Indian Air Force chief, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria on Tuesday described the prevailing situation along the northern border with China as “uneasy”. The IAF chief said a “no war, no peace” status was holding along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) amid the ongoing standoff at several friction points in eastern Ladakh.
He, however, added that the armed forces are prepared for any eventuality and that the Air Force particularly is resolved to counter “any misadventure”.
“Air power will be a crucial enabler in our victory in any future conflict,” the IAF chief said.
Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria noted that the recent induction of Rafale fighter jets along with Chinook, Apaches and other aircraft fleet has given a fillip to the Indian Air Force’s tactical capabilities.
