The photo is dated 17 July, when the Defense Minister arrived in Ladakh. Here he said that no power of the world can touch even one inch of our land.

The Government of India has taken a major step amid the ongoing tension with China on the border. The government has given permission to the three armies to collect ammunition and weapons according to the 15-day war. Till now, the forces used to gather arms according to the 10-day war.

This decision is considered to be very important given the situation of Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh. This will enable the army to use stock and emergency financial power as per requirement. Apart from the country, there are plans to buy weapons worth 50 thousand crores from abroad.

Preparations to deal with both Pakistan and China
Sources in the government said that weapon systems and ammunition are being stored to fight 15-day war with enemies. The purpose of this exercise is to prepare the army for war with both Pakistan and China simultaneously.

Need felt after Uri attack
He said that the army had been given permission to increase the stock some time back. Many years ago, such preparations were made that the army should have resources for a 40-day battle. It was reduced to 10 days due to challenges and changing circumstances associated with storage of arms and ammunition.

After the Uri attack it was felt that the army had very little reserve stock for the war. The then Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar had increased the rights for the purchase of the Vice Chief of the Army, Navy and Airforce from 100 crores to 500 crores.

300 million emergency financial power to armies
The three armies were given an emergency financial power of Rs 300 crore to purchase the necessary equipment. It was then realized that they could be used in the event of war. At present, the forces are procuring weapons and missile systems, so that effective action can be taken on both fronts as the situation worsens.

Sources say that a large number of missiles and ammunition have been arranged for tanks and artillery to alleviate the concerns of the ground forces.
