Both these locations became the centre of attention when the Chinese and the Indian army had another faceoiff.

“Visited the Yangste post at 1500 ft near India-Tibet China border to meet our Indian soldiers. The determination and courage of our jawans are praiseworthy who are putting up a brave front in guarding the icy heights of the border,” he tweeted.

“We are safe at our homes because our jawans are keeping strict vigil at the borders foiling any nefarious attempts by the enemy. It’s a pride feeling to be with our soldiers, to meet and interact with them. Visited the Yankee-1 border post near India-Tibet China border,” he added in another tweet.
