PAC to review border road construction at LAC, procurement of high-altitude clothing for troops

NEW DELHI: In the wake of the recent violent clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers in eastern Ladakh, the parliament’s PAC on Friday decided to review the construction of border roads at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and procurement of high-altitude clothing for the armed forces, and may call the Defense Secretary and other top officials to be briefed on the same.
Members of the PAC, in which BJP enjoys majority and is led by senior party leader Bhupender Yadav, thwarted Chowdhury’s attempt to select the PM Cares Fund for examination saying its amount was not sanctioned by the parliament and therefore it cannot be taken up by the committee. (AGENCIES)
