India-China face-off

‘Nehru also went to border after 1962 war, boosted morale of forces’: Sharad Pawar on PM Modi’s visit to Ladakh

'...But (then prime minister) Nehru had gone there. Even Yashwantrao Chavan, who was defence minister, too had gone to the China border and boosted the morale of the forces. When there is a conflict situation between two nations and forces are involved, the country's leadership has to ensure that the morale of the forces is boosted. I am not surprised that he (PM Modi) went there,' Pawar said.
