In view of the increasing military exercises along the India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh, Army Chief General Dalbir Singh on Tuesday visited Assam to review operational readiness and internal security situation.
Lt General D Anbu, who is General Officer Commanding of Gajraj Corps, briefed the Army chief.
“In his two-day visit that concluded today, the Army Chief, along with Commanding-in-Chief Eastern Command Lt Gen Praveen Bakshi, was briefed by Gajraj Corps GOC Lt Gen Devraj Anbu who updated him on the security situation in Assam,” a defence spokesman said.
Singh expressed his satisfaction on the conduct of operations by the Army in bringing the insurgency situation under control.
The Army chief also reviewed the defence preparedness of Gajraj Corps as it is deployed on the Line of Actual Control, the de facto boundary between India and China.
Recently a Su-30MKI had made its maiden landing in the frontier state. Within days of that, China’s first stealth fighter, the J-20, was spotted at the Daocheng Yading airport in the high-altitude Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
