There is a phase of festivals in India. After the end of Navratri, preparations for Prakash Parv Deepawali have started. Meanwhile, brave soldiers away from their families and homes are standing on the border for the protection of Mother India.
The deadlock with China is becoming increasingly serious. The Modi government is trying to restore peace by giving a strong message to China every moment, but the tension does not seem to be decreasing at the moment. In the Mann Ki Baat program, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the people of the country to light a lamp in honor of the soldiers posted on the Ladakh border.
Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat has asked the three armies to be ready to deploy troops as well as face any adversity. The situation in East Ladakh can become worse at any time. The armed forces should be ready for any scenario and the military strength should also increase.
It is noteworthy that General Rawat has made it clear for the three forces that this is not the usual time for troops, artillery and tanks deployed along the 1597 km Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. China’s PLA has already deployed strategic jammers in Arunachal Pradesh and large-scale infrastructure and storage capacity is being augmented in both Xinjiang and Tibet.
The coming days are going to be very important. On 27th, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will address all the commanders.

Whereas the 29th day is very important when every aspect of infrastructure development on the border will be closely discussed and reviewed.
