Rajnath Singh, India's Defence Minister, made a significant visit to Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh on Tuesday, marking the auspicious occasion of Dussehra.
In Tawang, the Defence Minister conducted "Shastra Puja" (worship of weapons), a traditional ritual that holds great significance in Indian culture.
During his visit, Rajnath Singh also paid his respects at the Tawang War Memorial, offering tributes to the brave soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation.
Additionally, he took the opportunity to analyze the situation along the India-China border, specifically focusing on the Chinese positions beyond the Bum La border in Arunachal Pradesh.
Military officers provided detailed briefings to the Defence Minister on the prevailing conditions at the border.
This visit holds immense importance, given the ongoing border tensions between India and China. The Line of Actual Control (LAC) has been a point of contention, with both nations deploying significant military personnel and equipment in the border areas.
While China has laid claim to parts of Arunachal Pradesh, India has consistently rejected these claims. Tawang, in particular, has been a focal point of China's interests.
