mid the prolonged stand-off with China in Eastern Ladakh, Army Chief Gen. Manoj Naravane on Wednesday visited the forward areas and reviewed the ground situation along the south bank of Pangong Tso (lake).
The Army chief also visited Tara base and interacted with troops and disturbed sweets ahead of Christmas.
India and China have been involved in an over seven-month-long standoff in Ladakh with both sides brining in heavy deployment of troops, artillery guns, tanks and armoured vehicles in close proximity.
General Naravane reached Leh earlier today on a visit to Fire and Fury Corps.
He was briefed by General Officer Commanding (GOC), Fire and Fury Corps and other local commanders on operational preparedness of our forces, the Army said.
