China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is enhancing infrastructure capacity across the international boundary in Arunachal Pradesh, according to the Army’s Eastern Command chief. However, Lt Gen RP Kalita, the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Eastern Command, said the Indian side is constantly updating its infrastructure and capacity to deal with any eventuality that may develop along the border.
“In the Tibet region, a lot of infrastructural development is taking place over the Line of Actual Control. “The opposing side is always improving their road, rail, and aviation links to better respond to a scenario or mobilize soldiers,” he said at a press conference in Guwahati.
Mr Kalita claims that Chinese officials have created border communities near the LAC that can be utilised for both objectives. “We are keeping a close eye on the situation.” We’re also updating our infrastructure and capacities, as well as the response system. He said these have put us in a strong position.
While improving capabilities and infrastructure in advanced regions, the Army Commander recognised that challenging terrain and harsh weather have been the major hurdles. He claimed that the Indian Army is completely prepared and has a “high degree of operational readiness.”
