Parliament Panel Plans Visit To Galwan, Pangong Sites; Rahul Gandhi Skips

This would be the first multi party delegation to visit Ladakh since the border crisis.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence is planning to visit the Galwan Valley and the Pangong, which has been witness to a violent standoff between the troops of India and China, sources said.
 
However, reports suggest that it may seek the permission of the government before entering the strategically-located areas, they added. The 30-member committee, of which Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is a member, is hoping to visit the region in the last week of May or June.
 
The decision was taken in the panel's latest meeting, which Rahul did not attend. The panel's visit to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) depends on the approval from the government, the sources added.
 
This would be the first multi party delegation to visit Ladakh since the border crisis broke out in May last year.
