Situation in Sikkim, Arunachal unpredictable: Top Indian army officer
New Delhi: General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (GOC-in-C) Eastern Command RP Kalita stated on Friday that despite the tension along the India-China border, the situation in Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh is now stable but unpredictable due to the boundary dispute.
The Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh sectors is managed by the Eastern Command, ANI reported.
GOC-in-C Eastern Command Kalita, who was addressing a press conference, said, “There are different perceptions about LAC which leads to friction, however, the situation in both Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh is stable now but unpredictable because of the absence of delineation of borders.”
He further said that India is continuously monitoring the activities that take place across the border and we are prepared to beat any kind of emerging challenges, the report said.
“Eastern Army is responsible for maintaining territorial integrity on eastern borders and the task has been executed by our units and formations with utmost professionalism and dedication. We are continuously evolving and aware of oncoming operational challenges,” ANI quoted GOC-in-C Eastern Command as saying.
