As India reconciles to having around 35,000 troops through the winter when the temperature is below -40 degree Celsius in Eastern Ladakh, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday held a meeting with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and the top military brass to discuss the situation at the border with China.

India has to build at least 5,000 habitats and construction in the inhospitable terrain generally stops in September.
