The newspaper attributed the same to former BJP member of parliament, Thupstan Chhewang, who represented Ladakh. He said that he had received information from locals living in forward areas along the LAC in Ladakh that Indian soldiers were living in tents and it was not adequate for them in sub-zero conditions.
