Army got political signal to occupy 6-7 locations on LAC in May: Official

The Army’s move to occupy dominant heights in the Chushul sub-sector and bolster its position in the border face-off with China in eastern Ladakh was taken after a political go-ahead in May to occupy “six to seven locations” along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), a senior government official told The Indian Express. Following these directions, the top official said, the Army formulated plans and outmanoeuvred Chinese troops in August-end to occupy the heights, including Mukhpari, Rezang La, Rechin La and Gurung Hill among others, and the south bank of Pangong Tso in the sub-sector.
