Jammu, July 15, (HS) Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane would likely visit Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh Union Territories to review the security situation. According to reports, Singh will visit Ladakh and Jammu & Kashmir on July 17 and18. Singh will be accompanied by Naravane and will be visiting forward locations there. Earlier on July 3, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a surprised visit to Leh and forward locations to review the ground security situation. The move caught most by surprise as it came at a time when India and China were embroiled in a month-long standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
