    India deploying more troops in Ladakh due to threat: Farooq Abdullah - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: India is befriending China on one hand and remaining "cautious" on the other by deploying more troops in Ladakh region due to "threat" perception, having learnt lessons from the past, Union minister Farooq Abdullah said on Monday.

    "We people have Army there (in Ladakh). (We have) one full division there and now we are putting another division there because we have threat from China and I don't say that outside but I am telling you because you are Indians.

    "I want to tell you that in one place we are befriending China but we have also learnt a lesson from China and that is why we remain cautious as well because we had one division we will be keeping another one there," he said.

    Good, if the news is true... better to be prepared rather than be sorry latter.

    Good move.

    Looks like MMS has succeeded in selling his trust-but-verify policy to his coffee club.

    The Army Chief, replying to queries on reported re-drawing of plans of a mountain strike force, and the ongoing military build-up along the China border said, “We are preparing our borders because that is our task and a Constitutional obligation (on us). The work is being done as it is an operational requirement and we are getting government support. The build-up is about capability building and not pointed at any particular nation.”

    The Army Chief was talking to reporters after reviewing the Passing out Parade of the 123rd course of the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla.

    Now this is What I called a statement.
