Chief of the Indian Army, Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane is visiting Tezpur in Assam on Thursday to review preparedness along the border with China. He is on a two-day tour to Tezpur.

Tezpur-based 4 Corps is responsible for monitoring parts of India’s border with China that fall in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Senior military commanders briefed Gen Naravane on recent developments along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and apprised him of measures taken by security forces to handle the situation.

The Chinese have built up troops along the LAC in eastern Ladakh all the way to the border with India in Arunachal Pradesh. At least eight divisions of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have been deployed on the Chinese side along the border with India that spans across 4,000 km.

Earlier in July, Gen Naravane visited the Vajra Corps formations in Punjab’s Amritsar and Ferozepur to review operational preparedness along the western border. He also made visits to the International Border in the Jammu-Pathankot region and was seen interacting with field formation commanders.

Gen Naravane is also part of the Centre’s high-powered China Study Group (CSG) along with Northern Army Commander Lt Gen YK Joshi and commanding officer of the 14 Corps Lt Gen Harinder Singh.
