We have parity with PLA, can give befitting reply: Rajnath Singh

Defence minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said India’s armed forces have improved capabilities to achieve parity with China’s PLA and can give befitting response to any provocation.

“Today, in 2020, Indian armed forces engage with Chinese forces on equal footing and have developed strong capabilities to give a befitting reply to those who cast evil eye on the country,” Singh said while delivering the key-note address on “Self-Reliant India”, organised by Rajasthan BJP, to mark the birth anniversary of party’s ideologue late Deendayal Upadhyaya.

Singh’s remark came against the backdrop of the Army’s successful manoeuvre in taking control of strategic heights in the Pangong lake region of Ladakh and the warning to PLA commanders that jawans will not flinch from resorting to firing in the event of Chinese aggression.
