New Delhi: Amid ongoing border stalemate at Ladakh’s Galwan Valley between troops of India and China, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday assured the nation by saying, “Nobody has entered our territory. Neither has anyone captured any of our posts.”
In order to discuss the India-China border row, the prime minister called an all party meeting, wherein chiefs and representatives of 20 political parties attended the virtual meet.
Besides, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar were also present.
On killing of Indian soldiers in the violent face-off with the China’s PLA, PM Modi said, “20 of our men were martyred, but those who dared to look Bharat Mata in the eye, they taught them a lesson.”
On ramping of infrastructure along the border areas, he said, “In the past few years, to protect our borders, we have given importance to infrastructure development to protect our borders.”
The prime minister further that the India’s air capability is being enhanced.
“The requirements of our armed forces, be it fighter planes, advanced helicopters, missile defence systems, that too is being given importance,” Mr Modi said.
He also said that the Indian troops are also monitoring those areas which were not really monitored earlier.
For deployment, action and counter-action, “Our Army, Navy and Air Force are doing their bit required to do. We have these capabilities and reason why no one can dare to look at ours’ even one inch of land.”
Today’s Indian armed forces can move along in different sectors, he said.
