General Pandey said, ‘Our soldiers are capable of thwarting any nefarious design of the enemy.’
Indian Army Chief General Manoj Pandey was speaking at a press conference in the capital Delhi.
New Delhi. Days after the standoff with Chinese troops in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang, Indian Army Chief General Manoj Pande on Thursday said the situation along the India-China border is “stable” but is ‘unexpected’. Addressing a press conference in the capital Delhi ahead of Army Day, General Pandey said that the troops deployed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) were successful in maintaining a strong position to strongly thwart any nefarious designs of the adversary. Huh.
General Pandey said that the situation is stable and under control, but nothing can be said and adequate forces have been deployed along the LAC to meet any challenge. He said that our soldiers have been successful in maintaining a strong position. He told that both sides have managed to find a solution to five issues out of seven. The army chief said that talks are going on between us at both military and diplomatic levels.

Referring to the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, General Pandey said that the implementation of the agreement on ceasefire on the Line of Control (LOC) in February 2021 is going on. However, he added that cross-border support to terrorism and terrorist infrastructure still persists. Along with this, the army chief also said that a proposal has been sent to the central government to include women personnel in the artillery regiment of the army.
Let us tell you that Army Day is celebrated every year on 15 January. General Pandey said that he is fully aligned with the national vision of the future and has decided to make a change. He said that this time Army Day is special because it is also the 75th year of India’s independence.
