Ladakh: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday visited jawans recovering from injuries incurred during the Galwan Valley face-off. "All of you, combined have given a fine response. All of you are in hospital and may not know that 130 crore Indians are proud of you. Your strength and courage are inspiring our new generation," the Prime Minister said. He added, "The world now knows that India`s brave hearts display such exemplary courage. Everyone is analyzing your bravery." "I have come here today only to greet you. By seeing you and speaking to you, I will take with me a vibe, an inspiration and our India becomes self-dependent. We have never bent before anyone and we never will," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.

As many as 76 jawans were injured during the Galwan Valley face-off with many of them undergoing treatment in Leh. The PM is on a visit to Ladakh along with Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat, and Chief of Army Staff General MM Naravane. He addressed soldiers in Nemu sector of Leh in Ladakh. In his address, the Prime Minister said, ""The age of expansionism is over. The world has moved on the path of development. The expansionist forces have ruined the world in the last century. But they have either been defeated or forgotten in the history."

The historic visit to the frontline in Ladakh comes at a time when India and China are engaged in a heated military standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. On June 15, a violent face-off between Indian soldiers and troops of the People`s Liberation Army (PLA) in Galwan Valley resulted in casualties on both sides. According to inputs, the face-off was a premeditated attack by the Chinese to disrupt the de-escalation process mutually agreed upon by both sides during a military commander-level meet at the Moldo border personnel meeting point on June 6.
