Army Chief Gen Dalbir Singh Suhag on Friday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is understood to have briefed him about the situation along the borders with China and Pakistan.

The Army chief gave a presentation to him on important issues, Army sources said in New Delhi.

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval was present during the briefing, they said.

The briefing came soon after the Army chief visited the northeastern region to review the operational preparedness of the formations deployed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Gen Suhag had also visited Panagarh in West Bengal to review the progress made by the force in raising the recently-sanctioned 17 Mountain Strike Corps, whose formations would be deployed from Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh in northeast along the LAC.

The situation along the Pakistan front has also been volatile with an increase in ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the International Border.

Soon after the Prime Minister took over, the Army had briefed him on several issues including the shortages of arms and ammunition being faced by the force.
