New Delhi: On the occasion of the Army Day, Army Chief Bipin Rawat said that if Pakistan dosen’t stop sneaking in militants in Jammu and Kashmir, they would be forced to ‘step up the military offensive’.
The Army Chief added that his forces will not let anti-India activities succeed in JK at any cost.
“Pakistan Army has been continuously trying to help militants sneak into India along LoC (Line of Control) in J&K. We are using our might to teach them a lesson,” he said.
“If we are forced, then we may resort to ‘other action’ by stepping up military offensive,” he added.
While addressing the forces, he pointed out that disputes and transgressions were continuing along the Line of Actual Control at the Northern border with China and the Indian Army is ‘working to stop them’.
Rawat recently was in the news after he said that teachers in the valley teach two maps to students-one of JK and other of India. Reacting to his statement, Education Minister Altaf Bukhari had said that Army should not meddle with education and concentrate on their own job.
“Perhaps the people who are giving comments on how we should run education sector are not doing their job properly and that’s why we are suffering,” Bukhari had said.
