Army rejects criticism over Leh medical facility

NEW DELHI: The Indian Army on Saturday termed as “malicious and unsubstantiated” criticism in some quarters about a medical facility in a military hospital in Leh where Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the soldiers injured in the Galwan Valley clashes.
In a statement, the Army said “it is unfortunate that aspersions are being cast on how our brave Armed Forces are treated.
The armed forces give the best possible treatment to their personnel.”
Prime Minister Modi made an unannounced visit to Ladakh on Friday, signalling India’s firmness in dealing with the border row with China in several areas of the region.
Modi also interacted with the soldiers who are undergoing treatment at the hospital, and told them that their bravery will be a source of inspiration for times to come. (PTI)
