Bipin Rawat visits military base near China, says – How Indian Army knows how to protect border in difficult situation

On Saturday, Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat visited various air bases in Arunachal Pradesh and areas near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Assam to assess the security situation in western India. Official sources said. General Rawat completed one year as Chief of Defense Staff on Saturday.

According to sources, General Rawat met with Army, ITBP and Special Frontier Force (SFF) troops at various bases in Arunachal Pradesh, including Dibang Valley and Lohit Sector. He praised the Chief of Defense Staff for taking innovative steps to maintain effective surveillance and enhance operational readiness.

According to sources, General Rawat said that only Indian troops could be vigilant in such “challenging situations” and were always ready to work beyond their responsibilities in guarding the border. “Nothing can stop the Indian Armed Forces from being convinced of their responsibilities,” the sources said, quoting CDS.

Recently, after Ladakh, China has started reaching Arunachal Pradesh. In such a situation, this visit of Bipin Rawat is considered very important. In fact, China completed the construction of the railway on December 31 to connect the cities of Lhasa and Ningxing in Tibet, near the Indian border in Arunachal Pradesh. The Sichuan-Tibet Railway begins in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, and enters Tibet via Yan and Chamdo. The travel time of this train for travel between Chengdu and Lhasa has been increased from 48 hours to 13 hours. Construction of the railway, which connects Tibet in eastern Tibet and Lhasa, the capital of Ningxia, began in 2014.

On the other hand, the ongoing dispute with China over the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in East Ladakh is not over yet. Several rounds of talks at the diplomatic and military levels have also failed to resolve the dispute. However, the two countries are committed to resolving the border dispute and will hold talks in the ninth round soon. Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Colonel Tan Kafei Tan said in an online media briefing on Thursday that India and China are in talks after the eighth round of corps commander-level talks. Talks on withdrawing troops from the front are continuing. India and China have held several rounds of military and diplomatic talks to resolve the stalemate that began in May.
