Pema Khandu, who is on a three-day tour of the state’s border areas in Tawang district, met with Indian Army and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel guarding the country’s borders in the Himalayan state on Tuesday, telling them that “they are not alone in the mountains and the entire nation is with you,” according to official sources.
Sharing some pictures from his visit in his Twitter handle, Khandu wrote, “Seems like on roof of the world. Omthang view point in Tawang district at an altitude of 14300 feet offers picturesque view of the Himalaya. Proud to meet brave officers of the Indian Army who are keeping watch on the enemy in cold weather and life-threatening conditions.”
The Chief Minister said in a tweet that he met with ITBP forces near the Line of Actual Control at Lungur, “Humbled to meet our ITBP jawans at Lungur near India-Tibet China border in Tawang district.”
“May we never take for granted our comfort and peace while someone out there in the borders are guarding the borders in extreme conditions. Salute to our Himveer!” He also paid a visit to the Chhetri War Memorial near Tulung La Pass, where he lay a wreath in memory of the heroic Indian troops who gave their lives protecting the motherland against the enemy.
Paying tribute to Veer Jawans of 5 Assam Rifles at Chhetri War Memorial, Khandu said in another tweet: “Your supreme sacrifice will never be forgotten. You always live in our heart and in our memory.”
During his visit, the Chief Minister met the Brokpas (yak grazers) and inquired about their well-being, describing them as “true sentinels” of the border areas.
“Border people are our true sentinel. I am proud to meet the Brokpas of Sulungthi valley near the international border of Tawang district. Traditionally yak grazers, it’s because of their dwelling in the borders that we are able to thwart enemy’s claims over our land,” Khandu said in another tweet.
