Jammu: Union Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said on Thursday that the Army will be provided all support to ensure that it is fully equipped to give a blow to the adversary as and when required.
Bhamre, who was on a two-day visit here, visited forward areas of Poonch, Pir Bhadreshwar and Buchhamandi, according to a defence spokesman.
All support will be provided to ensure that the Army is operationally fully equipped to give a blow to the adversary as and when required, Bhamre said.
The minister’s visit assumes significance as it comes in the wake of repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch. In the past three days, three persons including two minors were killed and 18 injured in cross border firing.
During his visit to the forward areas along the LoC in Buchhamandi, Bhamre interacted with soldiers over a cup of tea. He was briefed by top commanders about defence preparedness and efforts being undertaken to thwart any mis- adventure by the adversary in this region, an official said.
Bhamre emphasised that the government was fully sensitive to the problems faced by soldiers while operating in such difficult and arduous conditions.
The minister commended the alertness of the troops deployed along the LOC and appreciated their efforts in foiling the nefarious designs of inimical forces.
He commended the alertness of all the troops deployed along the LoC and appreciated their efforts in foiling the nefarious designs of inimical forces and stressed on the need to maintain a high degree of vigil.
