SHILLONG (BNS): The Indian army has dismissed reports of a build-up on the Sino-Indian border but said major infrastructure development work is on in the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Shillong-based 101 Area GOC Major General K S Sethi said that there has been no change in the force level along the border. “No additional forces have been deployed along the Chinese border anywhere in the North East,” Indian news agency PTI quoted him as saying.

“There has been no increase in the logistic support to the forces deployed in the region,” he said, adding, the infrastructure along the border in Arunachal Pradesh was being developed in a “big way.”

“The pace of the work has been slow due to the difficult terrain, but within a few years, the infrastructure will be improved substantially,” he said.

The 101 Area is responsible for providing logistic support to Army personnel deployed in the North East.
