Despite that, the Indian Army fought bravely and sacrificed lots of lives to shield the motherland. But today, we aren’t what we have been in 1962.”

Crediting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the infrastructure raise in Arunachal Pradesh and the Northeast in view that coming to electricity in 2014, Khandu stated: “Being witness to the love and interest by the central and state governments for the welfare of the soldiers posted at border outposts, the morale of our soldiers is very high.
