A ceremonial Border Personnel Meeting (BPM) with China on the occasion of New Year 2016 was held at the Chinese hut at Damai of Zayu Garrison in Chengdu Province, China. The Chinese delegation was led by Senior Colonel Hu Xiao Bao and the Indians were led by Brigadier SS Bhogal.
This time the meeting was marked by a novelty. After paying respect to the National Flags and playing of National Anthems, the Chinese soldiers surprised and enthralled the audience by their performance of Hindi Bollywood songs “Jai Ho” and “Ankhe Khuli Ho Ya Ho Bandh”. The Chinese women soldier performed a scintillating dance on the rendition of the Group songs by Chinese men.
The meeting and performance of the cultural programme by both the delegates showcased the ever growing bonhomie and brotherhood amongst the Armies of both the Nations. It also fostered the feelings of friendship and commitment towards enhancing the existing cordial relations and maintenance of peace along the LAC.
