LAC Standoff: Indian Troops Preparing For Long Winter In Ladakh
Crucial supplies being flown in regularly to stay equipped during cold months.
Temperatures in the high regions of Ladakh, along the LAC can get pretty testing during the winters but the Indian Army is seemingly prepared to handle them. According to sources, crucial supplies that soldiers would require to get through the long winter months are being flown in regularly. Over 50,000 Indian troops are expected to stay stationed at the LAC during this winter, keeping an eye on any attempts by Chinese forces to change the status quo, as they’ve done before.
The Indian Army troops are being delivered everything from specialised winter clothing, ration and arctic tents to portable heaters. Military planes and helicopters are being used to transfer these things to Ladakh almost on a daily basis. In a statement he made in the Lok Sabha yesterday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said, “I can assure you that the morale and motivation of our armed forces is very high…They are being provisioned with suitable clothing, habitat and the required defence wherewithal.”
