The Indian Army has now become more attentive to deal with China. The army has taken an aggressive stand against China. Now more vigilance will be taken on the border.
The Indian Army has deployed its additional six divisions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China to respond to any misadventure from the Chinese side. For this, soldiers have been called from other important fronts. These include soldiers posted on the Pakistani front in Ladakh to soldiers engaged in anti-terrorist operations in the Northeast.
Army Chief General Manoj Pandey, in his maiden visit, took stock of the position and deployment of Indian Army troops along the border with China. There was a skirmish with the Chinese army two years ago in the Ladakh sector. In view of the trouble that started after this, the 3rd Division has been strengthened with additional deployment of Counter Terrorist Rashtriya Rifle Force (equivalent to one division) in the sector.
Changes are also being made in the deployment of counter-terrorist operations in the Northeast along the Pakistan border. Of the six divisions that have been deployed on the northern border, three were stationed on the Pakistan border.
focus on the northern borders
The Indian Army has also appointed two divisions on the One Strike Corps to look after the Ladakh sector as reserve forces to strengthen the Northern Command. One Strike Corps was earlier focused entirely on the Pakistan front, but now it is focusing entirely on the northern borders.
China focus more on border care
To strengthen the eastern sector, 17 Strike Corps is now fully prepared for the eastern areas along the Line of Actual Control and is responsible for the care of the entire Northeast. In Assam, the army has shifted the division engaged in anti-terrorist operations from there to look after the China border.
The Indian Army has given a message to the Chinese Army that now no other unilateral action should be taken to change the status quo, because India is more prepared for this than ever before.
