"I have got the opportunity to interact with jawans here. I am very happy to be informed by my jawans that at this India-China border, which is LAC, we are working very sensibly and Chinese PLA (People's Liberation Army) is also operating sensibly. There is no tension here at LAC that is near Bum La Pass," he told reporters.
