On Friday (July 3), Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise visit to Leh, Ladakh and was briefed by senior officers at a forward position in Nimu amidst ongoing tension with China. PM Modi was accompanied by Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat and Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane. Modi reached Nimu early morning today and he is presently interacting with the Army, Air Force and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel. Located at 11,000 feet, and surrounded by Zanskar range and on the banks of the Indus, this is one of the tougher terrains in that area.

PM is likely to visit the Leh Military Hospital to meet the Indian Army personnel who were injured in the Galwan Valley violent clash on June 15. The situation at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) on India-China border remains tense after 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives in the face-off when Chinese troops attempted to unilaterally change the status quo during the de-escalation. Earlier, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh was scheduled to visit Ladakh today to review the preparedness of the Army.
