Need to maintain relentless vigil: Western Air Commander


NEW DELHI (PTI): Against the backdrop of incursion by Chinese troops into Ladakh, a top IAF commander on Thursday said there was need to maintain "relentless vigil" in the emerging security environment in the region.

"The emerging security environment of the region calls for persistent focus and relentless vigil," Western Air Commander Air Marshal Arup Raha told a meeting of top officials of his command.

The Delhi-based WAC is responsible for the aerial security of the western and northern borders with China and Pakistan and is considered the sword-arm of the force.

Raha urged the commanders under the WAC to ensure "optimum utilisation of resources and safety and security of our valuable assets would give us an advantage as a cutting- edge fighting force and would give a fillip to our endeavours in meeting newer and bigger challenges".

Raha said the accelerated pace of development of operational infrastructure and new inductions, has helped the Command to achieve enhanced firepower and consequently a high level of operational preparedness.

"The dedication and commitment displayed by our personnel in making the newly inducted Su-30, C-130J and MI17 V5 squadrons, air defence sensors and communication systems fully operational in a short span of time deserves appreciation," he said.
