‘No War No Peace’ Status In Ladakh, Says IAF Chief RKS Bhadauria
Hinting at the tense situation at the LAC, the IAF Chief said that the Indian forces are well-prepared for any eventuality, adding that enhanced air power will give India an advantage in the future
Indian Air Force (IAF) Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria said on Tuesday that the situation along the country’s northern border is tense and in a ‘no war no peace’ status. Amidst increasing Indo-Chinese tensions in the Ladakh region, the IAF chief indicated that the forces are prepared for any eventuality.
With several rounds of military level talks yielding no results and China refusing to disengage from the disputed Line of Actual Control (LAC) locations, the military of both nations are preparing for the long haul through the winters in the inhospitable mountainous terrains.
While addressing a conference, Bhadauria also said that enhanced air power is crucial for India’s victory in any future conflict. With its recently acquired Rafale Jets and indigenous Light Combat helicopters already a part of its fleet, the IAF is well-equipped to combat threats from its opponents.
Meanwhile, a former Chinese general has warned the Xi Jinping government to be on high-alert and watch India for any attacks on China, especially during the November American elections.
Indian defence experts believe that China will not really able to wage a military war against India right now. With the United States recently operating its MQ-9 Reaper Drones over the South China Sea to warn China about its expansionist policies, the latter is on a backfoot. Sources also reveal that India’s access to Tibet gives it a tactical and operational advantage over the Chinese people’s Liberation Army (PLA).
