ITANAGAR: Defence minister Rajnath Singh made an on-the-spot assessment of the country's defence preparedness along the line of actual control by taking stock of the security-related aspects in Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday.

According to a statement, the stock-taking meeting took place during his visit to the forward areas of 3 Corps in Anini, a village in Dibang valley in the north eastern state.

After his visit to the forward areas, the minister interacted with army personnel at Tezpur in Assam. He commended the dedication and sacrifice of the soldiers posted at the borders, bravely protecting the sovereignty, unity and integrity of the country.

Singh termed the armed forces as the very reason behind the strength and confidence of the nation. He said that strengthening the country's military prowess has been the government's top priority ever since it came to power since 2014, with focus on equipping the Services with state-of-the-art weapons and equipment through an 'Aatmanirbhar' defence industry.

Singh pointed out that the nation's international image has completely been transformed due to the bold decisions taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as the gallant deeds of the armed forces.

As part of the day's engagements, he interacted with the members of second religious expedition to Athu Popu, an annual trek of local Idu Mishmi tribe which is being facilitated by army since 2021 as part of their outreach and continued efforts towards supporting the locals & development of tourism.
