New Delhi, October 25:

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the country wants to restore peace along the Line of Actual (LAC), while, at the same time, asserting that India’s armed forces will not cede an inch of its territory to China.

“India wants an end to tension and restoration of peace. I am fully confident that our Army will not let even an inch of India’s land fall into the hands of others,” he said.

Singh was speaking to reporters after performing “Shastra Puja” (worship of weapons) at a key military base in Siliguri which is responsible for guarding the border in the Sikkim sector.

Chief of Army Staff Gen. MM Naravane and several senior officers of the Army were also present at the Sukna-based headquarters of the Indian Army’s 33 Corps.
