Srinagar (NVI): Lt Gen Harinder Singh, General Officer Commanding ‘Fire & Fury Corps’ visited forward locations in Eastern Ladakh on October 18 and reviewed the operational preparedness in the Area of Responsibility.
Interacting with the troops deployed in the sector, Lt Gen Harinder Singh appreciated the tenacity and dedication displayed by all ranks, despite the extreme challenges of terrain and weather.
He complimented them for their high morale and urged them to continue to discharge their duties with the same zeal, in the best traditions of the Indian Army.
Lt Gen Harinder Singh was accompanied by General Officer Commanding, ‘Trishul Division’, who also briefed him about the various infrastructure development activities being carried out in the region.
It may be mentioned that, last month the Indian and the Chinese troops had a face-off along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh. The standoff that lasted a day, however, ended after delegation-level talks were held.
The face-off between the two troops reportedly happened near the northern bank of the Pangong lake in Ladakh.
