New Delhi, The three service chiefs of India’s armed forces called on Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday for a meeting to review the prevalent security scenario along the country’s borders, with particular focus on the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan.
The meeting came in the backdrop of Pakistan’s continuous offensive along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir through ceasefire violations ever since India abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution which granted special status to the state on August 5.
“Particular focus was given on the threat posed by Pakistan along the LoC with India. The Defence Minister reviewed the prevailing security situation along India’s borders with its neighbouring countries in his meeting with the three service chiefs. Security situation along the entire international border of India was discussed during the course of the meeting,” sources told IANS.
As per sources, the three service chiefs — Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria and Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh — were asked by Rajnath to maintain continuous alert and vigil along the borders...
Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh), In a significant move, US Ambassador Kenneth Juster visited the border area in Arunachal Pradesh to inaugurate the Tawang Festival and also said the US is funding the state in improving its health sector.
Juster put pictures of his declaring the festival open and participation in the event on his Twitter account.
This time, China has not said anything yet to the US envoy’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, which it considers as part of South Tibet.
Two years ago, China had reacted sharply to then US Ambassador in India Richard Verma’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh and warned that a third party’s meddling would only complicate the dispute between Beijing and New Delhi.
India has told China that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of the country.
Juster’s visit also comes days after India and China held their second informal summit in Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping...

New Delhi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will next week inaugurate a bridge in northern Ladakh that will ease movement of troops to the border sector of Daulat Beg Oldi, where a 21-day military standoff between India and China had taken place in 2013, sources in the Defence Ministry said here on Thursday.
The bridge is located across the Shyok River, a tributary of the Indus, and falls on the fag end of the road connecting Leh, the principal town of Ladakh, with Karakoram Pass on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China. An all-weather road linking Leh with Karakoram Pass, through Tangtse and Chang La Pass, had been completed earlier this year. As per sources, nearly three dozen bridges have been built across snow-fed rivers and streams that fall along this road.
Defence officials said Rajnath Singh is scheduled to travel to Leh on October 21 for inauguration of the Shyok bridge.
“The alignment of the Leh-Karakoram road was very much there earlier. But other means had to be used for transportation, that is, by helicopters or long-range patrols. Now it will be easier for India to induct, maintain and launch operations from the area,” a retired Army commander told IANS on the condition of anonymity.
Troops of the People’s Republic Army (PLA) of China had entered almost 19 kms into Indian territory in April 2013 and set up tents in Raki Nala, near the Daulat Beg Oldi sector. This area is located along the LAC bordering the Xinjiang province of China...
