New Delhi: Even though the Doklam stand-off with China has been resolved, the Centre has decided not to lower its guard as NSA Ajit Doval will soon chair a high-level meeting with security forces deployed along the Indo-China border like ITBP and Army along with other agencies involved in infrastructure projects in the region.
Top government sources said that the NSA along with all agencies concerned will discuss a mechanism to evolve a comprehensive strategy to further enhance the security apparatus along the sensitive Indo-China border.
Incidentally, Mr Doval also played a crucial role in helping resolve the Doklam crisis having several interactions with his Chinese counterpart and other high ranking officials especially during his Beijing visit last month.
“The big take away from the Doklam episode is that there is greater urgency in the government now to ensure that there is a comprehensive security policy specifically related to the Indo-China border. This will be not just limited to upgrading the equipment and manpower for the security forces but ensure that other projects like roads and railways in the region also get a further push which in turn will help facilitate faster movement of troops to the region,’’a senior security official said.
