There is not an iota of doubt that country these days is preoccupied in multifarious tasks confronting number of challenges be it coronavirus, locust attack, joblessness, tumbling economy and latest in the series viz bitter standoff with China along LAC in eastern Ladakh where violent border clashes on June 15 lead to martyrdom of 20 Indian bravehearts though more than double of their Chinese counterparts were also dispatched to the next world by high spirited soldiers of Indian army. What is satisfying is the fact that at all the aforesaid fronts India is stoutly facing the adverse situations and emerging out with flying colours. The country has lately turned out to be like a citadel which is capable of tackling adversity with exemplary zeal and full might. The fortification against all odds confronting the country is already in place with all adversaries facing toughest time of their life. Taking the case of China, whose treacherous character once again came to fore recently with its troops supplementing rogue nation’s expansionist desire and trying to acquire parts of Indian Territory in Ladakh by raising their strength near border. The ill perceived motive of China was handled befittingly and the latest development on the issue is that the two sides reaffirmed to ensure complete disengagement of the troops along the LAC for “full restoration” of peace and tranquility in the border areas in accordance with bilateral agreements and protocols. Despite, China’s submission before India during today’s diplomatic talks, India cannot afford to blindly believe on Dragon’s commitment and therefore being in battle-ready mode is the one and only option before the country right now. It is though a good news that amid deteriorating ties with China, India has received complete delivery of 37 high end military helicopters including 22 Apache and 15 Chinook copters from US aerospace major Boeing which will help in ensuring robust defence in the conflict zone as the same are capable of doing miracles as far as military entanglements are concerned. The entire fleet is now part of the assets deployed in key air bases along the Line of Actual Control. As AH-64E Apache is one of the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopters and Chinook is a multi-role, vertical-lift platform, primarily used for transporting troops, artillery, equipment and fuel, India can now proudly boast of is upper hand in the region with no room left for any sort of apprehensions or negativity.
