New Delhi: Defence minister Rajnath Singh will be visiting forward areas in West Bengal and Sikkim during his two days trip, starting on Saturday.

He departed for Darjeeling. During his tour, he will also inaugurate a road made by Border Road Organisation (BRO) in Sikkim.

"Heading to Darjeeling on a two-day visit to West Bengal and Sikkim. I shall visit the forward areas and also interact with the troops. A road constructed by the Border Roads Organisation in Sikkim will also be inaugurated during the visit," Mr Singh said in a tweet.

The minister will also interact with the troops deployed at the forward posts against the China’s People's Liberation Army (PLA).

This comes even as India and China are engaged in a standoff since April-May this year from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh in Northeast.

India has deployed close to 60,000 soldiers to counter the Chinese Army which first moved troops to enter into Indian territory in Pangong Tso and other adjoining locations.
