Such a smart camp has been arranged for the soldiers deployed along the border with China to avoid the harsh cold. Much research has been done to build these camps. In these camps, electricity supply, hot water, heating facilities and other essential things have been taken care of. The specialty of this camp is that even at minus 40 degrees, it provides protection from cold to the body.
The arrival of this camp will help the soldiers to keep a close watch on the enemies. Let us know that the dispute started between India and China in the summer is not settled yet and 50,000 soldiers are still stationed there. Now in November, the temperature in Galvan, Pangong and South Pangong has dropped from minus 20 to minus 25 and the temperature drops further to 5 to 10 degrees due to wind chill factor in this area. Now, heavy snowfall has also started in this region and there is a possibility of snowfall up to 40 feet height. It is very difficult for a soldier to be stationed in these areas for so long. As part of a major campaign, rations, kerosene heaters, special clothing, tents and dispensaries have been arranged for the entire winter, 11000 sets of which have recently been sourced from the US.
