Soldiers at LAC ready for any eventuality, says Army chief

Srinagar, Sep 04 (KINS): Chief of Army Staff Gen MM Naravane on Friday said that that the Indian troops were vigilant at the LAC and ready to deal with any situation as he undertook a comprehensive review of the situation in Ladakh, where China’s PLA troops have been playing menacing games of intrusions.


Gen Naravane said the soldiers on the border had high morale and “they are ready to deal with any situation and make the army and the country proud”.
The army chief, who is on a two-day visit to Ladakh, was talking to a news agency in Leh.


This reiteration was keeping in with his earlier statements, and the assertions made by the Chief of Defence Services Gen Bipin Rawat on Thursday that the armed forces were capable of dealing with “two-front situation, alluding to the China-Pakistan nexus and the anticipation that the duo may open fronts against India from their respective sides. China shares LAC with India, while Pakistan has international border and Line of Control with India.


Gen Naravane’s Ladakh visit that began on Thursday took him to some of the frontline locations close to the LAC where he interacted with all ranks, particularly jawans, to know about their morale and how they would deal with the situation in the eventuality of China increasing its aggression.


China’s attempts to intrude into the Indian territory on the intervening night of August 29 and 30 in the southern bank of the Pangong Tso, a mountainous lake, have increased tensions on the borders, as China, despite claiming commitment to peace and tranquillity on the borders, violates the sanctity of the LAC.


Gen Naravane, sources said, had assured the troops that they would get all support from the country.(KINS)
