PM Narendra Modi Lands In Leh, Interacts With Army And Air Force Personnel

PM Narendra Modi has reached Leh Ladakh and is interacting with the army, ITDP and Air Force personnel. Modi Ji will also interact with the jawans who were injured in the Galwan valley clash.

He is being given a joint briefing by the Army and ITDP staff. Modi Ji reached Leh today morning and is at one of the forward locations in Nimu located at 11,000 feet above the sea level.

 Modi is accompanied by Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat and Army Chief General MM Naravane for the unannounced visit. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has not gone along with the PM to take stock at the forward locations.

An official said how cautious they are this time

“Last time we had issued a rather optimistic statement based on what was agreed upon by Lt Gen Harinder Singh and his Chinese counterpart Maj Gen Lui Lin. And then for the next 10 days there was no movement from the Chinese side to honour their commitment,” 

“It later emerged that as the two commanders were talking, the Chinese had come into Patrolling Point 14 in Galwan Valley, where the bloody clash took place, and built a wall and put up tents. They say something at meetings but go back and do nothing. We have decided we will not use the word ‘dis-engage’ till it actually happens on the ground.”
