Prime News, National (New Delhi), October 18:- Days after Chinese President Xi Jinping directed People’s Liberation Army (PL) troops to get ready for war amid simmering tensions with India along Line of Actual Control in Ladakh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday (October 17) issued a stern warning to China saying Indian Army is always prepared to face any situation.
In an interview to News18, Amit Shah asserted that India will never cede “even an inch” of territory to China. “Every nation is always ready (for war). That’s the purpose of maintaining armies – to respond to any form of aggression. I am not saying this in reference to any particular comments, but India’s defence forces are always ready,” he said.
The Union Minister, however, noted that senior military officials from both the countries are in touch with each other to resolve the LAC crisis. “I don’t find it pertinent to comment as the country’s home minister. But I will repeat the words of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are on guard and no one can snatch even an inch of our territory from us,” he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
