Army Chief visits LAC
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.
