India’s northern borders equipped with upgraded infra; ‘will come out victorious in any war’, says Indian Army

The treacherous winter does not stop our soldiers from defending India’s sovereignty and integrity, and with new-age technologies making foray into our defence sector, the warriors are well-equipped to fight back the enemy in the best way possible.

Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane on Wednesday expressed this very same sentiment that his force is upgrading and developing the infrastructure at border areas in the northern regions to tackle India’s “nefarious neighbours”.

“Up-gradation and development of infrastructure along the Northern Borders are being carried out in a holistic and comprehensive manner including roads and tunnels, for all-weather connectivity, strategic railway lines, additional bridges across the Brahmaputra, up-gradation of bridges on critical Indo-China Border Roads, and storage for supplies, fuel and ammunition,” General Naravane said.

He said that since January 2021, there has been a positive development on our northern and western borders, adding that the Indian Army has also ramped up the capacity of the force, infrastructure, weaponry in the entire Northern front including Eastern Ladakh.

“In the last one year our capability across the Northern borders has grown in many ways. The overall security situation, in the North-Eastern Region remained under control. A robust security posture has significantly curtailed the operational space for terrorists. There has been a graduated de-induction of Army units, from areas where the security situation has improved. War or conflict is always an instrument of last resort. But if resorted to, we will come out victorious,” the Army Chief said.

When asked about India’s stand on terrorism, he said, “We, on our part, have resolved to show ‘Zero Tolerance’ on terror, and commit ourselves to extract dire costs, should that be forced upon us.”
