Pratibha Patil to visit LoC

 Jammu, Oct 6 (IANS) President Pratibha Patil will visit forward positions of the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir Friday, an official said Tuesday.
‘She is visiting (LoC) to boost the morale of the soldiers guarding the most challenging terrain,’ an army official told IANS.

Patil would visit the forward posts in Rajouri district, which of late has seen attempts by terrorists in Pakistan to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir.

The 744-km-long LoC, which divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, passes through high mountains, ravines and dense forests. Patil would be the second president to visit the LoC after A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
