“From LoC to LAC, whoever tried to raise their eyes towards the sovereignty of our country, our soldiers responded to it in the same manner,” the Prime Minister said during his Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort. He made a reference to the clash between Indian and Chinese troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley in June this year.
