New Delhi: No power on earth can stop the Indian Army from patrolling, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said today in parliament on the dispute with China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.
Responding to the Congress member AK Antony's statement on Indian soldiers being pushed back to traditional patrolling zones, Rajnath Singh said: "That is the reason for our fight with China."
After a statement in Rajya Sabha on the India-China dispute, Rajnath Singh also assured opposition members that there would be no change in patrolling patterns in eastern Ladakh, the site of the dispute.
"The patrolling pattern is traditional and well-defined. No power on earth can stop Indian soldiers from patrolling," Mr Singh told Mr Antony (Defence Minister in the previous Congress government).
