- ‘If India had not invested in its armed forces, we would have lost Galvan’
- India’s stature has risen on the global stage after the Galwan Valley conflict
- Deputy Army Chief CP Mohanty said these things during a program in Delhi
‘If India had not invested in its armed forces, the country would have lost the battles in Galwan and Doklam.’ This is to say of the country’s deputy army chief Lt Gen CP Mohanty. He said that if the country had not invested in security, we might have lost the war in Kargil, Doklam. The internal security situation in Jammu and Kashmir would also have been turbulent. Our Northeast region too would have been in turmoil and the Naxals would have had a field day.
‘India’s stature rises after the Galwan struggle’
Indian Army Deputy Chief Lt Gen CP Mohanty on Sunday said the role played by the Indian Armed Forces during the Doklam episode and the Galwan Valley conflict not only enhanced the prestige of the country but also raised India’s stature globally. In an event, Lt Gen Mohanty spoke at length on the basic character of the Indian Armed Forces and highlighted the major contributions of the security forces during the 1965 war, the 1971 war and the Kargil conflict.
‘India will soon be counted among the world’s superpowers’
Referring to recent events, Lt Gen Mohanty said, “What happened in Doklam and Galwan has not only enhanced the prestige of the country, but it has also raised our stature at the international level.” Today everyone talks about India as a pure security provider country. Speaking at an event organized by the Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (VIPS), the Army Vice Chief said, “The time is not far when we too will be counted among the world’s superpowers.”
India gave a befitting reply to China in Galvan
Significantly, in 2017 there was a standoff between the soldiers of India and China in the Doklam tri-junction for 73 days. As a result, there was also the possibility of war between the two nuclear-armed neighboring countries. India had strongly opposed the construction of a road by China in the Doklam region. The dispute ended after several rounds of talks between the two countries. After this, on 15 June 2020, the Indian Army gave a befitting reply to the attacks of the vicious Chinese soldiers in the Galvan Valley in Eastern Ladakh.
