In the backdrop of a continuing standoff between Indian and Chinese forces in eastern Ladakh, Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said that no one can snatch even an inch of India’s land and whatever is happening both on the Line of Control and the Line of Actual Control will be answered both diplomatically and militarily.
“There are military and diplomatic-level talks going on. I do not want to comment (on the talks), but I will reiterate what (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi has said. We are conscious of every inch of our land and no one can snatch it from us,” Shah said in an interview to CNN News18.
Referring to the Galwan clashes, he said, “…If our forces weren’t ready, there wouldn’t have been clashes that day.”
