Army: No impact on LAC access

New Delhi: Flashflood in the upper reaches of Uttarakhand has not affected the Army’s readiness to maintain its supply lines to Barahoti, 80 sq km of “contested” area along the LAC with China.

The flood has impacted one of the major routes to Barahoti and Niti pass, which lies 100 km from Joshimath on the north-eastern axis. “An alternative route is open,” Army officials said. The Pithoragarh-Darchula-Lipulekh road was not impacted. — TNS
