chief’s visit holds significance since the armies of India and China have placed themselves on high alert mode and increased patrolling and troops deployment on both sides of the border since the Galwan Valley clashes in June.
Earlier today, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh asserted that no force in the world can stop Indian troops from patrolling the country’s border in the Ladakh region.
Replying to clarifications sought by MPs in Rajya Sabha on his statement on the border row, the minister said skirmishes and face-off with China in the last few months have been primarily over the issue of patrolling the Ladakh border.
