Chief of Defence Staff stops peace time activities.
General Rawat has made it clear to all the three Services that these are not normal times with troops as artillery and tanks have been deployed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh. He has asked that all peace-time activities must be curbed at this stage.
“As situation in Eastern Ladakh can get worse any time in case of an accident, the armed forces must be ready for any scenario. It cannot be that while the entire Northern Army Command and Western Air Command are battle deployed in frozen condition, the rest of us can’t be engaged in peace-time activities.
