He will inaugurate a new officer’s mess at the camp of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) force in Samba during his visit to forward areas of Jammu and Kashmir and may also go to posts in the sectors which has witnessed firing from across the border.

He will then visit border posts of Chumar in eastern Ladakh where Indian and Chinese troops had eye-to-eye confrontation in sub-zero temprature in September 2014.

It will be followed by a visit to the police memorial in Hot spring and ITBP posts in Thakung and Chushul.
Following a flag meeting in Spanggur Gap, both the forces had decided to reduce the intensity of deadlock by withdrawing troops in the Himalayan plateau last year.

The Home Minister will review the situation of Sino-Indian border and interact with troops of ITBP, which guards the border.

He is expected to chair a meeting with local administration and border road organisation on the topic of developmental activities being carried out.

Indian and Chinese troops recently had a face-off in Ladakh, the same area where people’s liberation army had pitched camps in April 2013 that had led to three-week long stalemate.

According to the officials, the Chinese troop had built a temporary hut in Burtse, north of ladakh which was demolished by ITBP and army jawans on September 12.

This visit was earlier cancelled twice, first due to unpleasantly cold weather and then due to key BJP meeting on Bihar last week.
