Srinagar: Chinar Corps Commander Lt Gen ADS Aujla said the Indian army is fully prepared to take control of Pakistan-administered Kashmir and the forces are ready for any action on orders from the government of India.

Aujla was interacting with journalists in Srinagar on Rajnath Sigh’s comments that the BJP-led Government of India will merge the Pakistan-administered Kashmir with India.

“Whenever the Central Government takes such a decision, orders will come to us and in such a situation, we are fully prepared. Apart from our conventional strength, we are also strengthening ourselves modernly, so that we do not have to look back in such a situation,” Lt Gen Aujla said.

Speaking at a ‘Shaurya Divas’ programme in Srinagar on October 27, Rajnath Singh had said, “We have just begun walking north, our journey will be complete when we implement the resolution passed unanimously by the Indian Parliament on February 22, 1994, by reaching Gilgit-Baltistan.”

Commenting on the prevailing situation at LoC, Lt Gen ADS Aujla said that a lot of parameters are showing signs of “normalcy” and the challenge is to sustain the ceasefire.

He also said that in the last 75 years, the capacities and the capabilities of the Indian Army have been upgraded. “Our preparedness is at a very good level and whenever it is needed to be displayed, you will see a very different impact,” he said.
