The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Rtd.) while interacting with the All India Radio and Door Darshan on Monday said that Arunachal Pradesh is strategically located and shares international boundary with Bhutan, China and Myanmar.
Recalling the 1962 Chinese Aggression when China attacked India without any provocation, wherein he fought to defend our motherland, the Governor said that the wounds of that war are still fresh in his memory.
To prevent recurrence of such disaster the Central Govt. is taking bold and determined measures which can be seen in the instance of Doklam where the attempt of the Chinese incursion was foiled with grit and determination by the Indian Army.
To strengthen and to make the army more effective, we need home grown soldiers who are well acquainted with the people and topography of the area and will be an asset to the armed forces. His Excellency believes that our home grown soldier standing shoulder to shoulder with Indian Army Jawan is equal to eleven soldiers.
