Indian Army’s ‘Trishakti Prahar’ in front of China, this is how the strength of the army is increasing
This is a threat to India because if the Chinese army reaches the Jampheri ridge, India’s Siliguri Corridor will be at risk. The Siliguri Corridor is very important strategically. It is also called chicken neck. It is a very narrow pass through which the entire North East connects with the rest of the country. Doklam comes in the area of Bhutan but it is in the tri-junction of Sikkim-Bhutan and Tibet.
It was seen in the exercise that how fast the army can mobilize in different areas. In this, coordination was done with Civil Administration, Civil Defense Organization, Police and CAPF. Because in the event of war, all the agencies have to work together. The exercise was completed on Tuesday i.e. 31 January. In this, Integrated Fire Power Exercise was also done at Teesta Field Firing Range.
Through this, the preparation of Integrated Battle was also seen. In this, other fighter aircraft, helicopters, tanks, infantry combat vehicles, medium and field artillery guns, infantry mortars and many new weapon systems were used, including Rafale fighter aircraft. The fire power exercise was reviewed by Eastern Army Commander Lt Gen RP Kalita along with officials from BSF, ITBP, SSB, Civil Administration. A few days ago, Army Chief General Manoj Pandey had said that China has increased the deployment of its troops on the other side of the LAC in the Eastern Sector.
