NEW DELHI: With the military confrontation with China in eastern Ladakh deadlocked for the last 90 days, Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane is now visiting the Eastern Command to review the operational preparedness along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.
Gen Naravane will review in detail the security situation with Eastern Command chief Lt-General Anil Chauhan and all other top commanders at the 4 Corps headquarters in Tezpur.
“Senior officers will brief him on the existing situation and Army deployments to tackle the situation along the LAC in the region. The Army chief will then head for the Central Command at Lucknow on Friday,” said an officer.
With India preparing for the long haul in the military confrontation in Ladakh, the Army has also matched the troop, artillery and armour build-ups in “depth areas” in all the three sectors of the 3,488-km LAC – western (Ladakh), middle (Uttarakhand, Himachal) and eastern (Sikkim, Arunachal) – by the People’s Liberation Army.
