SP's MAI - - MILITARY UPDATES -

In­dian Army chief Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh Suhag vis­ited for­ward ar­eas in Ut­tarak­hand along the line of ac­tual con­trol (LAC) with China re­cently to re­view op­er­a­tional pre­pared­ness and in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment in the re­gion.

“The chief vis­ited for­ward ar­eas like Mana Pass, Har­sil and the like in the cru­cial cen­tral sec­tor of the LAC to take stock of the sit­u­a­tion. For­ma­tion com­man­ders also gave a de­tailed brief­ing to him on the op­er­a­tional and ad­min­is­tra­tive pre­pared­ness.”

While the 778-km line of con­trol (LoC) with Pak­istan re­mains volatile with heavy ex­changes of fire, es­pe­cially af­ter In­dian forces con­ducted ‘sur­gi­cal strikes’ on ter­ror launch pads in Pak­istan-oc­cu­pied Kash­mir on Septem­ber 29, not a sin­gle shot has been fired along the un­re­solved 4,057-km LAC for decades.
