The situation at the India-China border remains tense after 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives in a clash in the Galwan Valley on June 15-16 when Chinese troops attempted to unilaterally change the status quo during the de-escalation. India and China have been involved in talks to ease the ongoing border tensions since last month.
Ajay had tweeted about the clash last month, writing, "Salute every soldier who laid down his life protecting India's border & honour. Jai Jawan, Jai Bharat Folded handsRIP Brave Hearts My thoughts are with your families during this hour. #GalwanValley #IndianArmy."
