New Delhi- Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will be visiting Ladakh on Friday. This will be the first visit of Minister Rajnath Singh to the border after the Galwan Valley skirmish. Moreover, Rajnath Singh will be accompanied by the Chief of Indian Army Staff, General Manoj Mukund Naravane. During the time, the Union Minister and Army Chief would be interacting with the Indian Army and review the provision of security in Ladakh. This visit of the Defence Minister shows that the Indian government is being thoughtful about the border conflict.
After getting beaten up by the Indian Army soldiers, China has raised its army deployment in the other regions of Ladakh. Moreover, news has emerged that in the last 72 hours, China has deployed two army divisions, as in 20,000 Chinese soldiers in the Ladakh border region. Against this background, on Friday, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will be holding a meeting in Ladakh with the Indian army officials to review the military preparedness. At the time, even the senior Indian army officials of the Trishool division, which is deployed at the LAC will also be present. Following this meeting with the Indian army officials, Union Minister Rajnath Singh will visit soldiers, who fought at the Galwan Valley with courage and also those, who are hospitalised in Leh.
The third meeting between the Indian and Chinese Army Commanders, which happened on Tuesday for 11 prolonged hours was also unsuccessful. The Indian army officials also apprised that India will not be negotiating with China over the border tension at all. Moreover, India demanded China to withdraw entirely from the Finger 8 region. Furthermore, the Union Defence Minister declared his visit only a few hours after this discussion tumbled.
Meanwhile, the Chinese Army is struggling to establish its domain in the Pangong Tso region. However, the Indian boats will soon be deployed in this lake to push back the Chinese Army. Moreover, it is said that this decision was taken a few weeks ago, in a meeting with the chief commanders of all three forces. Hence, all three Indian military forces are going to contest against the Chinese Army at the Ladakh border.
