NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that nobody has intruded into our border, nor has any post been taken over by China. PM Modi said this during the all-party meet to discuss the situation along the India-China border.
The virtual meeting comes days after the death of 20 Indian Army personnel, including a colonel, in a violent clash with Chinese troops in Galwan valley in easter Ladakh.
Here is what PM Modi said:
* The country has immense faith in our soldiers. I want to assure our soldiers that the entire country is with them
* Neither have they (China) intruded into our border, nor has any post been taken over by them. 20 of our jawans were martyred, but those who dared Bharat Mata, they were taught a lesson
* Whether it is deployment, action, counter-action…air, land or sea, whatever our armed forces have to do to protect our country they will do
* Today, we possess the capability that no one can eye even one inch of our land. India’s armed forces have the capability to move into multiple sectors at one go
* Till now, those who were never questioned or stopped, now our jawans stop them and warn them at multiple sectors
* In the past few years, to protect our borders, we have given importance to infrastructure development to protect our borders. The requirements of our armed forces, be it fighter planes, advanced helicopters, missile defence systems, that too is being given importance
* The areas which were not really monitored earlier, even there our jawans are now able to monitor and respond well
